I first came across Lacquer Embassy on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their accessories. Perfected bow-ties in Summer hues and striking prints caught my eye and the love affair has been a constant since. But recently I happened to join a new PR firm and guess what?! The Lacquer Embassy store is right under my office!
So I cross the store every morning and evening crushing over whatever I can see through the glass windows. You have to know that Nikhil Sharma is the man behind this super cool brand and everything it stands for. Minimalism is what he loves and preaches and that reflects in everything that he has in the store. From beautifully crafted accessories to a suit which will make you feel that it was made for you.
Nikhil is by far one of the most elegant and handsome men I have come across and that is very well depicted in this clothes as well. The aesthetics are in-sync with the modern-day relaxed vibe, yet keeping the classic silhouettes and expert tailoring alive.
When I saw this particular navy suit, I knew that this is what I would like to shoot with. The diagonal white detail makes it extraordinary and gives it an edge over a basic blue suit. And Nikhil suggested the cutest airplane brooch to go with it. The best part about the suit is that it can be worn casually with a plain/printed t-shirt and a pair of sneakers (just the way I like it) or with a sleek white shirt, a tie or pocket square or both, and brown monk-strap shoes.
You always hear me talk about affordable luxury and that is exactly what Lacquer Embassy gives you. A suit like this would cost you somewhere in the range of 25-35k which is a very good investment for such a fine piece of clothes. Their accessories start at as low as 900 and they make for the perfect gifts!
