In Ikai


Shibani attended the launch party of a TV channel wearing Ikai by Ragini Ahuja. The nude dress featuring tan leather appliques was paired with nude pumps by Steve Madden and rings by Bershka.

I am a huge Ikai fan and so a sighting always makes me happy. A well styled one, even happier. ๐Ÿ™‚

You can buy Ikai at Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop here.

In Anita Dongre


Wearing an Anita Dongre maxi, Sonakshi attended a press meet for the just launched World Kabaddi League where she announced her association with the sports organization.

With the neckline being so low and so wide, weโ€™re not sure why there needed to be defined cups on the maxi; the odd stitching only ruined a look that was otherwise nice.

India Couture Week 2014: Sabyasachi


Whether jaded by his clothes or not, there’s no one better than Sabyasachi to create a mood within a space, be it with the interiors of his stores or the decor around his presentation. And this latest showing from him at Couture Week was no different. While we weren’t there in person, the images make us wish we were. With the stage set to resemble First Class coupes and cabins in trains of the past, there is an unmistakable hum of quiet luxury with the patina of everything vintage. Our only gripe, wish we had better pictures.

But enough of the setting, on to the clothes. Sabyasachi’s Ferozabad Collection offers what we’ve come to expect from the designer. Signature silhouettes in fabrics like khadi, net and velvet and beautifully beaded, embroidered, Zardozi-rich pieces among others were the mainstay of the collection. What stood out however was the sari with the pashmina pallu, the soft/dusty chintz-ey florals, Nehru jackets and the bolder menswear. It was the latter (menswear) that was perhaps the most exciting part of the presentation.

While we have always admired the very earthy sensuality of a Sabyasachi woman, it was the ‘Veuve Clicquot drinking, Polo playing, occasionally goes hunting man from the times of Raj’ imagery that we got from this showing that made far more of an impact. It could mean two things- Either the menswear was that good or we are ready for something fresher and newer (even if it means re-inventing the already mastered beautiful wheel) when it comes to womenswear from Sabyasachi.
