As the most sought-after silhouette in menswear for the wedding season, renowned designers such as Raghavendra Rathore, Manish Malhotra, Kunal Rawal, JJ Valaya, among others, have given the traditional bandhgala a personal touch in their respective collections. In 2019, Raghavendra Rathore made an ode to the bandhgala and designed a collection around it. While the men’s collection offered bolder, modern and masculine lines, the women’s bandhgalas range featured a certain softness and understated opulence.

The distinct style of Raghavendra Rathore is derived from the old designs from the archives of traditional designs which draw inspiration from the Jodhpur Angrakha where the arm holes are cut distinctly compared to other brands.

The bandhgala Raghavendra Rathore jacket worn by Janhvi Kapoor was light as a feather which made it slippery to wear. The entire surface has been embellished with feather-inspired layers of embroidered organza and chiffon designs, creating dimension while maintaining the garment’s lightness. Pairing it with a skirt adds femininity while staying true to the spirit of what a Bandhgala stands for.

While the idea is to constantly evolve and have an array of offerings, the bandhgala according to Raghavendra Rathore sees new cuts with custom detailing each season. Drawing inspiration from safari, pageantry and sometimes the global citizen on the move, bandhgala has definitely come a long way.
