Street style gets a designer makeover

     Next

Designer Vivek Karunakaran sought to "explore the beauty of the aimless wanderer" with his showing on the second day of the LFW.

Confident, languid and borrowing from men's fashion, Karunakaran offered up a host of designs inspired by 'The Urban Vagabond', which also happens to be the name of the collection.

Layered street style was on display, with washed-down finishes and an emphasis on the triangular silhouette. Check it out.

Looking punky, we have a grey bubble dress, teamed with checkered leggings and a trendy little jacket.
