Luxury in every stitch

Luxury in every stitch

The garments at Urbana reflect the perfect blend of craftsmanship and innovation. The formal line has a distinct design and style about itself. From fits and fabrics to cuffs and collars, ‘Urbana’ is unique.

The design team at ‘Urbana’ ensures that it keeps pace with the changing fashion sense of the modern man. The brand stocks a range of shirts, trousers, suits and ceremonial wear that ensure that customers are spoilt for choice. “Urbana thrives on innovative fabric finishes like ‘Nanontex’ (spill and wrinkle resistant), ‘3X Dry’ (repels water from the outside, absorbs moisture from the inside), ‘Durawhite’ (keeps the whiteness index intact, wash after wash), ‘Active Black’ (black stays black even after repeated washes) and ‘Anti-microbial finish’ (prevents bacterial growth in sweat prone areas),” explains Panchali Upadhaya, COO of the brand, adding that this
is what gives the brand that extra edge.

Talking about the collections this season, Panchali says that ‘Urbana Celestial Shirts’ — a range of ceremonial wear — is perfectly crafted from luxurious Egyptian cotton in structured fabrics in classic and jewel tones. The ‘Sartorial Collection’  is meticulously tailored and distinctively styled. The lineup includes the ‘Traveler Collection’, ‘Essentials’, ‘Belgium Linens’ and in the trouser category, there are anti-microbial trousers and super-crease trousers. Every shirt in the ‘Hall of Whites’ comes with a ‘Durawhite’ finish that keeps a white shirt dazzling, wash after wash. “The garments are stitched with Gutermann thread, which has got Mother of Pearl,” adds Panchali.  

For men who love to dress up, ‘Urbana’ offers an enviable range in formal shirts and suits. The colours too are distinct and stand out in terms of appeal. Panchali notes that
‘Urbana’ is always ready with something for the man who is discerning in his choice of apparel. “The brand offers a complete ensemble of suits, shirts, trousers and accessories that’s a true reflection of sartorial style and finesse,” she observes.
When it comes to accessories, the design team at Urbana feels that it’s always best to accessorise in keeping with the garment. The idea is never to overdo the styling at any point in time.
