During the London menswear fashion week, I had the pleasure to discover ‘Advani’ Autumn Winter 2015 collection founded by Mr. Abhishek Advani at Annabel’s, the very elegant private club in Mayfair.

The young British designer creates a hybrid menswear wardrobe mixing the best of East and West inspired by the elegance of his grandfather, K.U. Advani.

In Post War high society from Bombay to London, Mr. K.U. Advani fused the core values of British tailoring and the ease of traditional Indian clothing to create his own nonchalant look. Mr. K.U. Advani was customer at Savile Row tailor, Kilgour French & Stanbury.

Designed in London and produced by tailoring workshops in Italy and England, the innovative Advani label is the result of Abhishek Advani’s desire to make beautiful tailored garments combining a sharp silhouette, contemporary vision and quality fabrics from Dormeuil or Vitale Barberis Canonico.

It was a tremendous pleasure to witness Mr. Advani’s vision of menswear and to discover his beautiful garments. I hope you enjoy these few photos from this delightful presentation!
