Digvijay & Troy show Indo West mood of menswear

Sep '09
Digvijay Singh and Troy Costa showed the Indo West Mood of men's wear at Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010. Using his favourite pure organic blends of natural banana, orange, flex and hemp fibres; DigVijay Singh for Bhusattva had a unisex collection in a discreet shade card of yellow, ink, brown, grey, ash and wax all tinted with herbal dyes. The inspirations were surprisingly magical characters like genies, pirates, magicians and warriors but the garments reflected a somewhat Zen like feel. The silhouettes were comfortable and casual.

Adding just five women's wear which matched the look of the collection, DigVijay Singh had a constant style story of short or long wrap around tunics with rear tie-ups, pale colour blocking in the form of contrast pockets, patches or yokes and the asymmetric closures which were a favourite.

Interesting combinations were the white cotton satin shirt with black button and kora silk Patiala salwars, the grey tie-up shirt with black piping and twill tussar, brown tussar silk pleated kurta with slit sleeves and leaf print churidars and the wrap kurta with slim fit trousers. The garments were either teamed with skinny trousers, churidars or Patiala salwars, The women's wear was more unisex with kora silk shirts, angarkha kurta and a kurta kaftan.

The overall look was lean and structured with ample detailing to add some stylish dimensions to the garments.

The finale outfit a dusty brown piped kurta with an overlapping collar on popular Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade was a striking entry.

With a blend of Indo-west silhouettes and style the DigVijay Singh for Bhusattva men's wear line will be great summer wear that has a universal international appeal.

Travel and fashion are important for the jet setter who zooms around the world, so Troy Costa's collection had an interesting theme “Una Dea Du Habana or One Day in Havana”.

From the beats of the opening pulsating salsa dance by ace TV choreographers, Nicole and Deepak of Jhalak Dikhla Jai fame; the audience was treated to a feast of lively colourful western men's wear that had the vibrancy of the theme but at the same time was very practical and ideal for those months when the mercury soars.

An interesting detail which could set a trend for men's wear was pushed back shoulder pads which gave a sleek look, to the sharply cut lean one or two button suits. Denim, linen, velvet, cotton, jacquard and silk, in medium to dark tones of beige, blue, brown, grey and ivory made stylish fashion statements.

Crushed cotton shirts with top stitch, distressed denim jeans, funky checked trousers, bright rust shirt, blue checked Bermudas, blousons with patched bellow flap pockets and flat front skinny trousers gave a marked retro feel of the Cuban era as the mustachioed models strutted down the ramp. Ombre tones appeared for denim and batik jackets all with skinny lapels. Jaunty caps, spacious shoulder bags and trendy footwear added the right Caribbean touches to the garments. The final line up of jackets in diverse fabrics for evening wear was a sleek and trendy offering.

Troy's show stoppers, were hot Bollywood favourites, Aftab Shivdasani and Manoj Bajpai, from the forth coming movie Acid Factory. Aftab confidently ramped down in a gleaming jacket and Manoj strolled in a pinstriped navy suit.

Troy Costa's exciting and vibrant Cuban look for the decision making high flyer will surely be a hot seller and definitely push the wearer up the corporate ladder of success.
