Denim – the timeless textile, earning its good name by being tried and tested throughout its history in many different ways. Coming from humble beginnings, it was created to be a long-lasting fabric essentially worn by people at hard labor. It was an innovative tailor named Jacob Davis – and an enterprising businessman named Levi Strauss who came together to conceptualize and create the very first pair of the iconic ‘blue jeans’.
As we can see, mapped out by its rich history, denim has seen a variety of styles on people through time, this being a proof of its undeniable versatility.
Taking advantage of its adaptability, Vaishale Mittal has conceptualized Cross A Line, a luxury womenswear label centered around our beloved denim. The garments are embellished with delicate embroidery on a number of collaborative denim fabrics such as khadi, recycled cotton, and handloom denims. Being a denim oriented label, Cross A Line makes use of various textile craft techniques to construct luxury garments that have underlying androgynous themes, making this versatile fabric truly limitless.
Due to its wide popularity and immense consumption at all levels, denim is mass produced in commercial methods, treating the fabric through various chemicals in ways that aren’t necessarily environment friendly. On the contrary, Cross A Line indulges in ethical production practices, branding themselves as a sustainable luxury denim wear label. Not making use of any kind of chemical treatment on their fabrics, Cross A Line uses only organic natural dyes to spice up the color palette.
Working exclusively with hand-woven, environmentally safe denim, each piece is autonomously designed to bring to life the label’s spirit. With their dynamic detailing, well crafted, hand-woven fabrics, the subtle embroidery hints at rebellious styles with various hues of beauty and grace. These statement denim essentials are pieced together to create contrasting outfits that upon closer examination, bring out the detailing of the clean lines and minimalist concepts.
Androgyny is the new black
Aiming at creating a sense of empowerment, the themes of the collection aren’t confining by nature and have androgynous motifs. With their sustainable practices, meeting exceptional standards of beauty in its rebelliousness, Cross A Line is riveting and literally and figuratively ‘crossing lines’ by being beyond bounds
