'The Sustainable Man' by fashion brand AJIO featured menswear collections from three designers -- Rajesh Pratap Singh, Pero by Aneeth Arora and Abraham Thakore.

Unconventional, organic and out-of the box!

IMAGE: Double lapel coats like these stood out.


IMAGE: In Marwari, the local language of Rajasthan, 'Pero' means 'to wear'. And Aneeth Arora's collection was all about adapting the local styles for the men into contemporary creations.


IMAGE: Arora played with stripes in handwoven khadi and linen to create shirts, trousers and coats.


IMAGE: The highlight was on layering, so to exploit various prints in one outfit.


IMAGE: One look at his collection and you'd guess the theme of Abraham and Thakore's collection -- Dandy March. The traditional topis, jutis and kurtas got an stylish makeover.
