NEW DELHI — Indian designer Tarun Tahiliani has teamed with Savile Row tailor Whitcomb & Shaftesbury to bring a new dimension to high-end men’s wear — traditional sherwanis and bandhgalas updated with modern styling.
“The modern man is more fitness conscious, he wants his clothes to fit as well,” said Tahiliani. “Also, formalwear for men often has embroidery and with embroidery, the outfit loses a lot of the give,” he explained, adding that the collaboration will bring outfits that are essentially plain, and cut so that they feel like “a skin on your body.”
