The summer is almost upon us and it’s time to go for some new wardrobe shopping. I was discussing a couple of days ago with a celebrity journalist the condition of high street fashion brands in Pakistan and one name that kept coming under “consistently good over the years” was Stoneage. I love the fact about them that they have churned out quality denim over the years and have been “consistent” with the quality of the clothes they are making. Continue reading Turning Up The Summer Heat With Stoneage
Everyday of our lives, in Pakistan, we are wondering so many things and so much is happening at the same time that it is hard to let these things go unnoticed. So obviously, these things end up influencing the kind of art coming from this region. You can see it in the pieces our artists are churning out at art exhibits, and you can see it in the poems our writers are writing. Even our novels are not free of the influence.
So naturally, it comes out in Fashion too. Continue reading Emraan Rajput’s Vision of Military Fashion
With groomswear industry dominating the menswear section of the fashion industry, it was good to see the bridal fashion weeks paying good attention to menswear this time around.

If you go back and look at the history of menswear, you will be seeing Deepak Perwani’s name a lot and look at the brand now and you’ll see it has established itself as a prominent womenswear brand now. But what came as a shocker was the announcement that Deepak Perwani will now be showcasing an only menswear collection at the A/W Fashion Pakistan Week. Continue reading DEEPAK PERWANI – Everything But the Girl
When it’s music’s biggest night, one would expect a lot of good choices for the women out there. Pop stars and fashion always go hand in hand, and when it’s the Grammy’s, then the competition gets even tougher. Male musicians also are the kind who know what their signature style is and over time have developed a look that’s definite to them.
Here’s my top picks from the Grammy’s red carpet Continue reading Best Dressed Men at the 2015 Grammy Awards
As the Mens Collections come to an end, I was left wondering about a lot of things. If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, you would probably know that I am in favor of innovation and creativity and tend to think of fashion in terms of personal expression and an embodiment of personal ideologies. With womenswear, it is easier to do that but when it’s menswear, it seems one cannot get out of the preformed ideas one has about menswear. But thanks to rebels, it’s changing. Yes, well, not exactly rebel off the charts kind, but slow evolution is what matters.
I think that this coat is really the kind where one can be formal with it and informal as well. Like it works with anything. You can wear it with a suit, or like me, without a suit jacket but get a more formal look to an otherwise casual outfit.
I kind of feel older wearing it, is this weird? I don’t know. I think it sort of makes me feel like this is it, that this is the kind of attire I’m transitioning on to. From very individualistic hipster to something so formal. Continue reading Outfit: The Long Coat
With Celine’s new campaign featuring Joan Didion, it became evident that writers and authors will always be an influence on the masses, and they have the power to stir things up whenever they want. Buzz Bissinger once wrote a piece for GQ Magazine where he told the world about his addiction to designer leather, and how Gucci even invited him over to show him around, and it was only because he had spent so much money on them. Writers, one way or another, have a hand in the fashion world through their own influences. They’re also celebrities, and they’re also the ones with money, and with fashion, money matters.
