The moment model Prabh Uppal stepped into the spotlight ramp in a black Kilt / skirt worn with a casual knit pullover, we knew that Manish Bansal‘s fashion show at Lakme Fashion Week would be distinctive and edgy as far as setting trends were concerned. And how right we were…

Manish looked to Britain and the very iconic British bulldog for his collection which was called The British Canine. Paw prints on jackets and images of a bulldog with a cigar in its jaws ensured the theme was impressed upon his audience and clients.

As far as his silhouettes go (cut from fabrics like felt, wool, cotton viscose and jersey), Manish stuck to western cuts in the form of casual knit pullovers, semi-formal jackets, formal blazers and calf length coats. The ankle length pants had the Union Jack print at the hem and the faux fur detailed collars were a major highlight. The colour blocked/checked patches added dimension and surface texturing for a rugged and hunky look.

And as far as colour goes, Manish presented a well-balanced blend of dark hues like marsala, ox blood, red, navy blue and a pinch of beige – all of, which is inspired by the Union Jack.

Manish clearly has his pulse on the well-dressed man who travels the globe and we can quite imagine his designs being sported at the Derby races (in England) or on a casanova playboy on Wall Street.
