Designer Kunal Rawal unveiled his Winter/Festive 2019 collection ‘Confluence’ at the 20th edition of Lakme India Fashion Week.
Bollywood came out in force to support designer Kunal Rawal at Lakme India Fashion Week on 24th August, 2019. Titled Confluence, the Winter/Festive 2019 collection was exhibited on a runway designed by Amrita Mahal. The models were joined on the ramp by cricketer Hardik Pandya and actor Arjun Kapoor along with his cousin Jahaan Kapoor. Other celebrities who came for Kunal Rawal included Shahid and Mira Kapoor, Ananya Birla, Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor, Meezan Jaffery, Jacky Bhagnani and Aditya Seal.
Speaking about his new collection, Kunal Rawal said, “My festive collection this season takes me back to my love for grunge and rodeo. Titled Confluence, you will witness a clash of different worlds with hints of industrial grunge, rodeo and multifunctional outfits. Modern street wear and our Indian roots are brought together to offer diversity to the contemporary Indian man, who is looking for versatile outfits that they could multitask in. This time we are trying to take our concept a notch deeper with the fabric and garment construction. The collection comes to life with my favorite limited edition boAt x Kunal Rawal accessories…a must have for every KR man!”
Kunal Rawal Label is a contemporary luxury brand from India with unconventional and multi-functional designs. Rawal constantly reinvents the garment structures, and his sophisticated ethnic wear features French knots, appliquéing, pleating, metallic work, tonal palates and clever plays on textures.
The experimental design language continues in Kunal Rawal’s collection Confluence, which seems like a melting pot of rock and roll, grunge and military rodeo. The line features motifs like rocket rose, deconstructed silhouettes, playful cuts and patterns as well metal detailing. Many attires are decorated with digital prints, which are further enhanced with beautiful embroideries.
Kunal Rawal showcases the evergreen Bandhgala in a variety of options, interestingly even over shirts and kurtas. His sherwanis feature curved hemlines that cheat the silhouette and the layering of shirt, waistcoat, kurta and trousers. He has paired them with tight ankle length trousers and tailored bottoms and together they seem rather chic and trendy.
