Allen Solly, one of India's most popular and recognized brands in the branded premium apparel segment announced the launch of its most innovative concept yet – Colour Lab.

This unique concept, the first of its kind, enables colour enthusiasts to co-create with Allen Solly through an interactive tablet available at the stores.

In Spring Summer 13 they introduced 14 never before shades in shirts and trousers which turned out to be a raging success. And this Autumn-Winter, Allen Solly presents a one-of-a-kind product innovation that goes far beyond tweaks in fabric and style, into the exciting realm of digital technology.

A product innovation that uses the finest of fabrics, an intelligent digital tablet and a robust dedicated manufacturing and distribution system to deliver custom-coloured merchandize. Just walk into an Allen Solly store near you, pick up the Colour Lab tablet, conceptualize and design your unique colour and we’ll match it for you in just 15 days and have it delivered using the best color and garment technology.

Allen Solly aims to target the 25-30 year old urban, upbeat, fashion conscious and socially connected man. The concept has been rolled out in 100+ stores across the country and in smaller towns making the technology accessible to the discerning. The initiative will be leveraged through a comprehensive media roll out. The campaign will play out across key metros and smaller towns over the course of next three months with an equally aggressive social media buzz.

Speaking on the launch Mr. Sooraj Bhat (Brand Head) Allen Solly said “For 20 years now, we have enjoyed a frontrunner’s fame for creating relaxed work wear for the unconventional mind. With the launch of “Friday Dressing” in 1995 and the brand’s celebrated Yellow Shirt commercial four years later, Allen Solly officially became a name forever synonymous with colour and innovation.” “Now, we are taking it to a whole new level”.
