With No Shave November and International Men’s Day, it’s truly the month to celebrate the hardworking and handsome men in our lives. The third edition of Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights is the cherry on top, giving a whole new dimension and meaning to menswear.

Pushing the limits of basic silhouettes and introducing new techniques, the Day 1 of Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights definitely saw some power-packed collections that took over the runway. Here’s a quick recap of what all went down in regards to men’s fashion yesterday night:

Shantanu & Nikhil

Shantanu & Nikhil described their collection as a whole new arena in which storytelling & fashion come alive on a sartorial canvas. The lineup showcased exactly what they were initially talking about. The juxtaposition of boho vibes with clean tailoring made a major statement on the ramp. Even the accessories, especially which adorned the hands of the models, were eye-catching. Radhika Apte made a fierce appearance on the ramp as a showstopper.

Van Heusen

Van Heusen’s #VHPowergreens brought freshness to the well-tailored three-piece suit. The different shades of green took over the ramp like a breath of fresh air. Accessories like the handbags and pocket square completed the dapper look. Dino Morea made a dashing appearance on the runway and made sure we know who is the model-in-charge.

Antar-Agni by Ujjawal Dubey

Know for his innovative silhouette, this time around Ujjawal Dubey added the edge of metallic yarn for his collection called Men Of Metal. The monochrome palette garnered more attention because of the textured surface techniques that he showcased. Also, the bands on the feet, giving an illusion of footwear and the gloved hands were the interesting details that we loved.

Dhruv Kapoor

Taking the comfort of dressing to another level, Dhruv Kapoor presented a sports luxe collection. We saw a lot of doubles; double jackets and double bags that were evident on the international runway made a moment here, too. Floral prints were designed to fit the menswear vibes alongside stripes and oversized silhouettes.

Sahil Aneja

Street style was more refined than ever, thanks to Sahil Aneja. His self-made printed fabrics and textures along with the unique silhouettes made an impact. The collection was for the evolved youth who isn’t afraid to make a statement. The gang was ready for hibernation with the eye-catching, long slogan belts. Ayushmann Khurrana looked like the true warrior of the pack and made sure he had an impactful walk.

Raghavendra Rathore

Raghavendra Rathore introduced androgyny in bespoke tailoring with his collection Bandhgala Alliance. His attention to detail was very well evident in the exquisite embroidery and sharp tailoring. Iconic silhouettes like bandhgalas, jodhpur breeches, waistcoats, kurtas, achkans, dresses and evening wear tunics were also presented with the timeless charm. The whole collection oozed elegance. To top it all, the dashing Anil Kapoor graced the ramp in a regal appearance as the showstopper.
