With the transition from warm weather to cooler winds is taking place in Northern India, the effect is evident on our wardrobes as well! Now is the time to bring out light jackets and denims out of our bunks to strike AW’16 in style. John Players by ITC is not just about good dressing, but they thrive to bring out menswear styles for the Indian market as well. Celebrating the evergreen trend of blue JEANS, John Players has introduced a diverse collection of Jeans that promise much more than just the distressed style. Inspired by global fashion, JOHN PLAYERS JEANS has introduced denim styles that will ante up a man’s style, effortlessly. With elements of colours like coral orange, gold moss, sour green and deep teal against Indigo Denims, the contrast can be tagged along as the coolest take on this rich menswear trend. So what can you expect from JOHN PLAYERS JEANS AW 2016 Collection? Patch on/off over embellishments, raw, distressed, laser printed and bleached impacts on denims that widely takes over the line. Hint of Scottish checks and Deep Navys can also be seen on some of the designs. We, the bloggers, too tried our hands on Patch-mixing techniques and splatter techniques to bring a fresh change of style to regular denims for men. The one thing that I personally derived out of this collection is the fact that their is a lot that can be experimented with with basic menswear trends; internationally and nationally. With John Players Jeans AW 2016 line I definitely look up to a fresh change in the way how men perceive style. Breaking the norm that prints and colour is a feminine thing, bold colour hues against Indian Motifs is charging up the way a man can dress up. What’s versatile about this collection …

Nazar by Indu Abbot | PUNE OOTD

August 1, 2016
Nazar by Indu Abbot_1

Their is something about the Indian silhouettes that brings out the beautiful-best in every woman. The grace by which each fabric is sewn to create an ensemble so enchanting, that you expect nothing but a sophisticated royal rendezvous with your inner self. With that, if you amalgamate the decades worth of experience of an artist, the results are no less than a fairytale in itself! So when I got the tickets booked for a week long experiential to Pune, I had to pack something royal for a lookbook shoot on the ruins of once extravagant ‘Shanirwar Wada’. Truth be told, I got intrigued by the whole story of ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and my inner Deepika Padukone screamed for a feature, while I was busy hopping properties and testing wine at Four Seasons Baramati (features coming up). And this is when I was introduced to the world of ‘Nazar’ a fashion label by veteran designer Ms. Indu Abbot; who started her journey in the year 1990. The experience of a designer is well proven by the fact that they know their customer’s requirement and what will compliment them right from the first look itself. So much so, that Ms. Indu was able to hand-pick this beautiful Anarkali from her latest collection, even when I wasn’t able to visit her studio at Patel Nagar (Delhi) since I was having a time crunch and had to take a flight in no more than 12 hours time. The golden gota-patti work, breath-easy fabric, voluminous yet settling silhouette and the oh-so-beautiful Sharara definitely stole my heart away. Not going to deny the fact that quite a few people complimented my look while I was trying to find a spot on a busy Sunday (that place is crowded all week long) to get clicked. What I really liked about this …

Powdered Formal | SUE MUE

Semi Formal With Sue Mue

Being geeky and chic is no rocket science. While I have heard my friends cribbing over wearing shades of grey under the ‘formals’ category, I’d like to differ from the module that many of us follow for a daily routine check. Of course many MNC’s tend to have strict colour codes to be worn to work (my sincere sympathy with you), others who happen to have the liberty of playing around with the colour palettes yet maintain a formal silhouette can work wonders with their ‘serious look’.

Beautiful Is Powerful By Khanna Jewellers

March 22, 2016
beautiful is powerful 1

The one thing that I absolutely love about the marriage season is getting dressed up! With the kind of indo-western influence that has weaved up in our traditional ways of ‘ethnic dressing’ the game has anted up many folds. Right from wrapping up a dhoti-saree ensemble to bringing in the vintage Sabyasachi silhouettes, I just can’t get enough of experimenting with the apparel traditions for every family function. Now experimentation can be a big hit or a faux-pas, but one element of the entire dressing game keeps everything in sanity – The Jewels. For my daily dress up, I prefer keeping a minimalist approach and opt for jewels that are sublime in nature. But when it comes to dressing up for a family gathering, I just can’t do without making a statement. Even in that case, my preference is wearing something which is exclusive, rich in elements and yet makes me look young and fresh! Khanna Jewellers have come up with an exclusive range of royal ornaments that tend to make you look like a contemporary queen. If you too follow the likes of Sonam Kapoor (like me) and are in awe of how flawlessly she carries traditional jewels in a refreshingly modern avatar, then you are definitely going to fall for this range of jewels by Khanna Jewelers. My Experience When I got a chance to visit their store at South Extension, Delhi and try out some of their signature designs; I was definitely left spellbound by the beauty of the craftsmanship and the whole concept ideation upon each piece of the jewel. One can definitely feel more beautiful and powerful by simply adorning one of their Polki necklaces. What I really loved about the collection is its sophisticated design. Each peace emphasizes on the placement of the precious …

Benetton Fall15_Kalapalette1

Probably a little late to say that we are slowing crawling into the clench of frost-biting winters, but a Fall 2015 OOTD post had to happen! Being a summer baby (Yes! I hate the winter blues and prefer sunny side up any time), I am still trying to soak in as much summer warmth as possible. Out for my regular working day, I visited the shopping hub of Saket (Delhi) recently. While wandering through the shopping joints of the mall, I visited the mansion of signature Polo shirts and other flirty yet sporty silhouettes – Benetton and boy! I was in for a treat. United Colors of Benetton has, since the last few seasons, ventured into the serious business of fashion; with collections designed around current market trends and interests of the fashionistas; worldwide. This year too, for their Fall/Winter 2015 collection, the brand has presented a diverse range of western wear that advances from the basics to party, formal and casual wear. Having featured the Benetton Menswear 2015 Collection earlier, it was time for me to dress-up in ‘UCB’ tags and strut around the waiting lawns of Select Citywalk. Take a look at what I wore! First things first, I instantly fell in love with this colour blocked shirt from their Fall 2015. I mean, doesn’t it remind you of Picasso and his affair with colours?   I had been literally on hunt out for the perfect pair of reflector sunnies and this one from the brand just wooed me away! If you are wondering how come I managed to work up some make up, then well, it was the result of my meet with Sonic Sarwate of M.A.C. Psst have you checked out the video, yet? Here’s the LINK. I have a few big luggage bags from the brand and this time …

Flipkart Big Billion Days – Experience

October 28, 2015
Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale

On the evening of 12th Oct, as I was on my way back home from an exhausting field trip getting any calls or messages was the last thing I wished for. Suddenly my phone vibrated and surprisingly I was overjoyed to see what it entailed. It was a reminder cum notification from my Flipkart mobile application about the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale, which was to begin the next day! This was the second edition of last year’s Big Billion Day though spread over five days, this time starting the roller coaster ride from 13th Oct to 17th Oct 2015.   We all must agree that getting discounts is the prerogative of EVERY shopper like me. And this blockbuster of a sale offered incredible offers and discounts on over 70 product categories to us. I was so thrilled from the moment I had got the reminder that I forgot all about my day long fatigue and waited up till midnight for the sale to kick start, with my shopping-list in hand! This sale was restricted to Flipkart’s mobile application. It is a great app which makes it easy to maneuver here and there with one click, it is handy, it even offers an option to ‘shake’ the phone and interact with our peer in a separate box, yet I wish they had made the sale available on the website as well; maybe because I still love the mouse plus we can multitask and open as many tabs of different categories. But the discounts were amazing which made up for my grievances. I came across all the products that I was looking for carrying massive discounts. Not just for me, but there was a lot to gratify everyone as we could get everything under the sun here. Moreover, dates were earmarked …
