Rohit & Abhishek spell royal regalia at LFW
Mar '13
It was a collection that spelt royal regalia from the studios of Rohit and Abhishek Kamra when the male models strutted down the ramp for ‘Woven Gold’ - a non-profit organisation started in 2008 to promote Handloom and Khadi has been a successful venture for the duo.

Opening the show with a tantalising belly dancer, Colleena Shakti balancing a sword on her head, the scene was set for “an edge of seat” show of stylish men’s wear.

Rohit and Abhishek once again brought into sharp focus at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013, a men’s wear line called “The Urban Tribe” that recreated the stately look of Rajasthan.

The colours were earthy and rich, ideal for those hot summer months. Faded white, dusty beige, alloy grey, emerald, tidal blue and rustic red was given a touch of traditional craft with threads and metallic shreds.

Bringing in innovative textures, the collection was a great fusion of style and workmanship but with that contemporary twist added to it.

Textures were rich with weaves that were strong in colour and design. New style directions were the fringed hems for trousers and jackets or at times with rivets. Embroidery appeared for cuffs and hemlines of double vent jackets. A split black and white print jacket and patched trousers will make news on the fashion front.

Stud button closures at the calfs of trousers gave a fitted silhouette while printed lapels for jackets and pleated, patched, flap pockets were an addition to detailing directions.

The bandhgala, sherwanis and Jodhpuri jackets in the end glittered with metallic geometric appliqués which appeared on cuffs, collars, hemlines or fronts of the garments.

Waistcoats with or without lapels, were jaunty in appearance but the bundi remained sober with pockets. Shirts were basic but with placement prints and tab button closures were unique ideas for the simple Raja coat.

For that adventurous male who wants fashion that is created with an “out of the box” touch, Rohit and Abhishek Kamra’s “The Urban Tribe” collection will give him an edgy image.
