ABHISHEK DUTTA
Runway Report
 

For Abhishek Dutta, feeding on different artistic disciplines is vital and his aesthetic of fusing ancient embroideries with futuristic cuts on leather and handloom has earned him Smirnoff International Fashion Award and Most Creative Designer at Entr'acte. ''Men's fashion has been lagging behind in our country so fashion weeks like this creates an awareness for- and imparts knowledge to- the urban male; so many designers showcasing on a single platform creates a huge platter for their selection'' he shared with me a few days before his showcase at India Luxury Style Week.

 

As the first looks came out, it was evident this collection was experimental—keeping commercial viability in mind. With animal instinct as the base, the designer experimented with a medley of 3D textures, metal spikes, appliqués and leather detailing that showed inclination towards goth. All these influences went into the design cauldron to produce a rich, creatively eclectic collection. Balancing the decorative overload, silhouettes were kept simple and functional — lapelled jackets, asymmetrical kurtas, trench, bombers and shirts with quirky detailing, worn with low-crotch and wraparound pants, were crafted with handwoven linen and cotton tweed — in cameoflage palette

 

What made this collection special though was the launch of his footwear collection — handmade leather shoes crafted with embossed leather, printed leather- and the highlight- hand-embroidered handcrafted shoes. Overall, it was a show which fully held attention.
