Eye-catching tones of blue, orange, white, grey and black made their way down the catwalk as a representation of the turning of the season. These were further accentuated by abstract patterns, colour blocking and subtle texturing to give each piece a unique edge.
Structured forms were the highlights with sharp cuts and shoulder pads for a powerful masculine appeal and were crafted in decadent fabrics, which were viscose and cotton based.

The showstopper handsome Dino Morea walked down the ramp in an exquisitely tailored blazer and pants in textured black.
Bold and beautiful, Sahil Aneja’s artsy, cool collection aimed at men, “Wanderlust” was a mesmerising celebration of colour-meets-art and art-meets-fashion.
