Photo essay-The New Indian Men

What I notice in terms of indian men’s fashion is how dramatic it has became over the past two years. Love how designers are pushing the boundaries whether it is about the new tones of colors, model castings for runway or innovative styling ideas. Something really interesting is happening on the runway & streets of India. Whether it is the new & young breed of indian designers in men’s clothing or models with strong personalities on the catwalk, menswear is definitely shaping into something unique & stylish, like never before. So here is a small photo essay compiling the pictures I took at the major fashion weeks of India as well as the fashion on the streets in last two years which visually defines how menswear has witnessed a drastic change. I feel it is the new era. Don’t you? Please mention your unfiltered thoughts on the comment section below.

Men in distress. Designer Arjun Saluja completely shocked me with this presentation, I was happy that I was able to capture the models so closely, it was kind of an exhibition which gave media a closer look at the clothes & details. Also the casting for this show was done artistically as every model looked poles apart from each other with individual personalities & at the same time all in distress.

Dhruv Vaish‘s new collection at Lakme Fashion Week was definitely breathe of fresh air as he provided multiple options for men, love the colors, cuts & layering.

Whether it was print on print or the high waisted dhoti pants, it was hard to ignore this collection which was subtle as well as unique at the same time.

This was by far one of my favorite show at this season of Lakme Fashion Week. Look at the models castings for this show, which includes people of all body types & more importantly  so different from each other.

Men donning fake eyelashes & dramatic head gears, designer Shilpa Chavan definitely broke the gender barriers. Also you can notice a hint of feminine floral lace in the headgear.

I won’t call this androgyny, as men in kilt is very manly (check the great history of this iconic piece which stretches to 16th century). Supermodel Namit Khanna in Manish Bansal‘s Summer/Resort 15 collection at Lakme Fashion Week.

When it comes to mixing tradition, culture & fashion, Ashish, Viral & Vikrant always impresses with their distinctive take on style & fashion. Yes!! gone are the days when the occasional wear fo men was made in just 5 to 6 metres of fabric, the creations above show how grand Men’s fashion can be when it is about India.

Prominent new faces on the runway as seen in last two years were Saud Khan & Saagar Gera. Designer-Divyam Mehta

People say every men is donning beard these days,umm maybe but look at these two men so different & stylish. Pranav Guglani (left) of Cord.in was seen wearing interesting optical art shirt paired up with all pastels while in Mumbai, blogger Al Claudius (right) was seen beating the summer heat in designer Manish Bansal‘s T-shirt, so if you think men can’t carry bling, than you might have to reconsider your statement.
