He says that the latest collection has some value additions to match everyone’s style. Vasanth says, “The striking collection has something for everyone and captures contemporary fashion while reflecting international quality and style.”

“In the men’s collection, leather jackets are a big hit this season. Women can choose from a wide variety of evergreen floral prints to Scottish tartan prints that create a perfect Winter look,” he adds.

The women’s collection witnesses a rich and moody trend that is made up of a variety of designs.

The ‘Tartan Takeover’ range comprises looks inspired from the Scottish Highlands with the classic Tartan Checks mixed with dark floral and animal prints and muted floral prints and digital treatment.

Tribal patterns and unique mixes of angular shapes and bright hues make the distinct print pop in ‘Winter Pop’ with layers of deep blues, cobalt, and purple creating a unified look.

The ‘Kilm Mart’ range has a handcrafted look by nature with design concepts to highlight folklore culture.

This season, florals are all about modernity with the ‘Wild Florals’, ‘Art Florals’ and ‘Floral Haze’ ranges, where monochrome and soft pastels are added to maintain the sophistication and elegance of this collection.

In the ethnic ‘Tavisha’ range, tradition has been complemented with modern techniques and print concepts.

The collection comprises designs varying from luxurious rich paisley prints to scarf-print inspirations, hand-work embellishments in gold lurex and bold tones that highlight the necklines, patch work techniques and a mix and match of prints.

The men’s collection, ranges from flat knits, light-weight and medium-weight sweaters, fleece tops, PU jackets and woven jackets with the right balance of fashion and commerciality
