Reby Jindal's label Guapa's Pondi'23 is all about fun-filled style
Recently showcased at LFWxFDCI show it's all about glamorous beachwear in vibrant floral prints
The city of Pondicherry has always been a creative source of inspiration for many designers and Reby Jindal's resort wear label Guapa is no exception either. Renowned for its colourful resort wear, their latest edit Pondi'23 pays a creative homage to Pondicherry.
“This collection is the culmination of my reminiscing of the coastal lagoons with blue waters of the Bay of Bengal, the French cottages surrounded by bougainvillaea shrubs and the colourful streets of the French quarters. It is a love letter to Pondicherry painting a romantic picture of the breezy picturesque surroundings of a city I dearly love. Easy breezy silhouettes and sustainable breathable fabrics transport you to your favourite beach town," tells Reby.
