For instance, the Jodhpur one has more of navy blue, indigo and white while the Kota one has more of crimson and yellow. The fabrics are easy to breathe and breezy, predominantly made of crêpe. Silhouettes include bohemian tops, kurtas, straight cut tops and palazzo pants. “We are known for our art work. The present collection is royal, majestic and not over the top. Adding on to it, the European touch to colours makes it all the more beautiful,” says Rajdeep.The designer is currently working on his latest Autumn-winter collection Versailles, inspired by the French palace. It will be launched by the end of this month. `6,500 onwards. Details: rajdeepranawat.com
