Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh, India’s first brand ambassador for The Woolmark Company, has a new invention. A white biker jacket with front zippers and circular pockets. But it's a jacket for summer, it's made from wool and here's how it works.
Constructed inCool Wool, an ultra-lightweight Merino wool whose fibre 'breathes' in a unique way to channel moisture away from your body and effectively insulates you against temperature extremes, Pratap's new white wool jacket keeps you protected and ventilated at the same time making it perfect for sunny, air-conditioned offices and cool cab rides.
"The current generation is looking for the complete package in their wardrobes -- chic, classy and practical. My creation is the perfect summer jacket," says Pratap. "It's amazing to see how versatile wool can be as a fabric; it really excites me, the more I work with it."
The fabric is naturally elastic as well, reducing the jacket's tendency to crease and or become baggy, which is a plus. Summer whites are nice when they're crisp.
The Pratap Cool Wool Jacket for Rs 16,950, available made-to-order across all Rajesh Pratap Singh outlets in India.
