Unveiling the collection at the Australian High Commission in New Delhi, fashion designers Rajesh Pratap Singh, Timothy Everest and Suket Dhir each showcased an exclusive line of Cool Wool garments designed especially for Indian summers, with Bollywood celebrity Neil Nitin Muskesh walking the runway to show-off wool’s trans-seasonal benefits.

“As always, it was a pleasure to work with The Woolmark Company and Raymond,” said Singh after the show. “Their impressive collaboration in R&D has resulted in the birth of this versatile and lightweight fabric, which I’m sure will find its way into the wardrobes across the world.“

Raymond’s spring/summer collection comprises formal and ready-to-wear menswear apparel made from premium fabrics with latest designs. Inspired by unconventional colours, the collection utilises innovations such as a Linen Wool Silk blend and an enriched Wool Silk range that integrates formal attire with leisure. These specially handpicked fabrics of 5 different blends offers a wide variety of fabrics ranging from Wool Silk, Super 180s, Super 150s, Super 130s and Super 120s. 

“Raymond is amongst the largest manufacturers and ‘best-in-class’ designers of woollen fabrics in the world,” explains Raymond CEO - Lifestyle Business, Sanjay Behl.

“Product innovation has been at the forefront of Raymond and we are delighted to launch our new range of premium woollen fabrics in India. The launch of this exclusive collection reinforces our commitment to offer the very best product to our esteemed customers.”

Following on from last year’s success of creating a Cool Wool collection in association with The Woolmark Company, this latest spring/summer collection is crafted from superfine Merino wool that is known for its natural breathability and thermal management properties, keeping you cool during summers.

Australia supplies around 50% of the wool used in India’s fashion and textile sector.

“We are proud of this collaboration between Australian woolgrowers, an iconic part of our farming sector, and contemporary fashion, one of most dynamic and exciting sectors in both India and Australia,” said the Australian high Commissioner to India Patrick Suckling.

“The launch of this latest collection by Raymond was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the best of Indian fashion using the finest quality Australian Merino wool.”
