RKZ x SARAN KOHLI
The aim was simple: to create a collection of suits that bridged the gap between East and West. Embracing the prints and fabrics of India, with tailoring inspired by Savile Row.
Being an absolute creative stereotype (and rather proud of it), my wardrobe was pretty much black and grey, with focus on cut and tailoring. Whether it's street style or sartorial, the idea of a perfect fit is something I've grown obsessed over. However, my Indian wardrobe was the polar opposite by way of colour and style. I wanted to bring it all together.
I very much believe no man can look bad in a well-tailored Indian suit, and I feel like an absolute baller whenever I wear one. Exhibit A:
Working with prominent designer Saran Kohli, we designed the first suit (see below) using Indian fabrics and prints, coupled with traditional Western tailoring.
