Fashion designer Randell Gomes who originally hails from Goa is putting together a special Monsoon Collection of garments and accessories which include casual wear as well as office wear for the monsoons. His collection will also include trinkets and accessories and some colorful umbrellas, all-weather jackets and even shoes and slippers – they are all part of Randell Gomes’ Monsoon Collection 2014.
Says Randell Gomes who is currently holidaying in Fiji while speaking to news agency IndyaNewz.com over the phone, “Monsoons in Goa and also Mumbai are a nightmare at times. The roads are flooded, the power is down and communication is hampered. Phone lines are on the blink. People normally stay indoors during the rains and most of Goa used to come to a standstill. I am working on an all-season collection of afffordable and wearable garments, accessories and even other monsoon-wear like colorful umbrellas which sport luminous paint, which makes them easily detectable in the dark. I remember my early childhood in south Goa during the monsoons about 43 years ago. The lights would go off and we had to keep looking for our footwear and umbrellas whenever we wanted to go out particular in the late evenings. Sometimes it rains so heavily even during the day that it seems it's mid-night in Goa. Most of my accessories in the Monsoon Collection sport fluorescent paints and colors which gives the products a techno feel and would appeal to the youngsters."
The collection is made of all-weather materials and is reasonably priced. Prices start from Rs 400 and can even go up to Rs 20,000/-, but the economy range is between Rs 400 to Rs 2000/-. Psychedelic colored umbrellas in fluorescent paints are priced between Rs 300 to Rs 1000/-. This range should give similar Chinese made products a run for their money. While Chinese products are unreliable and either break or spoil within weeks, my products are guaranteed to work for at least a year, explains Gomes adding that his slippers and sandals should be a big hit among young girls.
