Reinterpreting biker grunge

Indian designers have time and again toyed with the idea of Indo-western fusion. Anamika Khanna’s sari pants, Tarun Tahiliani’s sari gowns come to mind. This time menswear specialist designer Arjun Khanna for his Lakme Fashion Week show married the biker jacket with the traditional bandhgala.

The ace couturier made a runway splash after a long time and teased our little sartorial hearts. As his brawny models came wearing biker jackets, structured trousers and helmets, the testosterone-heavy vibrations in the show area could be felt. Leather tassels, his trademark pipings, zippers and fringes – were the leitmotifs of the show. He amalgamated the bandhgala and bandis with the biker jackets exemplifying his push on tailoring. Separates had cheeky letterings like ‘Biker Butt’ and ‘Biker Bundi’ added a fun twist.
Cricketer Yuvraj Singh was the showstopper in an all white biker ensemble.

What we loved: A red and black quilted leather jacket with studs which spelt bad ass biker and punk rocker at the same time.
