Lending a casual touch

Lending a casual touch


STYLISH Models displaying the collection.

At a fashion show held at the Daniel Hechter boutique recently, French designer Christopher Blondin showcased the new spring-summer collection. The clothes were fresh, latest from the French couture and adapted to suit the Indian climate. The show consisted of three different collections of men’s wear and were complete with accessories from the fashion house.

The first collection was inspired from the 60s and had a definite summer touch to it. The models came out in shorts and three-fourths in colours like red, white, black and grey. The T-shirts were in contrasting colours and were kept basic with minimalistic designs. All of these were paired with scarves, loafers and side bags keeping the look simple and yet trendy. The whole look was very casual.  

Next came the collection ‘High Summers and Holidays’. This was all about the colour peach and its variations. The clothes were attractive and a bit more fashionable. The models showcased shirts in hues of pink, lavender and blue. The checks formed a huge part of the show and could be seen on shirts as well as on the three-fourths. The use of horizontal lines gave the clothes a very sophisticated look. Another great combination was the jackets paired with rolled-up pants, which made the clothes look smart yet casual. The trousers were in basic colours like cream and black.  The last collection of the show was ‘Classic with a twist’, where the formal wear was given a bit of a twist with the use of colour. The collection had the models showcasing suits, formal shirts and trousers.  The popular look was the one where a grey suit was paired with a red scarf instead of a tie. Scarves were also seen on a pulled-out casual shirt worn with trousers. On the whole, the clothes brought out a great mix of European fashion adapted to suit the needs of Indian men.
