Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna is a clothing brand from India, founded in 1997. They specialize in contemporary clothing for both men and women. Their craftsmanship puts a great emphasis on silhouettes and detailing. They draw inspiration from linear structures, geometrical lines and are greatly influenced by modern contemporary art.
The Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna woman is unperturbed by modern chaos, her soul is lured by minimalism.
Interestingly, their 2015 collection fashion paid homage to HBO’s addictive series, Game of Thrones. The designers have used the phrase ‘winter is coming’ in their collection.
This is what designer Rahul Khanna of Rohit + Rahul said about it: “Known as Early Frost, the collection is about the ice age, the frost colours when there’s no sun or the sky. It’s all about the dark ages, inspired from the Game of Thrones so you’ll see a lot of cape sleeves, leather and animal skin. The collection is all about sheer and sensuality for a woman. Women are ready to experiment with new cuts today. It’s like a peek-a-boo which is not at the right places. It’s sexy, constructed and strong.”
“It’s for a strong woman who has a mind of her own. The pieces are cleverly constructed and give you a sensual feel. It’s all about statement pieces that become a conversation starter. People have their own mind now and they want to wear something they can relate to.”
Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna draw inspiration from unique architectural forms, synonymous with metallic tones amalgamated with modern edgy elements. Their signature surface ornamentation, metallic embroideries, subtle muted hues and reticulated structures together create a perfect combination of mystery and glamour.
The designers have been awarded “Best Pret Collections” for Men’s and Women’s wear on numerous occasions. In addition to the main ready-to-wear line, the designers also branched into Couture and launched their first-ever Indian collection in 2018.
Apart from showcasing their work every season at the India Fashion Week, they also present their collections at several international trade fairs in Paris, New York, Singapore, London and many more.
