Mix matching colors, fabrics and playing fusion with silhouettes is a common story. But what becomes experimental is when you try to throw a print on another print. Yes, I am talking about the crazy amalgamation of say, Houndstooth over Gingham print. How’s that for an inspiration? Having been following up on French Connection India collection for over 3 years now, I had to checkout their SS’14 collection too. Although, a little late from the general standards of featuring an SS’13 collection (now that the monsoon is coming), I had to share what I found in French Connection India’s SS’14 collection. Being an international brand, French Connection makes sure to include the current trend in their collection, like always! Just like last year’s SS’13 collection saw lots of neon and solid palette love, this year adapted the international runway trend of Print on Print. Not just prints, but French Connection has showcased a line of breezy summer fabrics, quirky prints and a dash of glitter too. Take a look at the collection! With a collection so artistic, I had to create a few looks with em! So much to choose, experiment and mix-match with, I had a great time putting up the following 4 looks for all my readers. Check them out. Print on Print Rules 1. Always match the solid tones of two prints. Eg. A black print on white solid base will always go with a white print on a black solid base. 2. Neutral print goes with a colorful print. 3. Mix prints in similar color family. 4. Same patter can be matched in different scales/print sizes. 5. Add a solid element to break up the prints. Now that you have enough reasons to try out this fun trend, go ahead and visit your nearest French Connection …

Autumn Winter 2012 (AW’12) This year is all about bright colours, shimmer, embellishments, faux fur and lots of laces and crochet. Don’t be surprised as the above mentioned are just few from the list of AW’12 Trends on both national and international grid. Working as an Assistant Stylist with Vogue’s Style Guru “Aaditya Walia” has helped me do my homework right! And to present the worthy efforts right, I have come up with Autumn Winter Shoot Series all this season. Shot by my professional photographer and friend Rashmi Nair from RashNair, I present to you the 1st shoot from AW Shoot Series. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. – Coco Chanel AW Shoot 1 – French Connection goes Monochrome Ensemble White Crochet Dress : French Connection Narnia Fur Gilet : French Connection Lunar Glimpse Studded Clutch : French Connection Black wrap around : D.I.Y.

After having a successful store cover of TOMMY HILFIGER, and receiving such a great response, I was so excited to go on and cover another amazing store for you. (Well I hope the coverage grows with time ^_^) So this time I got the opportunity to cover FRENCH CONNECTION store in Saket. The moment I was inside the store, I could feel the cooling effect of the color palette, the texture and the designs, specially crafted for hot Delhi Summers. First I checked out the MEN’S SECTION! They have a good color palette to offer when it comes to Polo Shirts. The texture was perfect for summer dress ups.  Well if you are a serious kind of a person, who stays in the office more than casual hang outs, then fret not.Because FCUK has a great formal “summer special” collection for you businessmen out there. You get variety of sleeves to choose from, along with some sober patterns especially for formal look. But if you have a date and want a semi formal look, they have great shirts + tees combination teamed with cool half pants. Ultra fashionable and comfortable are the words to describe this collection. You can experiment by adding belts, scarves and sunglasses. And when I focused on the WOMEN’S SECTION, I was just so happy to see the “TANGERINE FEVER” taking toll on FCUK as well. There were different types of tangerine tops, dresses and even blouses. There was a wide variety of formal, semi formal and casual collection to choose from.The best part being, the majority of the collection was in cool colors, with a very small percentage focusing on the warm colors.In casual tees I could find great variety of nautical patterns. There were variety of dresses in the collection as well. From Summer Cotton dresses, …
