Sahil Aneja, a bespoke men’s wear designer, has carved a niche for himself by reinventing fashion norms for Indian men. His collection ‘Restricted 2.0’, showcased at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 was what the modern Indian dresser needs for the coming season.
The designer presented a minimal, chic line influenced by street signs that were intelligently projected on the garments. The ensembles varied from classic suits to well-tailored outfits. Jackets, leather vests with metallic zipper detailing, over-coats and long shirts with cowls had slogans printed creatively. This complete package of creativity definitely upgraded the style quotient of this collection.
Interesting fabrics such as flannel, leather, felt wool and knits were used to create variations with textures to show a different dimension. Charcoal black, smoke grey, maroon, olive and mint green, scarlet and violet created the perfect palette that blended instantly with the modernized theme and made it an instant success. The audacious silhouettes were an attempt to show the unconventional side of the generally worn mundane apparels.
The designer’s vision was to bridge the gap and construct globally acknowledged attires that were impactful and identified with the masses.
