431-88 was started in 2012 with the idea of bringing luxury sportswear to the forefront.
The clothes are crafted for the modern woman who loves her comfort and gives equal importance to what she is wearing during the day and what she wears when she goes out. With it’s relaxed aesthetic and urban look, each collection consists of separates that can be worn numerous times in different ways.
Each season, 431-88 exhibits a sharp focus on absolute clean cuts and detailing. In every piece traditional seams and darts are manipulated to achieve a constrained distortion. Looking back at the evolution of our clothes from the overly grand silhouettes of the past to the simpler cuts of today, the label questions the possibility of distortion being where fashion goes next.
The designer, Shweta Kapur graduated from London College of Fashion in 2011 and is now based in Delhi. Before launching her label in 2012, she trained under Burberry (London), VPL (New York), Nitin Bal Chauhan (New Delhi) and Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla (Mumbai).
431-88 currently retails from Amethyst, Aura, Rudraksh and Sasya.
