Indian Prime Ministers have not recently been known for making style statements. Neither have they stood out for their sartotrial choices. PM Modi however has been proving that this is indeed possible. The PM has certainly been getting a lot of attention for his style choices.
More recently, at the BRICS leaders summit in Brazil, the PM arrived dressed in silk pants, white shirt and a long cream coloured scarf - a look that did not go down well with his usually sharply dressed looks. Through the summit however, PM Modi was dressed in a string of Bandhgala's and trousers. Unlike his usually coloured wardrobe in shades of light pink and grey, the PM selected earthy tones for his looks.
Mumbai Designer Troy Costa has been roped in to create the looks for the PM for his upcoming US trip. The designer has famously dressed Bollywood big-wigs and industrialists in India. The desiger has not yet made any statements about the look that he is planning for Mr. Modi yet. Known for traditional cotton and silk kurtas that reflect his image, Modi's clothing style and its colour palette has evolved over the years.
As the CM of Gujarat, he mostly favoured bright colours. There has been a shift to more neutral and pastel shades of late. Top designers and stylists have hailed the way Modi turns out and his sense of style. "Modi has cultivated himself really well from the beginning of his campaign to now," says popular menswear designer Narendra Kumar.
