Trends #6

collage final 1

2016 is on and what are the fashion forward men wearing?
This story talks about some of the key looks which are hot on trend right now.

Shot in the beautiful locations of Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, the journey of this shoot was amazing and this is just a culmination of all the major #6 looks that I covered in this heart warming trip to the mountains. The individual stories will follow soon. Talking about each look in detail.


Tobacco Dandy


This look highlights the color tobacco as a strong upcoming color for men this year. The style is created with picking formal separates, married together to create the beautiful contrast of grey textures against a clean tobacco colors.

The whole look is Anuj Bhutani.




The idea of Norm Core began with not following fashion. Wearing “normal clothing” and being almost anti fashion. Dressing neutral and not stand out is the idea. Basics run the town on this look/trend. No branding, no prints.

This clean look(all) is from HnM, matched with my favourite Nike sneakers.


All Black


Running from history to current runways, this monotone look may or may not be called a trend but it is definitely timeless to wear an all black look. Unisex in its appeal, this look is a mix and match of brands and textures of black.

Jacket by Anuj Bhutani, pants from HnM and boots are Diesel.


Future active


Sports and active wear influence on fashion has been a change of a sort which is a paradigm shift. This look is futuristic where a full suit is completely driven by the sports gear. This creative genius is from Noughtone by Abhishek Paatni, matched with Puma hi-top sneakers.


Sports Tailored


Almost an oximoron in sound but a completely sensible idea for clothing. Few subtle highlights and tailoring on special fabrics to create a tailored look with which you are ready to do a summersault, if you like. Growing with sportswear influence, this makes complete sense for a new direction in clothing.

The whole look is HnM, matched with Nike sneakers.


Into the Wild


This look is about lifestyle first and then trend/fashion. For a travel shoot, this was a must as this is how most creative travelers dress like. Down jackets and washed denims are a staple for this comfort look.
