What I Wore: Lakmé Fahion Week Winter/Festive 16

     So it was that time of the year when people usually bring their A-game in fashion. But for me it was that time when I usually sit and wonder ‘What do I wear?’ And even though I had played it safe at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort ’16, I had set a standard for myself by making a mark as a well dressed, emerging menswear blogger. So to a certain extent, I had that, to live up to.

     Lucky for me, I managed to step it up a notch with the help of some really good designers, some of which are friends, who were kind enough to let me wear their garments for Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive ’16.

     So without further a do, let me take you through the outfits that I had assembled for the 5 days of Fashion week.

Day 1: Look1

     Okay this one was super special for me, because the designer that I got to wear has never collaborated with any blogger, plus his work is an absolute genius! I wore a bright orange denim style jacket with a mind pocket by Piyush Dedhia. Teamed it up with a grey T-shirt, blue denim joggers and teal lace up plimsolls. I really wanted the jacket to shine through, so I kept the rest if the outfit quite minimal.

Day 1: Look 2

     So since it was a Winter/Festive Fashion week, I decided to go for a really subtle yet sophisticated look for the evening. I had actually shit with this look for a blog post, which will be up real soon. During my recent Delhi trip, I had met and collaborated with this amazing bespoke designer, Jas Hora who owns Studio JSH B’spoke. He was kind enough to make this absolutely beautiful olive double breasted jacket for me, and I was like I have got to wear this at Fashion week and it went so well with the vibe out there! I paired it with a grey button down shirt, brown window check trousers, Oxford inspired black formal shoes and a metallic wrist watch. Simple and on point!

Day 2: Look 1

     This year at Lakmé, the theme was Illuminate and Shine. And trust me I had no clue about it while assembling this next outfit. I went for an all black outfit with a lot if bling! So basically it’s a DIY piece I had made a while back. Nothing too great, just 1050 safety pins that I out on a solid black crew neck T-shirt. And it’s heavy and feels like an armor and tha’t’s what I loved about it the most! I wore it with black joggers, a pair of black lace up plimsolls, a black longline hooded open cardigan, grey reflective sunnies, a metallic wrist watch and metallic rings.

Day 2: Look 2

     So ace designer Kallol Datta was to showcase his collection after a while, so I was really excited and I really wanted to have like a Kallol element going on. I wore a red, sort of a crossover, between the Indian traditional Patiala pants and the Harem pants that have a really unique and quirky motif going on. I styled it with a simple solid white crew next T-shirt, a blue and grey dual tone sport coat, grey plimsolls and a gold chain and a pair or wooden wayfarer sunglasses. And the highlight for me was when I met Kallol and he told me that he liked the way I had put together the outfit!!!

     Again super excited for this one, because it’s Piyush Dedhia. A mint denim style jacket with a hot pink patch! I teamed it up with a solid white crew neck T-shirt, navy corduroys and a pair of white lace up plimsoll. To complete the look, a pair of wayfarer sunglasses, a simple dog tag, a wrist watch and a hot pink and bronze bicycle badge!

Day 3: Look 2

     Evening again I wanted to go for some layering. Something that looks great and is super comfortable. So thanks to Anas Wahab I found something that looked super amazing, was evening appropriate, effortlessly stylish and it didn’t even feel like I had worn layers! It was that might an breathable! This piece was a grey open airport jacket with an interesting lapel which I haven’t come across yet. Loved the fit, loved the fabric, loved the structure. I teamed it with a blue in white micro print shirt, a pair of denims and cobalt blue lace up plimsolls.

The piece has a lovely cut out alphabet detailing on the sleeves and on the back,well take a look for yourself! I teamed it up with cherry red chinos, a black longline kurta T-shirt , a pair of denim shoes. Grey reflective sunnies, dogtags for a lil bling!

Day 5:

     By day 5 I was really exhausted ( sorry I’m cribbing) and I really wanted to wear something absolutely comfortable and easy going. It really didn’t matter that compared to the previous outfits I would be drastically dressing down. But I did get a good response for this one too! Or may be people were just being sweet! So I wore a black T-shirt with an all over star print and bold Japanese letters, a pair of black joggers , a pair of cobalt blue shoes, wayfarer sunglasses, a wrist watch, and that’s it! Comfortable, sporty, and apparently still on point!
