    Even as international spring-summer ramps have seen head-to-toe indigo in the form of replica designer handbags shirtdresses
    at Gucci, pantsuits at Tod's, boot-cut pants at Prada, rhinestone encrusted jeans at Dolce & Gabbana and denim jackets at Burberry and oversized shapes at Yohji Yamamoto, on
    home turf too the rough-and-tumble fabric has moved from rugged streetwear to high-fashion flavour of the season. While purists like Singh have delved into raw selvedge
    handloom (khadi) denim and taken the hand-spun, hank dyed, hand woven and hand-stitched route to artisanal excellence, there are others like Aneeth Arora of Pero, who have
    prettied up upcycled denim with floral embroidery and Raakesh Agarvwal, who, in complete contrast, has given a distressed, shredded and altogether decimated rendition to the
    style staple. But what all three diametrically different collections have in common is a broadened design direction that veers away from the ubiquitous classic jeans and
    explores shapes like pinstriped suits, dungarees, shift dresses, crop tops, culottes, jackets and footwear, even bags. From suiting tailored in indigo denim for formal
    occasions, to jumpsuits for a night out and drapes for the boho chic vibe — the desi spring-summer runways has seen them all. For Arora, who includes denim in big and small
    measures in all of louis vuitton replica Pero's collections, the summer collection ‘Love on Foliage' saw repurposed
    jeans from Italian brand Pence taking on a touch of dainty with delicate embroidery, trims and hem detailing. "Pero is all about comfort clothing. We use denim every season
    to show wearers how they can team their Pero clothes with their daily wear. But the idea is to take a mundane pair of jeans and personalise them by adding a dash of
    playfulness. The wearer will discover surprises in every garment," says Arora. And while Pero keeps its upcycling philosophy going with its denim range as well, others like
    Urvashi Kaur and Anjali Patel Mehta are using the sturdy fabric to add different dimensions to their lines. "My summer collection Ziran was inspired by Xining, China. I
    wanted to bring the starkness of cheap replica handbags its tough terrain to my collection and decided to add the rough texture of
    denim to lend structure to the clothes, thereby establishing a dichotomy between rigidity and my trademark fluidity," says Kaur.
