The Seven Somethings


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.

In Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla


It was an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla sari for Tabu while at a recent reception in Mumbai. Wearing her hair back, the actor finished out the look with diamond jewelry and pair of neutral sandals. Like what you see?

In Sabyasachi


Keeping it simple at Manish’s birthday party was Tabu in a black Sabyasachi maxi which she wore with a red belt, a beaded clutch and gold earrings.

I wish she’d picked a black belt so that there wasn’t too much of a disconnect between the jewellery and accessories but it wasn’t a deal breaker. She looked nice nevertheless.

In Anjul Bhandari


Tabu attended a recent event in Mumbai wearing an Anjul Bhandari chikan sari. Aside from wavy hair and pair of big earrings, a classic wristwatch is all that it took to round out the look. The actor looked nice but, the heavy-handed bronzer sure was bit of a downer!

Screening Style


Keeping things simple, Tabu attended a recent movie screening wearing a dotted maxi dress. As nice as the color looked on her, am not the biggest fan of the dress itself… The wide banded detail at the waist seems rather unflattering.
