Kalki Koechlin Explores Her Sporty Side With This New Collab And It’s Exciting
It is not uncommon to spot your favourite celebrities decked out in designer wear every time they are out and about. And while there is a strange thrill to spotting them in their every day best, it when they are more real, more casual that it is exceedingly charming. Almost relatable. We met with Kalki Koechlin to kick off her new collab collection with Hidesign, which is all kinds of fun, bold and sporty! We loved the casual designs and sat down with her for a tete-a-tete. We got some pretty rare insights into the quirky performer and how she manages to stay stylish on the go.
These New Bags Are For The Young & Restless
Talking about herself, the actress admits that she tries to be active and on her feet every chance she gets. A big fan of slacklining, deep sea diving, surfing and trekking, Kalki is a huge fan of mixing style with practicality. With the new collection, that is what Kalki and the brand have tied to achieve… a range of hip and cool bags that the millennial working woman will appreciate. Bum bags, sling bags, messenger bags, work bags, backpacks, big slings and shoulder bags, the collection is a motley mix designed to serve the woman on the go.
Kalki’s Design Inspirations
Talking about the inspiration behind the designs, Kalki stressed on her personal style leaning towards solid colours mixed with sleek detailing. Her ideal go-to bag is the backpack from Hidesign that she still uses. A rich, tan bag is something that she relies on for travel and everyday use. The collection also sports a younger and bolder vibe, which she attributes to her glamorous lifestyle that requires you to make appearances in your fashionable best.
A Few Things Kalki Wants You To Know
Talking about her connection with Pondicherry, which is the brand’s home base, the collection features an eclectic mix of bags handmade from premium quality leather and cool designs that work as accessories at work or on vacay. Talking about the importance of having a great bag in your wardrobe, Kalki stresses that the one staple that you *have* to have is a BIG bag! One which is big enough to carry your essentials, whether its a laptop to work or your swimsuit to the beach!
