Nitin’s ‘Urban Voyager’ takes LFW on trendy masculine ride
March 19, 2014 - India
Blending work and resort wear in an unconventional manner, Nitin Chawla’s “Urban Voyager” collection for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 was practical with attention to meticulous detailing.
Designing under his label “Theorem”, Nitin Chawla who was part of last season’s Gen Next group, revealed his expertise in designing men’s wear. Opting for linen, cotton, poplin, light weight and printed denim, cotton silk, printed linen and chambray, Nitin offered the stylish male a line of relaxed shorts, trousers, zippered blousons, cropped biker’s jackets and loose duffle coats.
Colour blocking in bold hues added to the seasonal look of the ensembles. Zips played a major role for closures or as embellishments; while the silhouettes were wide and comfortable
Interesting entries were the raglan sporty jacket with shorts, denim coat with patch pockets, star printed resort collar shirt, the two way zip pocket bomber and the front zip double-breasted jacket. Introducing the voyager “Shacket” Nitin added a new dimension to the men’s wear. The final four-button short slim suit with contrast printed collar shirt was ideal for formal holiday wear.
For men’s wear that gave a major fashion direction, Nitin Chawla’s “Urban Voyager” was definitely the right route.
