Fast becoming a name to reckon with in the fashion industry, young designer Dhruv Kapoor presented an avant-garde approach to classics that provided a new edge to everyday clothing on Day two, Wednesday, of the Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights event in Mumbai.
This collection revolved around his approach to deconstruct “Classic” and outgrow the traditional ideas in menswear. An eclectic mix of science fiction and tradition, Kapoor, said that he targets the metrosexual men of today through his collection.
Puffed air-force bombers, micro shorts mixed with traditional trousers, layered jackets and all year trenches formed an integral part of the collection. Furthermore, colour and prints were twisted together to showcase harmony between the old and new. Coated nylons, techno jersey and boiled wool paired with classic cottons, covered most of the fabrics used in the collection with keen attention to detail.
The collection also sported traces of the iconic wallpaper print from the youthful 70’s toned down with a dark palette of navy and a pop of yellow. Commenting on his line, Kapoor said, “This is a new direction for the modern man of today, commencing the order of the ages, focusing on specialized luxury.”
