You would never normally associate wool with summer, but times are quickly changing. Indian designers Rajesh Pratap Singh, Timothy Everest and SuketDhir recently came out with new collections demonstrating that wool could be the next big thing for summer trends
They recently participated at the Australian High Commission to launch their “cool wool” summer collections, addressed mainly to Indian summer.
They were supported by Stuart Mc Collough, from the Woolmark Company, who confirmed that deconstructing tailored apparel and is perfect for this kind of fabric, and the result also permits everybody to work during the hottest summer days in an excellent way.
While Timothy Everest, who is a London based designer famous for his collaborations with David Beckham and Tom Cruise, opted for coloured collars to brighten up his formal creations. SuketDhir went for more classic colours, such as blue, grey, brown and yellow, for his prints. These colours, that he called “dusty”, will be perfect for all skin tones whilst the prints have also been used in a strong global manner.
Finally Rajesh Pratap Singh went for colours such as navy, black, indigo and white, and was represented by the famous Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, who showcased a cloak and a black sherwani, both mainly in wool. His idea is to create something that can be worn in every season, thanks to the use of light 100% Merino wool.
We are still thinking to ourselves: brilliance or madness?
