Popular designers Arjun Khanna, Falguni Shane Peacock and Payal Singhal think this year will see sustainability leading the men’s fashion front.
Designer Arjun Khanna
Denim: The biggest style statement for 2020 will continue to be denim. Denim across various forms and silhouettes is overripe for designers to experiment with. The messaging of recycled denim adds to making the trend a huge success. Denim jackets with patch work, embellishments, denim ties, denim on denim is going to be one of the biggest menswear trends in 2020.
Sustainability: Since sustainability is the need of the hour, traditional textiles will also make a big comeback. The use of traditional textiles for formal wear like blazers and suits in old school tailoring methods will be a huge trend for 2020.

Structure: Slim cut suits that are more structured and fitted will be the choice when it comes to suits. A sleek silhouette adds the classic charm to any suit and gives it a more sophisticated and well-groomed look.
Bandhis: Bandhis are going to make quite a comeback. An amalgamation of new and old will result in this style being sported in various shades, textures, and prints. The ubiquitous bandhis which are a staple at any traditional occasion will soon be seen making waves at other platforms too.
Designer Payal Singhal
Print-on-print: Print-on-print and head-to-toe print is big for the coming season — it’s a look we dressed Farhan Akhtar in for our runway show, and one that was also seen on Karan Johar.
Sheer kurtas: The kurta has got more modern with sheer kurtas coming out as big winners this season. Wear it with a shalwar, Pathani or velvet dhoti rather than a churidar.
