What Makes It Awesome

Think streetwear is all about being 'baggy' and ultra-casual? Well, it's time you have a look at Shia Rai, an eponymous designer label (brand) based out of Delhi whose Haute streetwear clothes are a mix of structure and fluidity with designs inspired from the best of yesteryear fashion and sub-cultures.

Selling online and through Instagram (@shiarai_official), the brand does streetwear for both men and women and has a unisex collection as well. Women will find skirts, tunics, crop tops, midis, maxis, flared pants, bell bottoms, shorts, sweatshirts, and jackets on Shia Rai's e-store. We love the space-inspired collection that has everything from a bralette to a tunic and has a 90's hip-hop vibe to it. Even rapper Rajakumari has been seen flaunting it. If you're looking for a more dressy vibe, then Shia Rai's red off-shoulder dress (INR 7,500) is a good pick.

Shia Rai's men's collection is more unisex in nature rather than being exclusively for men. You have oversized shirts, coats, grid pants, embossed tees, and sweatshirts on there. Men can also have their slice of the space collection in the shape of a hoodie, tee, or shorts. The Japanese lettering embroidered coat (INR 11,000) is also something that we really like.

Both men and women shouldn't miss out on Shia Rai's self-embossed tee collection. They have options in beige and black currently, while the white and purple ones are out of stock. Maybe they can do a custom order for you? (DM or mail them for that). The tees start at INR 2,300.

Pro-Tip

Shia Rai keeps pushing out a 'dead stock lot' on their IG handle. The pieces are upcycled from scrap fabrics, are limited edition, and well, just brilliant. You know what to do next, don't you? Yes, go follow and DM them.
