Keeping It Casual

6

At Masaba’s ‘athleisure’ collection launch for Koovs, both Anushka and Sonal were photographed in looks that were somewhat sporty and definitely casual. While the former was in Pause, the latter lent her support by wearing pieces from the just launched collection.

Of the two, whose look do you prefer?

The Seven Somethings

11

While many of us are still struggling with the February Already syndrome, India’s first fashion week of the year has come and gone. Held at Mumbai’s JioGarden from February 1- 5, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 transported me to a mostly Mai Tai state of mind. I say mostly because sometimes I found myself in a sangeet.

Anyway, a little over a week later and here are the seven things that I still find myself thinking about…

1. You Go Gen Next!
Starring a bunch of talented designers, LFW’s Gen Next Show kickstarts each edition. Some of these debutants go on to launch super successful labels, others win coveted awards and a few manage to do both. Two labels that caught my eye this season were Soumodeep Dutta for his unmistakable Bengal school of fashion vibe and Poochki for their billowing breezy separates.

2. The Exploding Galaxy
Not the Samsung phones but just the ridiculous number of stars that descend down on one fashion week. (The ridiculous number of fashion weeks is a whole other column). Sushmita Sen, Bipasha Basu, Tabu, Diana Penty, Malaika Arora Khan, Daisy Shah, Padma Lakshmi. Sophie Choudry, Vaani Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Nimrat Kaur, Preity Zinta, Swara Bhaskar, Ayesha Takia… Showstopper. Overkill.

3. I Need Some AM.IT In My Life
Patola fused into plastic in AM.IT by Amit Aggarwal’s collection aptly titled Seamless. His pieces occupy the top 10 spots in my wishlist. Discarded saris, signature metallics and green means (and end) of fashion, this collection makes the right noises and looks equally fabulous. Now if only I can pre-order one of those dramatic pieces. And then find an OMG enough place to wear it to.

4. DeBo IS A Thing
Thanks to my blogger friends Priyanka and Payal who very helpfully coined the acronym DeBo (Desi Bohemian ICYMI), I am now convinced more than ever that DeBo is legit. Especially since nothing else seems to describe some looks from Label Ritu Kumar’s Maharaja Pop.

Doing Denim

Anushka attended Pause launch wearing separates from the label. Glasses, shoulder bag, cuff and thong sandals rounded out the retro-isnpired look. On anyone else, this particular denim-on-denim look might not have worked, the songstress however had no such issues. She owned that look and made it work for her.

Patralekhaa, Shibani and Anushka attended the popular high-street brand’s Mumbai launch with Patralekhaa and Shibani wearing H&M and Anushka picking a Dhruv Kapoor. As different as each look was, they did have one thing in common… They all made their respective look work for them.

In Chola

Wearing Chola, Anushka attended Ensemble’s new store launch in Mumbai recently. A pair of black sandals and gold-tone cuff rounded out her look. You know we love an oversized, boxy silhouette and in that department we have no complaints. Just wish the hair was not as teased or had gone all out and worn it even more tousled. Because as is, it only looked like it had lost the battle with humidity and that’s something I know a thing or two about!
