Manish Malhotra collaborates with car maker Nexa for debut men's suit collection
Top Indian designer Manish Malhotra will partner with Nexa the premium car outlet from Maruti Suzuki to introduce a new collection for the closing show of the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 edition on August 20 at the St Regis Hotel, Mumbai.
Manish Malhotra will enter bespoke menswear with the launch of a line of tuxedos and suits, for the season’s closing show. The collection will also include glamorous evening cocktail dresses for women.
The line of eveningwear for men and women draws inspiration from the Nexa colours of Black, White, and Chrome, in luxurious fabrics. The designer gave a sneak peak of his collection with a show at the St Regis Hotel, Mumbai with men dressed in Tuxedos and women in cocktail dresses.
Manish Malhotra in a statement said, “My closing show at Lakmé Fashion Week on 20th August will for the very first-time present bespoke suits for men. After a successful menswear show at LFW a few seasons ago, the new collection is a step forward through a renewed focus on the segment. The suits have been created using varied textiles and textures with a touch of glamour and spans evening-wear, club-wear and festive and occasion-wear. With this collection, we will also introduce a bespoke tailoring service at our stores in New Delhi and Mumbai."
Talking about the women’s collection, the designer said “For the women, the collection will have evening-wear and cocktail dresses in myriad fabrics, including handcrafted detailing and embroidery. Silhouettes like the stitched Sari and cape Kurtas in a colour palette including chrome, oyster grey and ivory lend a young, glamorous element to traditional festive attire. For the first time, we have also used black extensively in the collection. The collection accentuates the sensuality of the female form by using straight lines, flowy fabrics and low cuts in its construction," he added.
Nexa a premium car outlet was launched in 2015 with the aim to deliver unparalleled experiences to Indian customers, and has now grown to 262 showrooms across 154 cities in India.
