It's rare to see a fresh new influence successfully brought into traditional menswear, and rarer still to see it executed so brilliantly and effortlessly, but in developing his personal style India's prime minister Narendra Modi has fused traditional Indian clothes with the materials and tailoring cues of classic menswear while incorporating the best elements of each. Somehow it all looks natural, setting off British tweed with riotiosly colourful Indian silk, and the aesthetic scales from formal to casual. If his wardrobe projects a message, it is that India can have all the best that the world offers without sacrificing any of its heritage and identity in the process. And that's a pretty good message for a head of state to send.
