House of Pataudi is focused on changing the perception about ethnic dressing being limited only to festivals and occasions and bringing it back to every day wear.
Speaking on the launch, Ananth Narayanan, CEO, Myntra-Jabong, said, “We are very excited to partner with Saif and Exceed Entertainment to launch, ‘House of Pataudi’, a first of its kind brand in the country that embodies royalty and a rich cultural heritage. We are clearly focused on a strong customer proposition and currently there is a huge gap in brand offerings in the ethnic wear space, especially for men. House of Pataudi is an ideal fit, being rich on tradition, heritage, design, and offers customers a slice of the world that we believe is lost, at price points that are highly affordable.”
Commenting on the launch of his brand, Bollywood Actor and Producer, Saif Ali Khan, said, “House of Pataudi for me is an extension of my family legacy. From the way it has shaped up, I could tell House of Pataudi is a tasteful curation of Indian ethnicity and finer sensibilities bordering on the Pataudi heritage. Fashion and history are two areas I have personally been inclined towards over the years and am happy that we are taking a part of the Pataudi Legacy forward through this brand. The teams at Myntra and Exceed have put in a lot of research and effort and I believe we have all the right ingredients to build upon. Can’t wait for millions of young Indians to embrace their culture through House of Pataudi.”
