Streetsmart look of Dil Chahta Hai heroes sets the trend for Indian urban males

first_imgIf one had to pick out a single symbol that reflects the changes in the Indian urban male’s style book, it would be the refreshing, streetsmart look of the heroes of Dil Chahta Hai.Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan have set a trend that has found clones in,If one had to pick out a single symbol that reflects the changes in the Indian urban male’s style book, it would be the refreshing, streetsmart look of the heroes of Dil Chahta Hai.Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan have set a trend that has found clones in college canteens, nightclubs, movie halls, even in boardrooms.Here are the basics of the DCH look: a spiffy, sharp haircut, like that of one of the heroes in the movie; short-shirts with slits in the sides, in orange, purple, bright blue or green; loose-fitting trousers or bright pyjamas; and sandals.Literally on the cutting edge of men’s style today are the trio’s trendy, close-cropped haircuts, courtesy Juice, the hair salon run by Adhuna Bhabani, who is married to DCH director Farhan Akhtar. “The response has been overwhelming,” she says. “Fifty per cent of the men who walk in demand the DCH look.”Man in The Mirror: Vishesh Bhatt and Shubham Agarwal getting the DCH cut at Nalini and Yasmin’s, MumbaiThe most prominent, inexpensive and easy way to look in vogue is growing the soul patch or zap that Aamir sports on his chin. And all that it takes is a new shaving routine. Gaurav Gupta, a 24-year-old Mumbai doctor, dons one and calls it “mosquito”.The new look is even finding its way to advertisements, such as the Onida Black ad, which features actor Rajat Kapoor (who incidentally acted in the movie) with an Aamir-style zap.The sartorial style that the DCH trio represents is markedly androgynous. A change largely envisaged by New York-based designer Arjun Bhasin, who experimented with bright, feminine colours like lilac and yellow, and designer Aki Narula, who relished the creative freedom to dress the heroes in two-toned shirts and sheer shirts as outer swimwear.advertisementFashion stylist Yogendra Tripathi cautions that the upbeat DCH look may just be a passing fad, but the way men look now, it seems it will stick around for a while yet.last_img read more
