Ranbir Kapoor to walk for Manish Malhotra’s menswear show

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor will be the showstopper at ace designer Manish Malhotra’s first menswear show at the forthcoming Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 show.

The offsite show will take place at Mehboob Studio on August 26, closing the opening day of Lakmé Fashion Week.

On Monday, Malhotra organised a special preview of his collection ‘The Gentlemen’s Club’. The preview began with models walking out of Rolls-Royce, with Malhotra looking dapper himself.

On the collection, Malhotra said in a statement “The collection for Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive is for the debonair man – it’s stylish, cool and contemporary. It exudes sophisticated charm and is an extension of my couture line.

“In keeping with the season, ‘The Gentlemen’s Club’ collection is a festive fusion of Indian and western couture, focusing on shades of emerald green and adorned with botanical motifs. I am very happy to announce that Ranbir Kapoor will be walking for the show.

Malhotra shared that 2015 is a very special year for him.

“It marks 25 years as a costume designer and stylist in the movie industry, and a successful decade for my fashion label – Manish Malhotra. I’m very excited to showcase my first ever menswear show at Lakmé Fashion Week in association with Philips, which shares a similar passion for establishing individuality, with flair.”

“True style begins with an impeccably groomed man who just knows what looks good on him,” he added.
