Since its inception six years ago, Talking Threads has been a brand that celebrates fashion and culture with its intricate craftsmanship. From offering beautiful bridal outfits for all millennial brides to trailblazing reception dresses for men, Talking Threads is a brand you can rely on for your festive and wedding shopping woes. Inspired by traditions and imbibing trends of the modern world, the brand offers you customised pieces of luxury that you can cherish for life.
Founded by Pearl Uppal Kachru, Talking Threads boasts itself as an ethical and socially responsible design house that offers you stunning menswear, a variety of bridal lehengas, as well as outfits for pre-wedding festivities. In an exclusive conversation with the brand, we have explored the latest trends and ideas perfect to suit the millennial grooms who are currently on the lookout for out-of-the-box fashion choices.
Unconventional Groom Wear Colours for the Upcoming Wedding Season
While we have seen beautiful pastel sherwanis for day weddings, bold and bright colours are always chosen for glam wedding festivities at night. Pearl Uppal Kachru says, "It's more about choosing an unconventional hue of classic colour and going for striking colour pairings rather that steering away from the classic colour palette. For the wedding ceremony, ivory with touches of gold and light pink are classics that are always on trend. We are seeing pistachio, mint and lilacs becoming a favourite in pastels.”
“Deep reds and burgundy are also strong on the list. For the sangeet and cocktail, mysterious tones of blue and jewel tones of green are a hot pick among the bespoke pieces we are doing for grooms. For Haldi and Mehandi events, while yellows and greens remain a classic, we see pink and lilac pastels, as well as striking colour combinations like gold and blue, gold and plum, becoming a preferred choice.”
Trends, Embroideries and Fabrics for the Minimalistic Groom
The top trends for minimalist grooms that we have identified include tonal silk thread embroidered surfaces, micro-quilted and pin-tucked silks, light touches of gold and minimalist but sharp accessorising. The focus is always on how the fabric, embroidery and tailored details come together to create a look that effortlessly blends suave style with timeless heritage.
At WeddingWire India, we believe that fabrics are the soul of a garment and especially so for menswear, because of the experience it provides to the grooms as well as the sprinkle of embroideries that not only elevate the entire look but add a touch of royalty. As Kachru rightly added, "I would say silks for winter weddings and linens for summer are my forever favourites for the groom. Manipulation of fabric surface through hand-stitched details is a technique we strongly lean on. As for embroidery, tonal intricate embroidered details with touches of gold. While florals will be a mainstay, geometric will also play their part, and the fusion of the two makes for very interesting artwork."
Notable Trends in Grooms-wear Post Covid
Clearly, grooms are opting for flamboyance. They want to choose groom outfits that complement a red bridal lehenga beautifully, but the bride’s look is not dictating their sartorial choices. Couples are planning it together, and the groom wants to ensure his personal style comes through by adding little details that are close to their hearts. "At Talking Threads, refined opulence, restrained flamboyance and love for craftsmanship are the key codes for groom dressing", as explained by Kachru.

"Sonnet -18 is an ode to love that inspired this collection. Keeping alive the graceful and purist workmanship of our indigenous craftsmen, the collection echoes love poems from around the globe.
