The East India Company is a line of casual clothing for men, women and children with a colonial past – a history stretching back to the 1600s when the first English explorers came to the Far East looking for trade and in the process founding an empire in India and colonies all over Asia. When the sun finally set over the British Empire, they left behind not just a trail of colonial heritage but a legacy of tropical-inspired comfortable clothing.
With a nod to its historical past and hints of nostalgia, the East India Company collection recalls a time past when easy dressing and comfort was of paramount importance to combat the stifling tropical heat. This is expressed in easy-to-wear garments in lightweight fabrics like cotton, silk, linen and rayon.
This tradition of adaptation and stress on comfort is reflected in each new collection where the melange of the latest global trends, new styling, seasonal colours and interesting details combine to produce exciting and fashionable collections that can take you from an adventurous safari trip right up to a night out in town.
