Fashion round up
Highs and lows of Van Heusen India Men’s Week.Updated: Sep 01, 2010 15:50 IST
Troy Costa made his debut show. His collection comprised of both very formal and informal outfits – smart jackets, dinner jackets, narrow trousers and shorts with smart detailing. Samant Chauhan, on the other hand, made his guys wear his favourite colours of beige and browns, with crushed looks on jackets and trousers.
What followed after, by designer brothers Shantanu and Nikhil, wasn’t really something that can be called ‘wearable.’ But, we all know that the duo dressed Big B in KBC2 and he looked dapper in it. Ashish Soni at the end of the day brought in a fantastic collection that showed tailoring at its best. The designer chose to sprinkle checks of all kind and colours across his suits and bandhgalas.
The second day of Van Heusen India Men’s Week also witnessed a riot of good stuff for men. ANKY by Anjana and Ankita Bhargav and their crisp, well engineered creations were high on glamour for men. They made it a point to show that one doesn’t have to be loud or outlandish to show that a designer is creative.
In Varun Bahl for Karan Johar, the collection that Varun designed for the event this time had almost every jacket that was longer in length. The designer has made it a point to incorporate innovation in his creations. Sketches of New York life in some, low crotch trousers and shorts, suits, jackets et al were stylish.
The biggest showman in the fashion business Rohit Bal’s scintillating presentation brought down the curtains of the second Van Heusen India Men’s Week at The Grand on Sunday evening. The designer, as always, made sure that it was worth the wait. Blending India with traces of contemporary feel, the collection had both Indian and western wear with shoes made specially for the show and colourful embroidery on velvet.
