Known for experimenting with his designs on various platforms, Bal has created the Zippo Windproof lighter collection with his trademark lotus design.
"I aimed to provide the Indian market with a unique accessory, but one that has mixed influences of both America and India. I have always believed in the spirit of Zippo and I thoroughly enjoyed designing a customized Zippo lighter," the designer said in a statement.
The collection reflects Zippo’s youthful and energetic values whilst combining them with Rohit Bal’s chic and fashionable style to create the ultimate lifetime fashion accessory, feels David B Warfel, director, global marketing, Zippo Manufacturing Company.
“Rohit is an esteemed fashion designer, not only in India but internationally. His designs are unique, which makes him a perfect fit to collaborate with Zippo as he personifies the energy and vibrancy of the brand,” said Warfel.
The lighter will be available at a price of Rs 3,999 at authorized Zippo retail outlets.
