Indian Inspired Hermes Collection

0

Jean Paul Gautier’s inspiration for Hermes Spring 2008 Ready-to-wear Collection came from India and that was apparant right from the get go! There were turbans and in some instances, models’ hair that was styled like turbans with really high top knots!

There were beautiful suede tunics embellished and embroidered…And, I absolutely loved the Nehru jackets worn over jodhpurs. I for one, have never been into Jodhpurs but they are big for spring and I have seen almost every designer do them or atleast interpret them! But how great would those super structured Nehru jackets look with ciggarette trousers? Divine. And, that swimming costume? So reminiscent of the timeless Hermes silk scarf! Fabulous!

And there were these reinterpreted Sari-dresses which left a shoulder bare and had that ethereal feel about them, though must admit, they did sometimes get campy! But not everything in a collection is ever all commercial, so I loved it! And those beautiful purple, aubergine hues made an appearance too! That is ‘the’ color! The rich deep jewel tones were just fabulous!

I loved the longer evening dresses. So feminine, so much of what makes them an instant classic.

The collection was très luxe, uber chic and unquestionably Hermes. Whats not to like?

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These

Birkins. Sweet dreams are made of these. Indeed.

Payal and I have just taken in a holiday weekend at Vegas with the girls and I happen to have come into some winnings. Albeit, tiny ones. But even then, guess where that money went?? To my, ‘When-will-I-afford-a-Birkin-God?” Fund. Yes, such funds do exist, its no urban legend! Check these droolworthy Birkins from the Hermes 2008 Spring ready-to-wear show!

Chocolate will never look or taste the same again. Look at the first Birkin. Am having a serious case of ‘I-Want’itis’!

That’s Preity Zinta looking mighty fine at the Olay-Vogue Brunch at Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur, carrying a beautiful, droolworthy Hermes Birkin bag in an absolutely gorgeous shade of green! Pardon the cliche, but am envious… ‘green’ with envy, what else?!! (Ok, so her bangs are annoying but she’s carrying a bag in such a delectable color… am blind to everything else!)

And then there were three. Rahul Khanna, Gauri Khan and an unidentified lady in the middle. Gauri Khan looks totally washed out but it’s the lady in the middle that caught our attention for all reasons ‘bag’. You see what she’s carrying…? That’s a Bottega Veneta tote and we love.

Bag heaven.

When The Labels Come Calling

The label sporting brigade was out in full force at the Lipton tea promotional event at spa and I couldn’t help but flag down a couple of labels!

The picture below is of Nandita Mahtani carrying a Balenciaga bag which had caught on really big and fast with A listers and fashionistas alike, but that was a while ago and is so last season and an absolute ‘has-been’ now!

I also spotted her wearing Gucci ‘royal’ flat pumps! Canvas and dotted with the logo, all over! Its always the same fashion offense, logo overkill!

And then there is Madhoo carrying an Hermes Birkin Bag. The absolute lustworthy bag that costs upwards of thousands of dollars and where one has to be on a waitlist for months and months! And Madhoo has that bag, unbelievable! And how can one carry a Birkin and be dressed like that? Am speechless.

Madhoo has a Birkin. Seriously. I can’t get over it.
