Rawal goes Cuban, Prateik Babbar showstops

Last updated on: September 20, 2009 


Designer Kunal Rawal created a special Cuban line of menswear to launch Mahindra's new 125 cc Rodeo Power Scooter on Day Three of the LFW. Bold colours and heavyduty boots and belts were the mainstay of the collection; actor Prateik Babbar of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na fame, was the showstopper.

Here's a glimpse of the action on the ramp.

Of course, when you have women start off a men's showing everyone sits up and takes notice. And that's just what happened when model Monikangana Dutta opened the show in a crushed pantsuit and fedora, sporting an undone bowtie for effect.

Casual chic(k)


Lisa Haydon was up next in relaxed white linen blouse and military-green lounging pants.

Super comfort


A turquoise shirt and rolled-up cargos create a comfortable look, completed by a messenger sling bag.

Strike a pose


Sahil Shroff hams it up, posing with one of the Mahindra Rodeo scooter placed at the entry-point of the ramp.

Lace up


The designer takes up on the Cuban love of boots, innovatively tucking the pants in and setting them off with a sleeveless vest, fedora and funky necklace.

Shades of grey


Go the colour-coordinated route in this grey ensemble, with loafers and a kurta thrown in for good measure.

A little on the heavier side


Rawal modifies the breezy feel of the collection so far with a brown military-style jacket and matching boots.

Billowing blue


Unwind effortlessly in a free-flowing kurta with matching pyjamas. We like the sleepy blue hue.

Square things out


Metrosexual musings make their presence felt with this square-shouldered sports jacket, worn over a Hawaiian shirt and set off by a man purse.

Dash of sunshine


The yellow shirt brightens up the feel of the line considerably; the undone bow-tie makes another appearance.

Flash of fame


Actor Prateik Babbar of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na fame made quite an entrance, with the rest of the model brigade in tow behind him.

Having a good laugh


Rawal and his showstopper are relaxed and share a laugh as they make their way down the runway.
