Like many foreigners, French designers Iris and Emeline were also fascinated by the vibrancy of India symbolised by the chaiwalla, barber, auto rickshaws, fruit juice corners, cows, and messages on trucks. Purple Jungle brings out the colour of everyday life in their range of kitschy accessories like bags, posters, coasters, cushions and sofas. Their products already retail out of stores in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai and Surat. The products here are displayed in an unusual manner. While the bags hang from white plastic taps, pouches are stored in steel utensils and stuffed toys in plastic tubs. The shape of the bags may be conventional and the material ordinary, but the funky designs do the trick here.
WHERE Shop No 16, Hauz Khas Village COST Rs 200 to Rs 600 ( Pouch); Rs 600 to Rs 2,000 ( bags); Rs 1,000 onward ( cushions
