Generally when people talk about fashion, they talk about womenswear. But, isn’t fashion unisexual and an individual’s expression of himself as well as his own world-view? Fashion is an art and it is unlimited, hence why should any of us draw any limits on it? Men’s fashion is an untapped resource of creativity because of its innate nature of simplicity. Thus, one must break out of his comfort zone and really go the extra mile to experiment and explore other styles and trends.
Festivals generally require people to dress in an ethnic fashion. Men generally look more distinguished and extremely classy in traditional wear, do they not? It sculpts their body well and acts as a bout of freshness from the basic T-shirt and jeans. During the festival season, men generally look for designer kurta pyjama, designer sherwanis, or just a simple designer kurta.
Shahrukh Khan, the king of Bollywood himself loves to wear designer kurta pyjama. He pulls them off with grandeur and exquisite style. This particular teal blue designer silk kurta for men from Manish Malhotra festival collection, with quilted yoke and collar bears a close resemblance to his bold personality. It has been enhanced with gold naksi embroidered cuff. It accentuates his chest as well as his waist line, making the star look taller and handsome.
In fact, even Amitabh Bacchan, the Big B of Bollywood or ‘Shehenshah’, has been known to wear the classiest pieces when it comes to traditional wear. A memory that comes to mind when Big B overtly exhibited his delectable taste is when he wore a lucknowi sherwani by Manish Malhotra on the ramp for the charity event Mijwan Welfare Fashion Show in 2014.
Though the clothes donned by the Shehenshah change, his eccentric yet classy sense of style stays on the ramp. In 2010, during HDIL India Couture Week in 2010, Mr. Bacchan was seen walking the ramp in a Karan Johar and Rohit Bal kurta. This piece of pewter chamundi silk bandi from Rohit Bal festival collection, enhanced with machine embroidery will be a great option to get that Diwali look for men.
Traditional Indian clothes for men aren’t just limited to designer kurta pyjama and bandi. Something offbeat and downright fabulous, designer sherwanis are also a popular choice. They give a regal look with unparalleled grace to the wearer. This dori embroidered wedding sherwani with silver work is nothing but a pure work of art, with layers and layers of carefully arranged fabric. Sherwanis like this set the true standard of designer wear for men. It’s from Tarun Tahiliani festival collection, a designer who embodies his creations according to his interpretation of the modern Indian man, with help of cummerbunds, drapes and pleats.
If sherwanis are too formal for you, take a look at Nehru jackets. They add that extra oomph to a plain designerkurta pyjama set, making the whole outfit a sophisticated style statement. This particular navy blue, lime & pink rayon Nehru jacketfromVikram Bajaj festival collection gives the wearer a suave look.
