Sanjay Hingu explored the patriotic angle at the opening show of the LFW's Day Three. The collection, inspired by the freedom fighters of the nation, was urban and not surprisingly, primarily used natural fabrics like cotton and linen. Check it out.

Things kicked off with this lovely graphic checkered jacket, bearing a print of the Father of the Nation on the left shoulder. The casual jeans and black tee ensured that the focus remained on the statement garment.
