The showcase primarily consists of menswear with structured bandhgalas, bundis juxtaposing with swiftly draped kurtas, successfully creating a fantasy. The framed kurtas, constructed in finest skills, makes a statement with kaleidoscopic prints. Taking cues from military uniforms and armours, the bandhgalas and bundis are bold, made to feel powerful to the one who dons. Complementing the look is jewelled brooches, couture safas and graphic stoles. The longer sherwanis and shorter jackets can be paired with updated cowl trousers in a dhoti silhouette. Overall, the menswear lineup takes cues from historic warriors, heading to war or returning home triumphed.
