With the monsoons right upon us, it’s time to celebrate a break from the scorching heat, and the much-needed drop in temperature. Though one might be in complete awe whilst marveling at the monsoons from the window, but it lasts only till you don’t have to step out of the house. Arriving somewhere soaking wet is not a very pleasing sight and not to mention, the rainy season is the trickiest when it comes to dressing and looking stylish.
Pick the right look:
Here’s what exactly one can do to look dapper in the downpour. Opting for waterproof outerwear which is functional and smart will be a blessing indeed. A Navy Rain-Proof overcoat with minute design detailing will help you withstand nature’s surprise with ease and look absolutely chic at the same time. In the past, we have crafted a burgundy waterproof overcoat that is made entirely from a water repellent fabric by Zegna. That is another option that will ensure that your moment of reverie isn’t interrupted by the nip in the air, while adding an air of sophistication to your attire.
Make room for colorful fabrics:
What better way to content with the dull hues than to make room for bright colors and bold prints. Vibrant and happy hues of red, blue, tan and mustard will be ideal to beat the gloomy weather. They will not only be a contrast against rainy days, but can also be carried easily.
Pick lightweight fabrics:
Using lightweight fabrics can be beneficial as they dry easily and won’t cling to your body. As for the formal attire, one must be careful with fabric selection during the monsoons since most fabrics cannot withstand severe downpour. During this time, we recommend our range of Super 135s Australian Merino Wool with a small yet necessary percentage of spandex. The cloth has an added benefit of a special nano finish that makes it water repellent and stain resistant. Another such fabric is a cotton twill.
Preparing for the indoors:
Once you are indoors, the overcoat comes off and it’s all about making a statement underneath the rain-proof overcoat, our collaborative collection with Carlo Barbera is an effective choice.The Super 140s fabric makes the suit smoother, lighter and more functional. It’s great for men who shy away from wearing bold and bright prints as Sarah and Sandeep have used their design expertise in crafting one-of-a-kind pattern on pattern ensembles for the contemporary businessman. Some of the patterns used for the collection are Prince of Wales Plaid, Glen-Checks, Windowpane Checks and Pin-Stripe, and the collection is available in the form of suits, blazers and overcoats.
All these details makes the collection a great choice to don in the monsoons as it shows that fashion does not have to take a back seat this rainy season.
