Mumbai: After dressing women in India and around the world in their ultra-glam, glittering, couture creations, designers Falguni and Shane Peacock turned their creative design strokes on men’s wear, which they launched with great fanfare at a grand show during Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2018.
Actress Sonakshi Sinha started the show in a black embroidered jacket with fluid pants and a bralet; while beatboxers rocked on the ramp throughout the show and hip-hop dancers added some moves on the catwalk, to set the mood for the “Rebel” show.
The Louche collection, aimed at the millennial generation, was a power packed line. Playing with a mixed unconventional colour palette – light grey and pastel pink were parallel to blue, black and then went on a slight tangent to bruised charcoal for some masculine excitement.
The looks gave a variety of options to the most fastidious dressers.
There was a masculine sparkle for the high shine pompadours, but trousers turned skin-tight and leather jackets looked stylishly funky with a cool 70’s vibe. The silhouette was kept to one or two-button closures, two side vents, with ankle-length trousers, at times with white side stripes to add a sporty but formal touch.
Filmmaker Karan Johar confidently strutted down as a showstopper with great style in a silver/black glittering peacock embellished jacket with white side striped pants, waist coat and topped the look with silver hair.
