Rocking racy affair collection from Narendrakumar

Apr '08
Keeping in tune with the times and the rise of India in the world of fashion, culture and economics; Narendra Kumar's Autumn/Winter 2008 men's wear collection at Lakme Fashion Week was a rocking racy affair showing that young India was all ready to GET SET GO the title of the line.

To the giant visual of the F1 race track with whirring cars and the pulsating bhangra beats; the colourfully turbaned and bearded male models strutted down the ramp confirming that when it comes to men's wear Narendra Kumar is still Numero Uno.

The colour story was in your face, very bright with red, electric blue, olive green, beige, brown and black for the fabrics which varied from middle weight, knits, chino, leather, denim, corduroy and velvet.

From sporty jackets to sharply cut suits and from form fitting shirts to skinny trousers; the look was young trendy but very practical and wearable. Leather was used for full jackets or trousers or as interesting trims for jackets, trousers and shirts.

There was a touch of embroidery on the shoulders or back of the garments or cotton pigment patchwork. Fabrics for the trousers were treated with tie dye, or twin tone corduroy and denim was just black. Jacket lengths were very short or extra long with a single vent back and two buttons.

Detailing was large bellow flap pockets for jackets, chevrons on the sides of leather cropped jackets, short collars, leather epaulets or on side seams of trousers, piping to highlight collars and yokes and concealed plackets for added style.

The casual wear line of cotton tees and shirts with chinos or denims and the formal wear bandhgala jackets in velvet or jacquard and mid weight suiting completed the collection.

Narendra Kumar's collection for the coming season is for men who are movers and shakers of the country and those who jet around in international ritzy circles.
