springup boyfriendshirt 360x540 Introducing: Nor Black Nor White Spring Up Spring/Summer 2011

Nor Black  Nor White takes a simple yet modern approach to clothing that even my super-conceptual, avant-garde-drawn self can appreciate.  Anchored on traditonal Indian craftsmanship, two young women, Amrit Kumar and Mriga Kapadiya, took on the task each season of highlighting a particular Indian region’s styles and construction techniques. As a way to blend their Canadian (woohoo!) and Indian  roots the  collections  provide the kind of clothing we would all love to own. Made in small quantities, this line provides the luxury of illustrating traditions of fabric dying known as “bandhani khatri,” plus beading and embroidery from the Kachchh Gujarat region. Enjoy a look at their latest titled  “Spring Up” on the next page and  a view of the very intricate process here. Makes you look at tie dye in a whole new way. Enjoy!
