Barve has created two diverse collections. While his 'Lightness of Being' epitomizes calmness, sound sleep and wellbeing; 'Toxin' on the other hand is aimed at the vibrant energy of young India with a modern, graphic and funky vibe.
"I believe that the collection will be a must have for people with contemporary aesthetics who are seeking a tinge of modernity and joy in their homes," Barve said in a statement.
Datta has collaborated with the hallmark brand by designing two collections - 'Artisanal', which focuses on the evolved consumers who appreciate the finer details in life, including the sheets they sleep on.
His second collection 'Elysian' is a print heavy line comprising of micro and macro prints, apt for the discerning youth of India.
He said: "For a young brand like Kallol Datta 1955, it has been a pleasure to work with an iconic brand such as Bombay Dyeing and I look forward to seeing the Signature Line 2014 in homes across India."
The collection was launched at a glitzy event held here Tuesday.
