ADYAR IS THE DISCRETE WORLD OF INDIAN-BORN AUSTRALIAN VAZ RAJAN.

INFORMED BY RESEARCH THAT TRACES DIVERSE CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL REFERENCES, ADYAR REIMAGINES NOTIONS OF LUXURY IN AN ALCHEMY OF EUROPEAN FINESSE, AUSSIE PUNK PRAGMATISM AND INDIAN SOUL.

VAZ RAJAN MOVED FROM SYDNEY TO PARIS IN 2010 TO START HIS EPONYMOUS COLLECTION, WHICH FOUND HOME IN STORES INCLUDING L’ECLAIREUR IN PARIS AND LIFT IN TOKYO. IN 2012 HE PUT HIS AMBITIONS ON HOLD TO WORK FOR RICK OWENS AND WAS IN CHARGE OF THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE MEN’S AND WOMEN’S FOOTWEAR COLLECTION. SINCE 2014 VAZ HAS BEEN AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT IN LUXURY CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR.

ADYAR WAS FOUNDED IN 2016, STEMMING FROM VAZ’S DESIRE TO CREATE A PERSONAL WORLD THAT REACHES OUT TO CONFIDENT AND FORWARD-THINKING INDIVIDUALS. HEREIN, SUBVERSIVE CONCEPTS ARE MATCHED BY UNIQUE MATERIALS AND DECEPTIVELY SIMPLE SHAPES THAT REVAL RIGOROUS CUTS, PRECISE DETAILS AND EXPERT ITALIAN CRAFTSMANSHIP.

ADYAR IS NAMED AFTER VAZ RAJAN’S PLACE OF BIRTH – A HOMAGE TO HIS ROOTS IN SOUTHERN INDIA.
