{ Stylaned } – Modernist Gota feat. Jenjum Gadi

Jenjum Gadi who was one half of the label KOGA sometime back now has his own label. Not afraid to experiment with materials, this time Jenjum has focussed on ‘Gota Work’. Using it in a way that is very different from the traditional Indianwear, he has given the concept of Gota a breath of fresh air! For example the jacket that is featured here, you will never be able to realize that its surface ornamentation has been done using ‘Gota’ but go close and you’ll see what I’m talking about. His collection ranges from some aggressive modernist gota usage to minimal ethereal forms and usage.

{ Stylaned } – Shrubs of Steel feat. Anand Bhushan

When I saw Anand Bhushan’s “Junkyard” show at The Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW2012 by FDCI, I knew I would definitely be doing a feature on it! With crazy creativity like that its hard to tell what must be going on in that mind of his…but he agreed! Apart from picking up a gorgeous and ‘heavy-duty’ jacket from his ‘Junkyard’ collection, I also picked up a very different, light and delicate tunic from one of his previous collections as well. It was too pretty to pass.

{ Stylaned } – White Noise feat. DRVV

It was by chance that I got to know Dhruv Kapur , at the recently concluded Delhi Couture Week, where he (very boldly might I add) and his sister wore solid white dresses from his label DRVV, his being backless. I was instantly drawn. So I went up to him, explained what I did, asked him if he was interested…and the rest is history.
Presenting #Stylaned featuring DRVV by Dhruv Kapur – Collection ‘HOWARD

{ Stylaned } – Priyal Prakash House of Design

Introducing #stylaned as a regular feature on the blog. In collaboration with @naina
As our very first feature we bring to you Priyal Prakash House of Design and a drop dead gorgeous gown from her collection. But who says it should be limited only for the evenings? With a fabulous open-back and sultry gold detailing on the sleeves and bust it really does take sexy to the next level. When you have a beautiful gown like this you MUST NOT clutter the look. It will only downplay the beauty of the gown. Let the gown shine in all its singularity and play with just one set of accessories to accent the look.

Drinks and Canvas Green

The colored denim trend has been raging for quite a while now. I have’nt dipped my pretty legs in all available colors. But the 2 colors that do happen to really work for me are Canvas Green which im wearing in this post and Coral which you will pobably see in another one. Just the deviation from the usual indigo denim color makes the denims somehow appear lighter and bearable for summer-wear. Plus I love color!

A Working Saturday Brunch – Cointreau Inspired

What happens when you have your best people around you and your best alcohol around too?!….well don’t ask me because I dont really remember much. But one thing I do remember is it was all a big blast!

It was a working saturday, but then this is exactly what some saturdays are meant to be – work deprived and alcohol imbibed.
Joined by close friends, family, tummy-happy food and gorgeous cocktails. Of course it was all Cointreau based since the people at Remy-Cointreau were crazy enough to give me a bottle and tell me to go nuts with it. It was everywhere, in the food, sangria, cocktails and even on our clothes and table covers by the end of it! And im proud to report that the bottle was devoured of its last drop that day.
