Lakmé Fashion Week and United Nations Environment programme 

 Circular Design Challenge presented the winning “Malai” collection “Malai”, the accessories and apparel collection, made a stunning impression among sustainable fashion enthusiasts. Susmith Chempodil and Zuzana Gombosova of “Malai” won the 2nd Circular Design Challenge at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020, their collection was inspired by the life cycle and ecology of the coconut palm was truly a unique concept.

Highlights

The collection was a grand expo of how bio-composite material, based on Bacterial Cellulose grown on water from mature coconuts and natural fibres, could be an alternative to leather for fashionable accessories and garments. The core of “Malai’s” collection was coconut circularity and sustainability. The accessories were designed from malai bio composite and supporting materials like waxed canvas. The addition of fabrics like organic cotton, banana jersey, hemp canvas and second-hand Mundu fabrics from South India gave the collection its natural character.

  Design Aesthetics

Detailing for the accessories was intense and revolved around handcrafted straps and handles, while the clean simple bag shapes had shells made from malai and inners in waxed canvas.  The other Design elements are Braiding along with the use of blueprints as well as lacing.
