There are not many brands which come into the market which change the genre for Men’s wedding wear. Indian garments redefined in luxury are, celebrating a new set of stars Arun Ahuja and John Marya for the brand Mehraab. I have had the privilege of knowing both these designers as friends and their rise to fame in the short time is a clear indication of their trail blazing designs and revolutionary style statements . The idea of couture and breaking traditions is a clear foundation of their work and what also sets them apart. In my set of chapters , where I have selected two of their garments; are mainly in celebrating Summer styles for Indian Weddings. Cottons, embroidery and linens and their trademark silhouettes are clearly an indication of how even in the simplest of textiles one can find a royal celebration. This is Set 1.
Captured well in her article Jasmeen Duggal on her popular style blog covers the essence of the brand and the designers behind it.

Featured in this story, a choice from their latest collection of Linen Kurtas specially focused on the season. The great summer fabric, bold design intent, the choice of the blue and white is a classic that cannot go wrong for your special events . The details are quite amazing in the play of stitch-work which overlaps the pattern textile and has minute mirrors embedded within it which catches the light quite beautifully. As a combination I have not seen this approach before in a male garment and the work is also combined in signature palazzo pants which is teamed in this overall ensemble.
The Mehraab Palazzo/ Harem pants are now amongst the hottest pajama trends in the Men’s look-book this season. Seen before only in women clothing, it has taken cues from royal fashion of the yesteryear and been reinterpreted for us men. They are available in a variety of styles and looks with each ensemble and as you can see in this image the details are quite a couture statement. The attention to detail and finishing is eye catching in their work. Regardless of the ensemble, there is a series of these designs available which are quite the royal statement. Do catch their links on social media and see the many varied expressions of this style.
As always my love for traditional Indian jewellery in Polki Diamonds and Silver, combined in this style statement are seen in the collections from Baisa Pushpita Singh for Royal Fables and Ameythyst by Rahul Popli. The designs from Mehraab are worth following and having and if you are looking to make that special statement this season , you need to visit them and have their collection in your wardrobe gentleman.
