Monica Shah, Founder of JADE Man, says, "When I embarked on this journey to create menswear, I wanted to reinterpret the formal aesthetic of the tailoring universe with emblematic pieces like the bandhgalas and sherwanis. Moreover, I wanted to express Jade's exceptional savoir faire so each ensemble is an ode to the art of detail. True to the Jade spirit, I wanted each piece to adapt easily to any occasion or season."
With this first menswear outing, Monica & Karishma explore and expound the possibilities of new designs, methodologies and creations in menswear. JADE has utilized its expertise in Ek Taar and Kasab techniques to create highly detailed womenswear.
