MY! What have we got here? Back-to-back sightings of Rahul Khanna! And the latest one (from the unveiling of Nautica’s Autumn/Winter’16 collection yesterday) is more of a treat for us: he was decked out in smart casuals (from Nautica). Yeah, he’s rarely papped in casual wear, but you’ll be pleased to hear that Mr Khanna looks as sharp in them as he does in a suit.
Jeans, shirt, cotton bomber jacket, white low-tops. It sounds so, well, humdrum, doesn’t it? But trust him to deploy some special alchemy to turn such base metal into sartorial gold. He looks just so elegant! And the trick to that lies in the fit and restraint: notice how all the items of clothing fit him like a glove and that there are no random colours thrown in there. And of course, the cleanliness and simplicity of the sneakers are also important: we wouldn’t recommend doing this with a pair of weathered Stan Smiths or blingy Zanottis or studded Givenchy Tysons or aggressive Rick Owens Geobaskets.
We had to ask him the secret to such artful casual dressing and this is what he said:
Keep it simple, keep it appropriate for the weather and the occasion and pick pieces that resonate with your own personality. Because when you feel good, you automatically look good!
