Tina and Nikita Sutradhar are two Indian sisters who, after having moved to London to study at the College of fashion, they decided to found their label in the English capital Miuniku , a term created by the merger of parts of their two names. Their style is a continuous interplay between clean lines and graphic details, minimalism and ostentation. Looking for a balance between simplicity and sophistication, these two girls in their early twenties came to their second collection "Mundane Things." The inspiration for this proposal winter are everyday actions that we perform every day such as washing dishes, cooking, washing machine, all in an almost mechanical way, without thinking. Each of these actions is part of a daily routine, boring, repetitive and predictable, which the designers want to bring our attention, for us to regain possession of our life, in every aspect, even seemingly trivial. On an aesthetic level these suggestions are reflected in a series of garments made of various fabrics, jersey, wool, silk, organza and vibrant colors that refer to the graphics of the packaging of detergents. The volumes are over and the clean lines and precise, such as bending, stretching that you make the shirts. The life of every day goes into fashion in an attempt to prove that all things, even the most trivial, it can be mundane, even glamorous.
