Sahil kochhar’s intricate looks highlight his innovative approach towards materials and craftsmanship. Weaving in the myth of the Banana palm into his logo, he envisions crafting clothes as pieces of art. The banana palm, which is considered the fruit of lost paradise, is significant to the point where the lines between fantasy and fact blur also reflecting his ever lasting love affair with nature and all its beauty, reminiscing panoramic landscapes made of flowers and birds, layers of wide palms and lush jungle trees; the essence again is that of paradise.
“The telltale sign of luxury lies in the micro details of every garment, from the way it catches the light to the timeless quality of its craftsmanship. For us, our work has gone beyond creating garments that hang on a rack, rather every garment is a work of living art that becomes part of a family’s legacy. These are the pieces you pass down across generations that you cherish in your closet. There is a sense of the ephemeral stitched onto each garment”
