Cosmo: What was the inspiration behind this collection?
Nainika Karan: "We wanted this collaboration to reflect our signature style, which features a lot of ruffles, bows, floral prints, and embellishments. We were inspired by fashion icons like Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, and the range is all about romance and glamour."
C: How did the collab come about?
NK: "Well, after our first clothing collab with Koovs did so well, we couldn't resist coming back with a shoe collection. Plus, like every girl, we are obsessed with shoes! So when we got a chance to create something new and interesting, we jumped at the opportunity. This gave us a chance to really create the kind of shoes we're always looking out for."
C: What kind of a woman do you see wearing these shoes?
NK: "The collection features very stylish pencil heels—and we see a very glamorous, fashion-forward woman sporting them."
C: How would you wear 'em?
NK: "Well, these stilettos have that statement-making yet understated quality about them. You could dress them up or down—they'd go just as well with a fun, flirty cocktail dress as they would with a simple shirt dress or a pair of jeans."
C: What is your favourite piece from the collection?
NK: "It'll have to be the red, velvet pumps with the bow. They're so classy and versatile!"
The collection comprises of 19 styles ranging from Rs. 2,100 to Rs. 3,000 with a strong emphasis on meticulously crafted designs that exude timeless appeal—definitely a looker.
