STONEAGE A/W’14-15: A Cool Way to Handle the Chill

Fall is upon us and the air is beginning to get chilly. It’s about time we went out while a little bit of sun is shining and stock up on the winter wear that makes our wardrobe stand out. Of course, when walking downtown, one would wanna look absolutely fabulous, and would want to look good when going for a cup of coffee, but there is a certain feeling associated with the winter air that somehow, i feel, needs to be translated into what one is wearing. And good for us, that Stoneage offers us exactly that. Continue reading

Always Be Prepared

“You can never be over dressed, or under educated.” says Oscar Wilde. And he is right. The thing about style, is that it always depends on the occasion. Being appropriately dressed (even if it’s overdressed) is something a style seeker must always be ready for. Also, what good is style if you’re not up on substance? This week’s link roundup gets you ready for all of that so you’ll never be caught off guard. This season anyway. Continue reading

NYFW S/S’15: When Consumers Direct Fashion

Fashion is one of those industries that is considered frivolous, self indulgent, and highly disconnected from the real world. People call it fake, superfluous, and something not for the masses. But what they forget to look at, is that fashion is so much more more than sparkly clothes and spotlighted threads. It’s about the much ignored part of everyone’s lives; growing up. And if time has shown us anything is that fashion has grown up to be something much much more than a grasp-able thing for a select few. Now it is for everyone. Now, everyone can contribute to it.

Chameleon by Deepak&Fahad – A Story in Review

There was a time when the sun ruled the world. The trees grew, the fruit was was fresh, and the grass was amazingly green. I used to get up in the morning and feel the love radiating from the earth. Everything was so bright, so beautiful, so love-filled. And in turn, i fell in love over and over, and with everything i saw; Love at every other sight. Love at first sight is overrated. You learn to fall in love with everything every time you look at it. It’s the harmony of the disoriented colors, they fit together like a puzzle meant to fall in love with. Continue reading

Top Menswear Picks from Lakmé Fashion Week

With the growth in the menswear market across the globe, i would expect there to be more menswear out there in the region, but it’s just so…sad that there’s not enough care to go around.

With Lakme Fashion Week happening a couple of days ago, I did notice that some of the menswear pieces stood out all at once. While it’s very obvious that womenswear designers will also churn out a menswear piece or two, but some will handle both of them with the same detail one pays to womenswear in the sub-continent. And one saw that transition of the conceptualization of the collection transcending into menswear pieces that the designers showed.

Here are my top Menswear picks from the Lakme Fashion Week. Continue reading

Outfit – Bow Tie

InstagramCapture_05ee95e4-e28e-42be-8c1a-d52edf1bd407_jpgHere I am wearing the STONEAGE JEANS’ bowtie. It’s a woven bow tie I had been contemplating showing to the world, but how. I had known for long that I wanted it to be this shirt. So I just went along with it. And the brown woven belt is such a look/life saver.

In the back, you can see my room. Will do a detailed post on that once I get the time to set it. You know, boys will be boys, and our rooms will be messy!

OUTFIT – AIR TIE

BvhQjGKCUAAUY9kIt’s hard to have a formal look and stand out. I really like this shirt for it is plaid, and plaid is such an amazing pattern for this fall. And the air tie is the perfect tie to be sporting in order to look preppy, but not too uptight. If you’re going sans tie, make sure you either get a pocket square or a waistcoat with your jacket, otherwise the outfit would look really incomplete.

Fickleness of Weirdness in Fashion

cd31edc830e3f3fa785cdcff688de32cIt scares me how self absorbed everyone is becoming. I think a lot of it stems from the fact that our generation wants every one of them to be special. We want to make history. Every one of us wants to leave a mark. And this makes us self absorbed to a a point where it just becomes unbearable.

I have been observing a lot of people like this. Specially the people in fashion. In fashion, everyone aspires to be “some thing”, something so different and unique. Uniqueness is what a lot of individuals in fashion strive for. And in this quest of trying to be different, there’s some personality traits of the people that get washed out in monotony. And that monotony is how they try and break the stereotype, all of the guys, and in turn end up creating a new stereotype that I sometimes question if it is the right way to go about it. Being unique is awesome, but somewhere along the way of trying to be different we get lost in the uniqueness, we lose ourselves. Continue reading
