Label Lust: Ridhi Mehra

20th September 2013

Here’s my latest Label Lust ladies- Ridhi Mehra.

Ridhi’s capsule collections have been making quite the impact. Her floral anarkali was worn by Sonam Kapoor and she’s already got several major stockists including Ogaan, Aza and Pernia’s Pop Up. Not bad for a newbie hey? and a newbie whose work hasn’t even hit the catwalks yet! The reason I’m crushing on Ridhi’s work is the way she use details (think pink tucks, sheer panels, fabric/colour blocking and zips) and what’s become her signature-placement embroideries and embellishments. All these elements come together in her ohhh so yum designs and just look so fresh and so chic. In the lookbook below her S/s pretty florals and colour palette have been replaced with these rich autumnal Vampy colours. Now all I need is for her to get a London stockist!

Vogue India Trend Post: Think Pink

11th Sept 2013

I’ve been sooooo slow at adding some A/w looks to my wardrobe for one simple reason- I just didn’t want to admit Summer was coming to an end. But seeing as that chill seems like its here to stay its time I got a little season ready and my fave A/w trend is def Think Pink. Here’s my latest Trend Post for Vogue India on all things Pink!…

Think pink this autumn/winter. And to give the colour a seasonal update, think minimal as well.

Instead of embellishment and colour blocking with bold tones, go for shades of blush, rose and magenta in key pieces — sweaters, dresses, pants and skirts. If head-to-toe pink doesn’t appeal to you, pair the various hues of rose with classic separates in neutral tones of whites, ivories, stone, khakhis, greys, blacks and metallics.

Designer looks we love are Manish Malhotra’s flowing maxi, Victoria Beckham’s two-tone crepe dress and Nishka Lulla’s blush and gold coat. As always, high street has some great pieces too — Topshop’s simple strappy camisole and Zara’s blush pants and blazers.

Pink is especially natural in India. It reminds us of Rajasthani choli blouses and girly wedding lehengas. Remember what the original Voguette Diana Vreeland famously once said: “Pink… it’s the navy blue of India.”

Friday Fives: Zara A/w 13 Jewellery

23rd August 2013

I can’t bring myself to do any proper A/w shopping posts because I’d have to then face the fact Summer is almost over! yep denial in work over here. But jewellery is season-less non? Well that’s what I’d like to think and so here I am sharing these beauties that have just dropped in store at Zara.

and just thought I’d pay my respects for the inspirational Rosalia Mera, the Inditex group Co-founder who passed away this week. She revolutionised the Spanish and global high street with her brands Zara, Massimo Dutti and Bershka!

WIFW A/W 13: Shantanu & Nikhil

23rd March 2013

Shantanu & Nikhil’s A/w collection was all about the menswear (although there were some stunning womenswear laser cut leather pieces too) For me Menswear is all about strong well cut separates, attention to detail and chic styling and this collection ticks all those boxes. I especially love the ethnic touches from the drop crotch pants, folk weave jackets, nehru collars and the fabbest of fab takes on a modern jersey draped kurta type shape.

1 shantanu & nikhilThere were some hot menswear holdall/clutch shapes- well with slim cut jackets and pants boys they need a bag, right?

Masaba Gupta @ Satya Paul Wifw A/w 13

14th March 2013

The much anticipated Masaba Gupta for Satya Paul opened Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week A/w 13 yesterday. And what a show?! AMAZINGGGG! Masaba injected her fun, quirky and youthful style to the brand. The stunning prints revolved around pop art style telephone boxes and lipstick motifs as well as a Jackson Pollock-esque splatter print. The base colours were whites, blacks and greys with bursts of neon lime, pink and orange and silhouettes included saris, simple shifts, kaftans and a great range of accessories. This super commercial collection will fly out of stores and bring a younger audience to the great brand which is exactly what they hoped for by appointing Masaba as creative director.
