Speaking about this new collection, Mr. Manish Malhotra, said, “Linen is a fabric I have worked very rarely with, so when I was asked to style a range of the new fabrics with Linen Vogue, I was most excited. I wanted to travel through a diverse palette of prints & colors that oscillates between the old-world regalia and the modern repertoire. The alluring fabric of LinenVogue – La Classé is a symphonic harmony of various heterogeneous elements that span from staid classic to the edgy take of new-age appeal. They inspire a sense of reminiscence and reflect upon the transient nature of time in a range of new-age, dynamic and wayward selection of linen this season.”
