Hope you all enjoyed the Designs from the last feature on the Design House of Abraham & Thakore, this is as promised the Chapter Two from the same lookbook. Do catch the previous story on the link, http://thebaldeagle.in/2018/04/06/the-summer-monochrome-chapter-one-featuring-abraham-thakore/
The Designs are as always innovative and in this feature we are taking two of their Signature style Shirts. I have curated them with elements of my own wardrobe to achieve looks from the simple yet bold to the ethnic yet quirky!
The STRIPED Shirt
As always the focus with the brand is on pattern play and details which though simple can be dramatic. This amazing cotton shirt with the bold Black and White stripes is a winner must have in my opinion. The width of the stripes, their overall placement in the pattern of the layout is quite dramatic and definitely gets the eyeballs. The fabric is light and breezy and works wonderfully well for the hot summers . I also find this a great garment for travels and can be applied across many occasions. Brunches, parties, cruises ….the choices are endless of how this is such a great look. Teamed here for the full monochrome look is the classic fitted black jeans and a pair of white mules to seal the look. The dramatic large retro shades adds to the pattern play and I feel really gets it all going.
The ANGRAKHA Shirt
One of my favourite kurta styles if the everlasting vintage design of the Angrakha. Although their have been many historical versions across centuries but this is really a classic that never ceases to surprise. A&T as always has taken this style and converted it into a classic white mens short which have the overlaps and tassel ties which is the main accent detail. The Overlap of the construction is done meticulously and the fabric is a great Indian cotton that is weather perfect. The classic sizing pockets adds to the detail and makes it modern blending with the traditional. Styled here for a wedding look and creating the fusion of nations are these Drape Pants with Thailand motifs and bronze thread work which I purchased during my street market travels.
The muted opulence of the pants contrast well with the minimalism of the pure shirt and finally is set of with the Aladdin Mojris which completes the look. The tribal bead necklace and the jewellery brings in the ethnic fusion of these many statements. There is a detail in the following images of the shirt and the drape pants. Hope you enjoy them.
