As the festive season inches closer we caught up with Saif Ali Khan to know all about House of Pataudi and his festive wear favourite.
As you feel the nip in the air, you can safely say that the festive season is around the corner. From Durga puja to Diwali, leading to the wedding season, there’s a constant need to upgrade your closet with trendy Indian wear and accessories. With Diwali less than 10 days away, everyone's on the quest to find the perfect ensemble for all the festivities. Although the celebrations this year have been scaled down that doesn't mean you can't don your favourite outfit.
While we love the celebrations, along with it comes the unsaid pressure of putting your most stylish foot forward. House of Pataudi brings to you styles that blend contemporary design aesthetics with traditional wear while adding a royal touch, to give your ethnic wear wardrobe a much needed twist.
It was in 2018 that Saif Ali Khan along with his talent management firm, Exceed Entertainment, joined hands with Myntra to launch his eponymous label. Today, the brand houses not only apparel for men & women but also footwear for men and women, the most recent addition to the brand. A year after the brand launch, Soha Ali Khan was roped in to represent the womenswear collection.
Grandeur, modern panache, finesse, and timeless heritage describe the collection to perfection, and who better to represent this style of fashion than the Pataudi’s themselves.
"The soul of this brand is tied to the rich Pataudi heritage and legacy. The family’s royal finesse, which is rooted in Indian ethnic wear, is something that has traversed time and history to remain popular even today. The Pataudi's’ sartorial choices have always been very ethnic and traditional, and yet, were ahead of its time. Ethnic wear seems a natural extension
coming from the family, as Nawabs and Begums have always worn fine sherwanis, kurtas and shararas. The vision is to make ethnic wear a part of people’s everyday lives," adds Saif.
Through every item in the collections, the brand spells out the ideology that royalty is not just about lineage and heritage, but about understated elegance, effortless style, and sophistication.
The Nawab of bollywood is known for his majestic sense of style and the new collection of ensembles and footwear reflects the same. On speaking about the brand, he further added,
"A lot of my personal taste is reflected in the brand but we also have to maintain a fine balance between what I like and the requirement of our target audience. It is important to have a thorough understanding of the fashion choices of our target audience in order to curate House of Pataudi’s unique designs and styles. Drawing on my personal preferences and proud heritage makes every piece a reflection of Pataudis."

When it comes to Indian wear fashion for men, there's no one who looks better in a kurta set than Saif Ali Khan. With comfort being Saif's top priority all the styles seamlessly blend comfort and a high fashion quotient. But the icing on the cake are always the accessories, and the footwear that add the much-needed polish to every look. Here's a quick style tip by the nawab himself - "the kind of footwear can also make or break an Indian wear look," - and yes, we cannot agree more.
The versatile collection features pieces in pastel tones, vibrant hues and earthy tones, fitting everyone's festive wear needs. Sequins, beads and thread work are used as decorative elements to make your outfit sparkle. Exquisite fabric selection, ranging from satin to silk, and chanderi to brocade adds an old worldly royal charm.
The collection offers a plethora of Indian wear choices for men ranging from basic kurtas to lightly embellished kurtas, chikankari kurtas and statement-making nehru jackets. While garara sets, suit sets and lightly embellished kurtas compromise the women's wear collection. Accentuate your style game with the right kind of footwear, and don't forget to pair it with a matching face mask to ensure safety while enjoying the festivities.
