Mumbai: Being the brother of a fashionista like Sonam Kapoor can make things tough for anyone, but actor Arjun Kapoor says he has managed to keep her happy with his style sense.
The 31-year-old actor, who walked for designer Sahil Aneja’s label at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016, said he is still learning the game of fashion.
“I have enjoyed being myself in past four years of my career. The evolution happens after becoming part of the business, doing films, attending events and meeting designers. We get to understand what looks good on us.
“I have learned some of it and I am happy that I have not made too many fashion faux pas. I have never been scolded by Sonam on my style sense. But I am still learning. At times, you decide your clothes according to your frame of mind,” Arjun said at the post show conference.
The “Ki & Ka” star said comfort is the most important aspect for him when it comes to dressing up.
“My personal style is wearing track pants, t-shirts and chappals. I prefer to be casual and relaxed. For me, comfort is very important. If you are not comfortable, you can’t be stylish,” Arjun said.
The actor walked the ramp wearing leather jacket with chain detailing teamed with grey shirt and cropped trousers. The silver studded shoes and aviator sunglasses completed his look.
“I love leather jackets. Without sounding pompous, I believe I carry them off fairly well,” he said.
Aneja showcased his collection at the show titled Grazia young fashion awards winnet’ 2016. The designer was the winner of the menswear category.
His collection, “Grunge”, incorporated leather, wool, crepe and leather prints for three-four layered garments.
Other winners to showcase their collections were label Doodlage by Kriti Tula, Chola by Sohaya Misra, Shikha Grover and Vinita Adhikari’s Ilk, Amrita Khanna and Gursi Singh’s Lovebirds, Misho by Suani Parek, Cord by Pranav Guglani and Neha Singh and Shivangi Sahani.
While Sohaya’s line was inspired by the anti-fit Japanese designs, Shivangi’s collection was based on the bazaars of Morocco.
