Personality driven fashion makes a comeback this season as we showcase looks in the shades of India. We take inspiration from the district of Shibuyu, Tokyo, where individuality rules and street fashion meets haute couture, where several trends converge into one autonomous, maximalist look. From embroidered bandhgalas used as jackets over suits, to layering in monochromatic pieces, we make each look our own as it comes alive with the spirit of August

A declaration of independence in all its artsy forms. Individually coloured pieces in orange and blue contrast with the three-coloured Kashmiri motifs on the bandhgala-turned-jacket as you cut a cultured, sophisticated figure in a Made in Italy suit

Take a walk on the wild side. Mandarin, rust, and mango come together in an ensemble that takes a spirited journey into individual expression. Add a paisley print tote and neon-splashed trolley, and you’re off to create history, even if for a day

Stand tall for your right to be free. Liberated from the conventional. Pair shades of orange and white to whip up your own delicious combo, by layering jackets and shirts to give the look a soft edge

Reflections of modern men. Clever layering, fastidious accessorising, shiny souliers, the 21st century dandy is anything but a hangover from another era. His sharp sense of style is reflected in each look he selects, white or blue. Denims, cottons, stripes, dots, and 3D embroidery mix beautifully for looks that are fun all the way

Keep the spirit of sophistication alive. A floral tribute to the craftsmanship of India finds its way on this khaki, salmon, and pale blue bandhgala worn as a jacket with an all-white tuxedo and pants. Indian at heart, with Western nonchalance, this is what individualism looks like

Adopt a stance of resilience. Show them who’s boss in this monochromatic look in the colour of the season, sage. Add layers in different tones of the same hue and a scarf for an outfit that has just a hint of the classic

Be autonomous in mind and spirit! Channel a bit of Japan with a kimono-style blazer and loose trousers that keep the idea of liberty alive. Celebrate the spirit of the season with this combination that is androgynous, yet has the right attitude
