The answer… an uber kewl Kangna Ranaut looking stunning in pinstripe trousers, satin shirt and black velvette jacket complete with a hat. Nari continued the show with his black and white collection that had hints of silver, giving some stylish and interesting innovations to the popular sturdy bottom wear that men are so fond of, and received a thunderous applause from die-hard fans.
It was a collection dedicated to jeans and tuxedo jackets. Slim pants, delicately hand-embroidered jackets, sporty tuxedos in a range of styles, highly-tailored jeans were the highlights. There was carefully-created detailing — pin tucks, blind tucks, pleats, piping, cording, satin insertion and very bold embroidery — to match the fabric texture. Particularly interesting were the piped holster pockets on the slim pants. Tuxedo shirts, shawl collar embroidered waist coats, silver satin MAC coats, embroidered shirts with bold motifs, stand-up collar, cutaway waistcoats, velvet jackets with contrast shawl collars and finally a black brocade and silver jacquard jacket in beige and gold linen with hand embroidery which closed the show.
The mood for the evening was set by the highly electric Shair and Func belting out some foot-tapping rock numbers. The ever popular designer had quite a star studded front row. There was the ravishing Gul Panag accompanied by Arzoo Gowitrikar. Notably absent at the show was Adhyayan Suman but appreciating the collection was Shekhar Suman. Also cheering for the designer were Arbaaz and Malaika Arora-Khan along with actors Arjan Bajwa and Mukhul Dev.
But naturally, Nari
Particularly interesting in Narendra Kumar’s Autumn/Winter menswear collection were the piped holster pockets on the slim pants. We loved the tuxedo shirts, shawl collar embroidered waist coats, silver satin MAC coats, embroidered shirts with bold motifs, stand up collar cutaway waist coats, velvet jackets with contrast shawl collars and finally a black brocade and silver jacquard jacket in beige and gold linen with hand embroidery.
Interestingly, although it was a show dedicated to men’s wear, Nari added some long stylish gowns, also in the same colour story.
Verdict: It was a thumbs up for Nari from all the fashionistas for this collection.
