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.

Waist Coats – Not just for the old anymore!

There used to be a time when waistcoats were considered more of a middle-aged and older men attire but gone are those days thanks to a bunch of fashion-forward menswear brands who have managed to push the trend into younger lot. More and more fashion enthusiasts are sporting the waistcoat look now and looking better than ever.

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.

Best of PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week

Menswear was at its full glory at the recently concluded PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week and that is thanks to two brands, Bareeze Man and Republic by Omar Farooq. They set new benchmarks, presented fresh fashion and upped the style ante quite a few notches. Apart from the two, there were selective glimpses of menswear brilliance from other brands noticeably Sania Maskatiya and Arsalan Iqbal.

Here’s a look at some of the trends on the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week runway that stood out. While there were many looks that I loved, there’s always a few trends that you can borrow from the runway and apply them to your everyday dressing.

Here is a list of what I absolutely loved at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, 2014.

Eid kurtas for men – Spoiled for choices

Eid is definitely one of the most profitable season for the fashion industry. it is one season where every one goes out of their way to make new clothes regardless of their social status and buying power.

    For men, kurta is the de facto dress code for eid day and such is the lure of the kurta market that even womenswear designers jump into the kurta game on eid, Nomi Ansari is one example.

Style Supplement takes a look at some of the best menswear kurtas out there in the market right now. While the market is filled with choices from high street brands to designer labels, there are few worth a mention. Let’s take a look.

One of the issue with Eid designer kurta parade is that designers put way too much emphasis on colour and embroidery. Eid might be a festive occasion but this is no excuse for looking like a box of mithai.

When it comes to kurtas, I personally prefer light colours and minimal additions. Khaadi and Junaid Jamshed are the best go to options when it comes to simple looking kurats, elegant and fuss free.

As I said simple and fuss free and price range is very competitive. Last one is my favourite, got this one for Eid for myself.

Another name that comes to mind when talking about simple, elegant kurta sans embroider and OTT colours is Fahad Hussayn.

As for those who prefer the colourful embroided kind, Nomi Ansari’s kurtas have stood out to be the best so far in my opinion.

Republic by Omar Farooq has also stepped into the kurta territory but honestly speaking his kurtas are simply gaudy and loud. he should stick to what he knows best i.e. western wear.

So options are plenty and it just comes down to what’s your personal style whether you prefer colourful and festive looking kurtas or you go for more subliminal options. Happy shopping!!
