The New Pure Man. That's what menswear designer duo Rohit & Abhishek are calling their spring-summer 2010 line. After And with good reason.

In an ode to India's modern royalty -- the jet-setting corporate class -- Rohit & Abhishek showed off their India-inspired business-casual creations in the opening show of Day Three of the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai.

Linens and cottons, kurtas and narrow, low-cut trousers, Jodhpuri jackets and assorted short coats, linens and cottons, satins and velvets the collection had it all.

Let's take a look.

Here, note the golden waistcoat with cape sleeve orange bundi and cropped golden breeches. Funky business!
