SHOP PUNIT BALANA AT ENSEMBLE
A native of Jaipur, Punit Balana established his namesake label in 2015 and soon became a recognized name in the fashion industry. Punit, works out of his hometown and references traditional embroideries and textiles from here. He works with these on trendy and modern cuts and silhouettes. His ability to interpret stunning prints by giving the traditional Rajasthani block printing a 21st century facelift has earned him a reputation of being incredibly talented. He works only with organic and homegrown textiles and also supports traditional techniques like mirror work embroidery.
Punit’s clothing being organic, homegrown, traditional and modern all together appealed to us at Ensemble and soon after he was established we added his clothing to our repertoire in 2017. He defines his experience with us as not only one of pleasure but also one where his values and ethics matched ours.
We work with him closely and ensure that we have the most exclusive, trending and latest collections at the best prices, both for the online shop and our 5 stores across Mumbai and Delhi.
SHOP PUNIT BALANA COLLECTIONS: FROM PRINTED CONTEMPORARY TO INDIAN GLAMOUR
Punit’s collection brings together an amalgamation of bold colours, strong prints and varied styles and cuts. The label’s signature pieces combine traditional aesthetics with modern design which is what made him popular so rapidly. His collections are deeply rooted in culture but remain suitable due to their wearability and unique design. He is also known for launching mini capsule collections through the year suitable for festive occasions and is also a popular participant at the Lake Fashion week.
The label which is a take of Rajasthani work is a creative collection of block prints and indian motifs playfully and tastefully put together. Punit is able to make effortless statements with progressive designs while keeping in mind affordable price points in the luxury market. His motto for his works is modern designs which though inspired by the traditional are extremely easy to wear. Off his brand Balana says, “my brand doesn’t define itself by being ethnic or tribal, couture or contemporary but rather by the purpose the clothes have,” His label now makes womenswear, menswear and accessories, all in keeping with his signature style.
The beauty of Punits’ collections is the fact that his designs are versatile and glamorous together. The range always has pieces that are traditional with experimental, westernized silhouettes. For example while saris, lehengas and kurta sets are always a part of a collection there will also be modern silhouettes with peplum shararas, jacketed lehengas and pant suits in the same. He also extends his collection to include tunics, dresses, tops and other contemporary silhouettes for basic daily wear.
Ideal for weddings, sangeets, cocktails, receptions, poojas or mehendis, his Indian wear is very sought after while his more trendy looks work well for brunch parties, festivals, holidays or resort weddings. The wearability of the garments makes his designs an investment worth making for your wardrobe.
Enjoying working with natural fabrics and hand woven embroideries for his pieces, Punit uses pure and organic fabrics like chanderi, silk, mulmul, georgette, organza, satin and dupion. He combines Bandhini prints and striped patterns effectively and loves to use a colour palette of fun colours and prints ranging from blue, cream, black, white, yellow, green, purple and rust. His prints are also embroidered with mirror work, gota, zari and zardozi.
