New Delhi: Bollywood actors Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif sashayed down the ramp at the grand finale of the Van Heusen India Men's Week (VHIMW) for designer duo Karan Johar and Varun Bahl, bringing down the curtains on the three-day gala event in style.

The show began with hooting and applause as Imran took centre stage. The actor looked confident and, with a wide smile, walked down in a black-blue jacket with crisp white trousers.

The first row hooters saw actor Rahul Dev clapping and cheering enthusiastically.

The main show area set the mood with dim blue lights fencing what looked like a cruise with wind navigators placed at the corners, and the ramp floor replicated the sea shore. It looked like one was walking on white pebbles.

Model-turned-actress Katrina, who is not new to the spotlight and ramps, walked in a short black shimmering jacket and black trouser as a rockstar.

She was joined by Imran again, this time in a black formal coat, trouser and shirt and the two walked hand in hand, much to the delight of the audience.

The designer duo showcased the men's pret collection for the second time. Complementing the ambience were the clothes that talked about a vision of Mediterranean chic with a nice blend of florescent slinky cowls, stiff-falling linens and bright silk jerseys.

The colour palette ranged from calm, neutral shades like beige, pastel and olive to denim, pale blue and mustard.

Apart from Imran and Katrina's presence, another high-point of the show was when some models appeared on the ramp shirtless, flaunting their well-built bodies in boxer shorts.

Flush of colours at Manoviraj Khosla's show

Manoviraj Khosla’s name is synonymous with bright colours, and this time too at the Van Heusen India Mens Week on Sunday, the designer didn’t shy away from splashing hues on the runway, although in a subtle manner.

This is the third time the Bangalore-based designer is participating in the Men’s week. In the past two seasons, he has always been making bold choices -- be it bright colours or letting the boys wear hot-pants. His forte lies in being different.

This time too Khosla used colours like pink, yellow, orange and purple for some of the outfits, and balanced his line by using shades like beige, black, white and grey.

There were colours in my line, but yes, not that much because I didn’t want to be repetitive and predictable. So the idea was to keep the signature there and work more on the wear ability factor, Khosla said.

The line was about cool guys, nothing over the top. There was an Indian influence in it but with a bit of contemporary twist, he added.

The designer had used the tie-and-dye technique and kept the length of the jackets shorter than normal. Folded pants, zipper jackets, waist-coats, crushed cotton shirts and linen pants teamed with funky printed shoes and bags are sure to start a new trend for men.
