Padini Authentics is inspired by the energy and buzz of the collegiate lifestyle. Created for the day-in-the-life of college students, it is a label of cool casuals and relaxed chic for students and young working adult from 18 to 25 (and of course, anyone who remains young at heart!). There is even a spin off label, Padini Authentics Kids, offering pint-sized campus styles for kids and teens.
Padini Authentics is rooted in a design philosophy that revolves around campus living
and the laidback lifestyle that comes with being a student. From geek chic through to jock cools,
the styles take the wearer easily from classroom to a casual hangout in a hipster café, from a
basketball game to weekend parties. The brand strikes a creative balance between current chic
and classic apparels. Its designs are both easy-to-wear and easy-to-match,
allowing for creative expressions of fashion individuality and confidence.
It is fuss-free fashion with room for interpretation. Staples like denim jeans, skirts and shorts;
chinos; graphic T-shirts; polo T-shirts; shirts; and dresses are basic go-to pieces for
him and her. These college-wear staples can be jazzed up by layering, accessorizing and
original mix-and-match ideas. Each collection also features latest inspirations from the runways,
reinterpreted to fit in with the collegiate style.
Fabric choices put a premium on comfort and laidback styles. The colour palette is made up of a fusion of neutrals and seasonal shades that are effortless to put together. The styles favour stripes, checks and solids as well as logos and in-trend graphics. Every season sees adaptations to these design pillars to keep collections fresh, relevant and appealing.
