Standing apart

Day 2 of Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights at Grand Hyatt saw Rajesh Pratap Singh showcasing his autumn/winter collection that combined the modern with the traditional in an understated design aesthetic.
Drawing inspiration from his Indian roots to craft artisanal garments that stand apart, the line was built with fabrics woven on vintage handlooms with faultlessly clean lines, careful detailing and international silhouettes. Giving the presentation a global appeal yet keeping it passionately Indian, woven stainless steel and copper wires in satin weaves, asymmetric checks and stripes in natural indigo dyed gingham and window pane checks in wool ikats were used.
On view were draped tunics that replaced the classic men’s shirts, androgynous oversized women’s suits and jackets in woven metal. Also, convertible lapels and asymmetry was applied freely to all the classic Indian silhouettes.
