Lookbook - Lacquer Embassy
New brand Lacquer Embassy combines classic influences with modern culture, focusing on minimalist silhouettes and attention to detail. The label, designed by Mr Nikhil Sharma, fuses the relaxed elegance of youth with a sense of modern aesthetics.
Unpretentious, uncomplicated and gentlemanly the range of pocket squares and shirts are great pieces for the modern gents wardrobe, whether worn relaxed or for business.
The label was created out of the designer's desire to create, drawing on his influences from the world of travel and experiments in style. Nikhil also styles campaigns and also works as a freelance fashion consultant. Lacquer Embassy was launched in late 2013, with a collection of meticulously edited shirts and pocket squares, the images of which are presented in this post.
Explaining the inspiration behind the brand name, Nikhil says "Lacquer is a surface coating provided by a craftsman as a final finishing touch. It resonates with the words 'polished' & 'finished'. The word 'embassy' denotes a space that contains what I love the most: a menagerie of my creations, accouterments and thoughts, all brought together in a single institution. This space is here to make you part of my 'universe'".
The brand is already gaining international recognition and renowned for the brilliant use of colour and fantastic attention to detail.
