At Mumbai’s Jio World Convention Centre on October 12, Lakme Fashion Week, in collaboration with the FDCI, began with online broadcasts on social media and the internet. The FDCI chose three up-and-coming brands to highlight this season in order to highlight emerging talent in menswear, starting with Countrymade.
In order to create a wearable yet nostalgic capsule wardrobe, Countrymade combined textured denim with knits and retro-inspired layering. Using a painterly interpretation of camouflage, bolder looks were created for tailored overcoats and matching sets.
Son of a Noble Additionally, Snob’s collection utilised neutral colours in an earthier, almost deconstructed manner. Long-top-over-trousers took a traditional Indian menswear silhouette and reimagined it for a global audience. Long-line, fluid blazers and loose trousers were printed with abstract lines.
Khanijo’s collection featured monochrome separates with geometric lines and cut-out segments for a more futuristic look. In order to add a casual element to the avant-garde ensembles, models styled their outfits with sneakers and applied black kajal to their eyes.
Several eco-friendly fashion initiatives, digital events, and design contests are part of the joint fashion week’s lineup for this season.
