Satya Paul Ushers In A New Era With Rajesh Pratap Singh As Creative Director
You can expect nothing short of a sartorial transformation when an iconic label epitomized by prints teams up with a veteran designer who understands design and construction like no one else. Therefore, Rajesh Pratap Singh’s appointment as Satya Paul’s new creative director has sent a wave of excitement across the industry.
Deep-diving into his design language, you’ll find that Rajesh Pratap Singh combines the modern with the traditional with an understated aesthetics which is why his clothes always have a global appeal, yet remain passionately Indian – a quality that he shares with the house of Satya Paul. But, his connection with the label goes back to nearly 30 years ago when he was a student at NIFT and Mr. Satvinder Paul Nanda (Founder, Satya Paul) sponsored his final collection. And as he takes the reigns of the label in his hand, Singh adds, “I have great respect for the brand’s heritage and creative integrity. And I’m particularly excited for the potential of this brand. We will look for references in its archives and history, drawing parallels to modernity.”
Pratap’s first collection for the brand weaves the story of a man through an urban jungle with men’s shirts crafted in varied colours, prints, and fabrics. As an ode to the tropical jungle, the elements of the forest (birds, merry monkeys, and palms) form a mainstay in this fun and quirky collection. And this menswear shirt collection is already available on their website to shop and add some refined polish to your wardrobe.
So, are you ready to take a journey into the lyrical world of colour, art, and prints? Well, we sure are!
