At the Bengaluru store opening, Splash also launched its new collection Love Summer.

“Splash is consistently involved in delivering high fashion season after season. We are delighted to bring out the best of the brand’s personality and sync it with our new collection - #LoveSummer - this season’s key collection, which has an easy tropical vibe to it. Consumers have received the collection very well. It is young, tropical, quirky and conversational – a true reflection of our customer. With Splash’s launch at Commercial Street, we look forward to increase our reach to the fashion enthusiasts of Bangalore,” said Splash COO Kalyan Kumar.

“Our ATL activities include bursts of radio a week either way of a new store opening or the launch of a new product line, with some print and online campaigns. We also do a number of BTL activities, like in the case of the store launch today, where we have the band ‘Peepal Tree’ performing at the store.
