Suppandi and Tinkle have been at the forefront of Indian pop culture for the last 40 years and we could not hope for a better collaborator than Anushka for this one-of-a-kind clothing line. This Nush x Suppandi collection is reminiscent of all those lazy summer afternoons we spent reading stories of India’s favourite simpleton. The collection brings back the innocence and joy of childhood while also being contemporary and chic.”
Anushka says, “I used to read a lot of Tinkle comics during my summer vacations at school. Suppandi was my (imaginary) buddy, as I would gobble up comics featuring him on lazy summer afternoons. I wanted to flesh out his place in our happy childhood memories with the NUSH summer collection, and we’ve worked at retaining the simple, comfortable element of Suppandi in his line. While we celebrate the Avengers or Mickey Mouse from the West, images of Suppandi will reignite fond recollections of childhood for many people.”
