Lakme Fashion Week (LFW), over the last few seasons, has devoted a day in the middle for designers to showcase their offering to men. On Sunday the highlight of the day was the collection presented by Lecoanet Hemant. It screamed style all the way through with the designers unveiling tetron ‘bullet proof jackets’, gathered jackets, grey pow wool slim fit trousers, large trousers and impeccably tailored suits.
Troy Costa, as always, came out with a collection of well made men’s clothing including matt weave linen suits, ivory shawl lapel jackets, distressed denim pants and cotton velvet jackets. Digvijay Singh’s asymmetric shirts and Patiala salwars and wrap around kurtas with slit sleeves bore his signature style, while Sanjay Hingu brought in an element of patriotism through prints of Nehru and Gandhi in his shirts and jackets. Rohit and Abhishek had Jodhpuri pants and jackets in short lengths in cotton and linen.
Krishna Mehta brought in somewhat a sense of sheen all through her collection for her men and made sure that it suited them. Young Kunal Rawal had some very interesting jackets in his collection. I wasn’t very happy seeing Rocky S jackets. While most looked as though they could have finished and fitted better, especially at the hem, one in particular looked uneven in between the two back vents.
Also, he made his men walk in two-buttons, either both fastened or some with only the last button (and not the first) fastened. Now that looked different!
