Fawad Khan for Republic Fall/Winter 2014

Fawad Khan is the flavour of the month. He’s been everywhere not that I am complaining. No one is enjoying fashion world’s infatuation with Fawad Khan as much as I am. (Exhibit A)

So when recently images from Republic’s latest shoot featuring Fawad Khan came out, I couldn’t be more excited. Fawad Khan and Republic by Omar Farooq go quite a way back. (Exhibit B) Omar signed Fawad on as Reublic’s brand ambassador somewhere around at the start of this year. They weren’t able to shoot anything since Fawad was busy in India with shooting and promotion of his Bollywood flick ‘Khoobsurat’.

They have finally come out with a spread shot by amazingly talented Abdullah Haris. This spread features pieces from Republic’s Woolmark Show collection.

Republic by Omar Farooq Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign

Republic Spring/Summer 2014 campaign is out and it’s all about summertime suiting staples.

The campaign is shot brilliantly by Abdullah Haris who has always done justice to Republic campaigns catching the rugged, coarse undertones of Omer Farooq’s pieces brilliantly with his lens and this campaign is no exception.

It features pieces from Omar Farooq’s latest offering i.e. Spring/Summer 2014 collection that he showed at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week two weeks ago.

While everything looks super sharp, my favourite pieces have to be the purple windowpane check suit, knitted ties and the lapel pins.

Feast on the brilliant images from the campaign and let me know what you think of it.

Abdullah Haris’s latest artistic endeavour

  My love for Abdullah Haris’s work knows no bounds. That man is an artist in the truest sense. Never seen him compromising on his aesthetics, he always does things his way whether its a simple product shoot or a OTT editorial. (Exhibit One)

    When it comes to fashion photography I always like it whimsical and sartorial. It always shows when the photographers bring creativity and a twist into their work. Abdullah Haris is definitely the name that comes to mind when it comes to doing things unconventionally. Came across this shoot by Abdullah Haris recently on Facebook. Its for a designer named Saira Shakira. Never heard or seen this designer before but its amazing what Abdullah has done with it.

  The shoot plays on contemporary glamour with a pinch of pop culture references thrown in. My favourite look is the Look no. 4 ‘Paparazzi’ shot. Facial expressions, lighting, tagline; everything going on in that shot is perfection. Have a look at the shoot:

Republic Winter 2012/13 Ad campaign by Abdullah Haris

   Omar Farooq is an artist as every fashion designer should be but onslaught of commercialization has smudged the art in fashion to some extent and most of Pakistani designers are still struggling to strike a balance. But Omar Farooq – Creative Director of Republic – is one man who has held on to his creative guns and never let go of his peculiar touch.

        Republic’s Winter Ad campaign is a testimony to that. Collaborating with another artist par excellence – photographer Abdullah Haris – Fall/Winter 2012/13 Ad campaign is a visual delight. Campaign depicts a strong undercurrent of agony, anguish and distress thorughout the images. A lot of menswear designers from Munib Nawaz to Ismail Farid have tried their hands at this insurgent, rebellious meets revolutionary theme with their work but nobody has excelled in it like Omar Farooq.

   Republic man is strong yet socially conscious and brutalities of world and injustices of the society bothers him and leaves him afflicted and tormented from inside.
