As we drove past Vogue Fashion’s Night Out banners outside Emporio, we wondered if women were ruling the roost that night. Interestingly, once we arrived at the mayhem, there were puff-folds and Nehru collars that inspired and arrested us. Men got it just right by faring better than the fairer sex. Our sartorially challenged men were aplenty, but a dash of dapperness here and there, kept our lens jumping for more. And us, on our toes ;) We present to you three men who best embodied the looks that night.
We started our fashionable night out snapping Aaditya Walia, Senior Fashion Stylist of Vogue India; and he demonstrated how to wear pattern the refined way. Aaditya matched the distinguished piece with a pair of fitted chinos in beige and a tailored Nehru jacket in plum colour. The dapper evening look was given an animalistic touch with a leopard print pocket square.
From there, we moved onto where the subject of our lens was flocked by one and all. Nikhil Verma’s sharp accessories and clothing focused on finer details, thus the broader picture looked perfect. What caught our eye was his vest with an Indian kitsch art, but one had to peek through his suit jacket to see the motif. Nikhil lent a distinguished touch to his attire by wearing a summer blazer, and accessorized it with a traditional lapel pin. At the bottom, he went the Italian way by going sockless and wore a pair of chic suede tassel loafers. The objective of Nikhil’s outfit was clearly to stand out, but much rather special in terms of cut, colour, details and all of the above.
While there were some stylish suit wearers that night, the prize has to go to Rupi Arora, for wearing an impeccably tailored grey suit by Ermenegildo Zegna. He accessorized it with a natty pocket square and a silk knitted tie in a half Windsor knot. Rupi added an individuality and versatility through the detail. His style best represented Italian elegance.
Our fashionable journey with Indian men has just begun. And Vogue Fashion’s Night Out was an inspiring array of colours, patterns and combinations. All the trendsetters in one place have provided us a lot of food for thought.
