Love Gen, the label founded by Bhavana Pandey, Dolly Sidhwani and Nandita Mahtani took inspiration from Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s upcoming feature, Gully Boy and put together ‘Gully Gen’—a collection that’s an ode to hip-hop and its influences on street culture. The Gully Boy cast, complete with rappers, walked the runway clad in menswear jackets, hoodies and T-shirts adorned with statement slogans from the film.
The fashion collection by LoveGen with its light fabrics and prints like cotton single jersey and French terry also features the film’s thematic expression with slogans such as ‘Mere Gully Mein’, ‘Straight Outta Gully’ etc. Gully Boy’s collaboration with LoveGen with its distinctive and vibrant collection resonates with what the hip shopper truly wants.
Zoya Akhtar was earlier quoted, “Gully Boy is the voice of the streets. It’s the swag and the survival that comes with self-expression. This clothing line will appeal to anyone who shares the same ethos. Freedom, choice, rebellion, individuality, poetry and above all hip hop.”
