By Jahanvi Kamra
Raftaar is an A/W 2021 streetwear collection designed for women who desire a polished yet comfortable approach to their on-the-go lifestyle. The word Raftaar is Hindi for ‘speed’ reflecting the fast-paced lifestyle of the wearer, as well as the ever-changing nature of the fashion industry. Each piece has a focus on function, with several adjustable features allowing the individual to modify the design to their own height and/or modesty preferences. This, combined with a new muted color palette, presents a capsule-style approach with multiple opportunities to wear each piece. Innovative hardware choices add a one-of-a-kind addition to this highly wearable, street-ready collection.
