A graduate in Business administration from European University and a postgraduate in Luxury Brand Management from Istituto Marangoni, London Riya V Kalra is the Co-Founder of Candyskin. She has a keen eye for detail and ensures all operations are carried out smoothly.


Having travelled extensively and experienced various brands across the globe, we developed a keenness in lingerie. Studying and understanding the lingerie market in India and comparing the same to the rest of the world we knew the design and style options in India were missing. India being a young economy, the lingerie industry operates in an unorganised where we saw the gap and therefore the need to create Candyskin!

For women, by women, Candyskin is an intimate apparel brand; creating sexy, comfortable, great fitting styles with an x-factor at affordable prices of international quality. Inspired by the international benchmark and global aspiration of lingerie ~ Victoria’s Secret ~ we stand for luxury, quality and comfort at its finest and wanted to create an Indian brand that Indian women can resonate with.

Our products are designed in-house by our creative team, keeping in mind the Indian style, body type, weather etc. After spending months on research and development we carefully curate and create fashion forward designs that are not in the market and the final product has the functionality and technology that has been created only by Candyskin. With the perfect fabric, each collection is made basis the season thus our products not only give the perfect fit, lift and comfort but also match the weather conditions. Each product goes through a step-by-step process from the beginning till the end.

The final designs are sampled and manufactured at the best of the best of factories based across India, China, Bangladesh and the lingerie capital Sri Lanka. Right from the tech packs, patterns, silhouettes and the end product, the manufacturing and back-end design techniques that are used are the same as all the top global players. Once the product is ready it goes through a fit trial and quality check before being launched into the market. Indian women have beautiful bodies and very different in terms of coverage likes and dislikes. Keeping all these aspects in mind, each of our collection is launched with 21+ sizes that are suitable for all ages and all body types.

We want to ensure that your Candyskin is not just innerwear for you, but it becomes your second skin. The perfect combination of trend and comfort, Candyskin lingerie not only gives you the oomph factor our products give you a 24 hour comfort making you feel comfortable in your own skin.

We aim for all Candyskin women to forget all their inhibitions and feel delicious every moment. Wear your own skin!
