Brand Name: WYCI

Designers: Spandana Meka Rao and Niveditha Adagiri

Current trend: Monochrome ensembles, experimenting with headgear, cross cultural influences, athleisure, exaggerated lengths in sleeves and shirts. Internationally floral and tiger prints are being seen but we’re a little tired of seeing florals on Indian Wear.

Favourite creation so far: That would be a really funky, cool robe in jute wool that we did with an exaggerated intricate hourglass in gold zardosi. It sold well in Dubai.

Favourite muse: It was a big high to see Ranveer Singh wear and love our funky pieces. It would be M.S. Dhoni who looked like a quintessential Indian hunk did in our classic creation.

On taking designing cues from the past: Fashion is all about reinvention. I think the past always lays a foundation for that.

Advice to experimental, fashionable men:  Don’t be afraid to try on new and interesting looks and then always end up buying stuff that highlites your personality. Definitely mix and match separates and brands, it makes the look more unique!
