Raghavendra Rathore to host three-day pop-up in Qatar

New Delhi, Dec 27 : Designer Raghavendra Rathore will host a three-day pop-up of Indian menswear starting on January 5 at Shop Qatar, a shopping festival in Doha.

Known for bringing the classic bandhgala back into men's wardrobes, the designer will present his eponymous label at the pop-up, said a statement.

His special capsule collection features kurtas, jodhpuri bandhgala jackets, breeches, festive sherwanis, embroidered achkans and waistcoats, alongside accessories such as custom buttons, cufflinks, pocket squares and neck scarves. Handcrafted immaculately, using the finest heritage textiles in silks and brocades, the collection exudes elegance and royalty.

"We're looking forward to showcasing everything classic that the brand has to offer with just the right amount of contemporary and transitional outfits. The clients here have a similar sartorial aesthetic to us Indians, when it comes to special occasions and festivals.

"The beauty of the bandhgala is that it is a versatile garment with its inherent lineage of Indian heritage. The bandhgala has the ability to fit into any gentleman's wardrobe and what also makes it interesting is that it can be worn differently, in different parts of the world - with breeches, or with denims," said Rathore in a statement.

The designer-led brand already serves a global clientele including people from Singapore, UK, Middle East and India.
