“It was a great opportunity to be a part of Lakmé Fashion Week and this season my collection is called ‘Street Alpha’ – it Alpha is engineered for people who seek comfort, utility and fun while going through their daily routine. As a part of my collection you will also witness a series of looks inspired by the iconic Johnnie Walker. Through this collaboration, I aim to bring alive the striding man through our street aesthetic and modern approach toward tailoring combing the conventional with contemporary in total harmony. It’s my utmost pleasure to design this collection for Johnnie walker the journey and I am really looking forward to the show.”
Making the Street-smart wearer his prime buyer who opts for street culture despite societal restrictions, the outfits were geared for comfort, utility and large doses of fun. Working with an assortment of fabrics like suede, polyester mesh, French terry, jersey, cotton and parachute, Abhishek ensured that the colour card was vibrant and full of excitement. Striking long line Tees, cool hoodies, some relaxed sweat shirts and bombers gave a laid back vibe to the men’s and women’s wear offering.
The label had fun colours, prints and silhouettes that will hit the racks every quarter. Detailing like quilted patch pockets and zippers appeared in a combo of parachute and leather. Zippered jackets were worn with denim cargos with ribbed ankle accents.
Women’s wear followed the masculine style directions as zippered long-sleeved shifts were accentuated with parachute yoke, sweat shirts had zipper pockets and the drawstring hem line was eye-catching.
