When Samant Chauhan presents a men’s wear collection a lot of extreme creativity is at the base of the garments. For Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020 Samant’s men’s wear line inspired by the characteristics of NEXA was called “On The Road Again”.
Samant visualised an innovative look for the New Age man who is on the go and whose life is spent jetting around the globe for his high-powered career. At the same time, this successful head honcho ensures that his sartorial game is at the top of the fashion ladder.
Colours that appeared on the runway stayed true to black, and grey, while linear stripes and distinct fine checks added to the masculine appeal. Sharply cut tailoring was Samant’s fortè so the modified trench coats, some with wide floppy lapels or belted with slit pockets made strong style statements. Clean-cut jackets looked sharp when worn with stripes and checks giving the collection a very chic sophisticated sporty and young appeal.
Belts also appeared for travel jackets that sported giant patch pockets. Angular checked kurta/tunics were teamed with wide trousers sporting turn-ups, while the asymmetric tunics were layered with zippered bomber jackets. A striped trouser with contrast white turn-ups was an adventurous take on bottom wear, while zips at the ankles added a trendy touch to the trousers.
The curved hemline of a knee-length shirt gave a fashionable twist to the garment while detailing like epaulettes, contrast collars and piping, further added pizzazz to the collection.
For a show-stopping entry, it was the stylish and dapper star cricket Shikhar Dhawan who confidently strode down the ramp in an all-black trio of kurta, peak lapelled textured tuxedo jacket and trousers.
For the busy executive “On The Road Again,” Samant Chauhan’s collection will assist him in staying well dressed through his fast passed career. It was a great offering that represented what NEXA stands for – Reliable Innovative and Global
