Not Just Black is an Indian designer brand by Kalyani Desai which specialises in menswear. Kalyani Desai started her career as a menswear stylist where she worked with GQ Magazine and went on to working with big names in the industry like Nagarjuna Akkineni, Mammootty, Dulquer Salmaan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Akhil Akkineni and Prithviraj Sukumaran. She is also a personal shopper for industrialists where she does a complete styling consultation based on their requirements, body types, design sensibilities and customise looks for them.
Heartened by how well this was received, she began working on creating Not Just Black. Her label’s design aesthetics/philosophy, is based on the idea that one should be able to wear an outfit on more than one occasion and style it with different pieces from their own wardrobe. Subtle and classy are two of her main style mantras.
