Interesting Campaign by Diesel – ‘Chair Executive Officer’

Diesel launched an interesting campaign earlier this month. Diesel seems to enjoy challenging the ordinary and the conformity that is flooding social networks because again this time it’s not the usual job application that you find on LinkedIn, the position is actually of a Chair Executive Officer. This time neither an MBA degree nor financial skills will serve the purpose, “first of all, you have to be good at sitting,” says Diesel’s founder. Choosing a CEO is serious stuff. It involves skills, responsibilities and above all knowledge. Therefore, Renzo Rosso sends a message to the people of the Internet: “Our CEO has left, leaving an empty space in our hearts, but most importantly an empty chair.” The applicants will have to showcase their indisputable ability to sit in a way that is absolutely different from others through a picture or a video to be uploaded on Diesel’s Facebook page. The selected candidate will spend a week as the Chair Executive Officer at the DIESEL Headquarters, Italy. Occupying the most important chair in the company! Let us hope for the sake of the winner that her/his management is such a success that the brand decides to employ them full time!!     Release and Image Credits: PR- DIESEL / Reliance Brands Limited

Vogueistic Wearables, Louis Vuitton Series and London Design Festival!

I have been on a holiday. Cruising to the Nordics, Baltics all the way to Russia and finally culminating a fab holiday in Spain. Some more notes on my recent travels will be up soon on my blog as a photoblog because travel is to create memories.. not to be reduced to a text. This isn’t the end of the holiday season. Fyi.. NO E.F.F.I.N.G WAY! There is a lot more coming ..more exotic locations This also kind of explains why I haven’t been active on the blogging biosphere. Hopefully, I will be able to churn out some interesting stuff in the coming months for my readers whilst still being able to find time to work and play! Technology today is not only enhancing experience both virtually and real-time but in many ways also bridging the divide between virtual and real.The gap is fast diminishing between the rhetoric and reality albeit still figuring out the notion of human touch. With a proliferation of internet connected devices, Wearables are getting there i.e. at the point of human touch via a technology format where the need is replacing the gimmick du jour. Today Wearables are not about contextualising fashion but are about reinventing the traditional and conventional formats […]

Amsterdam – Beyond Heineken, Canals, Cannabis, Coffeeshops, Cycles + A tale of 3 Cities + The Bruce Jenner diaries + Androgynous future of fashion

I have been bitten but the travel bug in 2015!! Travel rules over fashion this year for me. There is a lot of fashion wisdom out there and following it can be a bit nerve wrecking! Sometimes keeping up with what’s really transitioning from the runways to the streets can be a daunting task. Also, I refuse to waste my time pondering over how I can display a thrilling demonstration of my fashion prowess amidst keen and informed readers of my blog and my extended social media diaspora – who seem already dazed and bewildered by the “too-much-information syndrome”! I just believe fashion is cyclic and is also socially determined (as suggested by the economist George Taylor).”What goes around…comes around” and that pretty much sums up my understanding of fashion. Besides the fact that I reside in truly one of the most fashion-conscious cities of the world! My love for London is a decade strong. London is home – a city where avant-garde laissez-faire carnival-isq fashion hedonism never stops. You can see abject simplicity to high-fashion complicity in every nook and corner of London ..no wonder, global fashion resides here.  Speaking of greatness, I must mention YOO – YOO is […]

Fashionating Twins – #SS15 revisited @ #TheRow and #DSQUARED2

I’m almost done and dusted with couple capers! Couples finally tying the knot and all the post-nupital-fun they seem to be having! Well, congrats is in order to couples who got hitched in 2014! A big year for the eternal-bachelor George Clooney who met his match in Amal Alamuddin (now, Amal Clooney)! Hopefully it’ll be happily ever after for you guys! All I am saying is that I can’t seem to deal with all the coupling-overdose in one big literal gulp!All the hoopla has sure led #kimye (Kim Kardashian & Kanye West) in the arms of the luxury French fashion house Balmain! Surely, one thing I learn here is that the more you are “out there” the more probability you will get to be “out here”!! Being constantly plastered across social media has immense benefits! But, the focal point of my post is the a pairing of a different kind. Here is officially my first post celebrating the oomph of real fashion rockstars and people I admire and people who fascinate me (wait, there are many, many more people I will be talking about, these 2 pairs on my list are just lucky to be the first ones). Picture: Popsugar, The […]
