Masaba Gupta showcased 'Chhalni', her latest resortwear line for women as well as her first men's collection, 'Litmus Test', on Day Four of the LFW.

'Chhalni' means net and played a big role in the designer's creations. Bright colours and mix 'n' match garments, from pocket saris to anarkalis that can be worn to the beach took to the runway, while ikat work and geometric motifs were the mainstay. The jewellery that was teamed with the clothing was by Amrapali.

The male models got the show off to an interesting start, stepping out from the audience straight onto the ramp. Here's a glimpse of how it all went down.

First we see a very cool kurta-pajama for men, set off by a kitschy sleeveless polka-dot waistcoat -- and a leather trunk.

Itsy-bitsy polka dot bikini

Just right for the beach, we have a polka dot bikini teamed with matching boy shorts and a patchwork blue and yellow net jacket.

Linen look

Very cool and summery, a white linen kurta for men cascades to the ankles and is worn over a yellow silk dhoti.

Patchwork pret

Marianna Dias strikes a pose in a patchwork-embroidered and yellow mul maxi.

Pocket sari

Kitschy but attractive, a white and yellow net sari shows off a patch pocket and black net choli.

Orange crush

Bits of fuschia border and orange crush set off another dotted bikini, skirt and netted jacket.

Jumpsuit for men

Seen here is a blue and white striped ikat jumpsuit for men.

Easygoing anarkali

A white embroidered bustier sets off this full-sleeved, net beaded anarkali.

Colour brigade

Masaba steps out with her models in a colourful brigade on the ramp.
