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.”

Micro Trend: Plastic Fantastic (Latest Post For Vogue India.com)

21st Feb 2013

Here’s a repost of my latest trend article for Vogue India.Com which went live recently Plastic Fantastic

Let’s make it clear. That seems to have been the brief given to accessory designers for the upcoming Spring/Summer season, as bright colours and graphic prints on garments were pared down with neutral Perspex accessories.

Cuffs, bags, chunky block heels, even brims of floppy summer hats were treated with a cool plastic finish.

Karl Lagerfield led the way, sending high heels, cute brick bags and impractically fabulous sun hats with wide Perspex brims down the runway. Hussain Chalayan received the same memo, his beekeeper sun hats were given a space-age touch with neon plastic insertions.

Over at Simone Rocha, simple totes were made dainty with pretty broderie-anglaise style edging.

Sunglasses are also an easy way to incorporate the trend, as was proved on the runways of Prada, Celine and new label Sheriff & Cherry. If you’re wondering about specific design inspiration, retro styling seems to be the most popular.

A Vogue stand-out accessory has to be the beautiful heels at Charlotte Olympia and Givenchy.

Remember how Cinderella lost her glass slipper? Well, she might have done better if she’d had them made in Perspex, like all the other cool girls.
