In politics, style is never about a garment or a cut. Nothing illustrates this better than Narendra Modi's new muted look
While we were stitching myriad accounts about the Modi kurta, India’s new Prime Minister changed its colour and contrast settings. On the morning of the swearing-in ceremony, Narendra Modi, whose “colourful kurtas", “god-given sense of colour", with a fascination for orange and a supposed disdain for green, had interested style watchers, reached Rajghat in New Delhi in pristine white. The short-sleeved kurta and white sleeveless bandhgala jacket with buttons looking like mints with holes, busted the colour fixation we highlight as the most important detail of Modi Style.
