A100% stitch-free swim line, it was launched at ‘Mare di Moda’ in Cannes and wasted no time in becoming an integral part of holiday wardrobes and providing confidence for women through their ‘prêt’ and the ‘made-to-measure’ swimsuit services. The brans takes pride in its Indian cultural ethos, which is evident in its modest cuts, bold usage of colour and impeccable finishing.
In 2012, Shivan and Narresh became the first Indian label to showcase at Miami Swim Week. The brand was also included in Forbes magazine’s celebrated “30 Under 30” list and recently designed vintage swimsuits for the Hollywood movie, Life of Pi. Brazilian flip-flop brand, Havaianas, collaborated with Shivan & Narresh for a special collection. The brand even has a lifestyle beverage dedicated to it – the Cointreaukini, by French brand Cointreau and its custodian Alfred Cointreau.
