Those days are gone where dresses were defined by gender. In this generation, everyone has finally accepted that femininity and masculinity is just a concept that differs the fashion style for women and men. People have almost stopped differentiating the fashion for men and women. You may have seen many people such as Ranveer Singh, Harry Styles, and also the world-famous K-pop band BTS, and other K-pop bands slaying in feminine clothing. These famous personalities have always shattered stereotypes and have proved that anyone can slay in any look they want. Now, adding to this list is a Kolkata man who rocked the look by wearing a sari and a touch of a bindi on the streets of Milan and thus creating waves online.
In the photos, which went viral, Pushpak Sen was seen draped in a black saree along with the silver border. He wore a white turtleneck sweater along with it and then paired a grey checkered blazer with white sneakers. This amazing look of Pushpak is something that can make everyone’s heads turn for sure! He definitely slayed the look, showing off his fashion skills to everyone out there.
In the photo, Sen was seen posing with a black long umbrella, full of elegance and charm. He posted the pictures along with a caption that reads, “Being a man in a saree will lead me nowhere they said. Guess who’s walking in it on the streets of one of the major fashion capitals of the world?”
Sen Is currently pursuing his Masters’s degree in one of the world’s most prestigious fashion institutes, which is located in Florence. He said that the photos were taken when he was on a day trip to Milan along with his friends. According to the reports of indianexpress.com, Pushpak has said that ever since he has shifted to Italy, he loves to wear a saree whenever he can, even to his college. He was quoted saying, “ I now wear a saree more often than earlier.”
He said the photoshoot was not fully planned, but It was taken spontaneously, adding that it was a quite fun experience. Well, explaining about the choice of wearing a saree, he said, “I couldn’t pass this opportunity to visit one of the world’s major fashion hubs and not wear a sari. I had to take my culture there and being an Indian I had to represent it in my own way.”
Sen is in love with experimenting with new styles and various makeup looks and he has been seen online slaying every look. It is really amazing to see the spread of saree fashion in the streets of European towns. Pushpak always pushed forward thehe narrative of androgynous dressing by flaunting the traditional and handloom weaves from Barcelona to Florence. Sen wrote in one of his instagram posts, “My reason to come here where I am was not to blend in, but to represent my roots, my clan, my community.” Is not the first time that Sen has stolen the limelight by wearing saree or bindi. He went viral back in 2020 when he wore a red lipstick as an answer for those women who ‘slutshamed’ his mother when she wore the red lipstick.
