London is a city that welcomes ‘the fresh, bold and daring’, says designer Kaushal Niraula commenting on the choice to launch his brand in the British capital during LC:M. Presenting a collection which combines classical cuts and shapes with bold colours and details, we could not agree more with his decision.
The showcase, held at the May Fair Hotel in central London, featured AW13 pieces as well as the new Spring/Summer collection, a mix of eclectic cultural references and traditional tailoring that reflects the designer multi-cultural background and experiences. Alongside the more classical and conservative suits, realised in gray, navy and checked wools and cashmere, Niraula presented a range of more daring pieces in unusual colours and materials, which gave an interesting spin to the collection. Velvet blazers and silk jackets were tinted with bold and vibrant colours such as green, pink and light blue while a subtle detail in pink fuchsia flashed under cuffs, collars and lapels.
The ambivalent character of the collections is also reflected in the brand double approach to dressing, offering ready-to-wear, available at KaushalNiraula.com, as well as a private order service for the most exclusive pieces.
