MANOVIRAJ KHOSLA
Runway Report
 

One of the most anticipated menswear shows at Lotus MakeUp India Fashion Week, Manoviraj Khosla SS20 stirred enthusiasm among editors, buyers and guests. The designer, whose personality is the spirit of his showings, combined bohemian, relaxed, grown-up and cultivated elegance with the utmost ease.

 

Looking down the long barrel of textile craft, Manoviraj put the values of craft and individual choice into luxury fashion, by combining kantha embroideries with animal print, metallic foil, denim and leather, cut with second-skin rigor. His commitment to making one-of-a-kind pieces is unwavering; in particular, the white and black bomber with kantha work, worn over white pants with zipper detailing, was what every man in the audience wished he was wearing—or had in his closet! Or the black asymmetrical kurta with zipper detailing worn with a black jacket and animal print pants. Or the black jacket with metallic detailing. Hey, you couldn't have found a man there who didn't want to be dressed like one of the models! The showing closed with Manoviraj Khosla receiving hearty appreciative applause for 'Jungle Metal'

 

My last thought as I walked out of his showing: this collection is ideal for men who love the relationship between luxury fashion and heritage textile craft. The designer's focus is on that core consumer, who is now demanding and harder to impress than ever.
