What was one every woman’s favourite sleeping suit is now the most radical summer silhouette.

Elaborately styled on the runway, casually worn at brunches or even on the red carpet, the silhouette is somehow finding its way back. Fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani answers the question. “Maxis cover everything; they are as comfortable as a nightie and that’s precisely why you see them coming back.”
