Reflecting the winter mood
The designers at Louis Philippe have an eye for detail and this shows in every garment of theirs. The latest winter line has a collection of shirts, T-shirt and jackets that have been carefully designed to reflect the lifestyle of young men.

Going for the complete look

This collection from Louis Philippe has an   envious range of shirts and trousers along with accessories.

   Although  the brand is known for its formal segment,  they have an impressive range of casual wear as well.

   “The House of Louis Philippe has begun to cater to a large section of menswear after the addition of its sub-brands like LP and LP Jeans,” explains Karunesh Vohra, Creative Director, Louis Philippe.

   Each sub-brand has its own well-defined boundary. “So, where formal wear ends, sportswear begins and where sportswear ends, the denim line starts. We are very
careful in ensuring that the boundaries are not blurred,” he says.

A lot of time has been spent in designing the brand’s winter line.    “For us, winter wear is a growing category and a lot of care is taken when we design it. The collection is performance-driven and starts with an in-depth research on the latest trends and consumer requirements,” he explains.

Great attention is paid to create diversity in the latest line. Thanks to technology, people are aware of the what’s trending, in the fashion industry.

“Men are definitely choosy about what they want to buy,” says Karunesh.
“To them the cut, style and design are all equally important. They like to spend a
lot  on clothes. Men in particular wear clothes that suit their taste, mood and character,” he says  He also points out  that the accessories must be complemented with cardigans and light-weight jackets.

 “Winter ensembles are never complete without accessories like printed pocket squares, scarves, leather bracelets, fedora hats, sunglasses and watches,” says Karunesh.
