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 almost becoming surreal. 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 […]

Internet Vs. The Business of Fashion (Weeks); Holographic Models in future; Conspicuous Consumption Vs. Conspicuous Frugality; Real Woman -Patricia Arquette at the Oscars; Elie Saab rocks!

Huff ‘n’ puff literally I have so much to write that it’s impossible to capture the essence of it in one subject line! OK, one at a time I have been asked by lot of my blog readers as to why there are so many frequent fashion weeks across the four major contributing fashion capitals of the world i.e. New York, London, Milan and Paris? Well, there is never a dull moment in fashion but the fashion weeks across four major fashion capitals is actually a biannual affair. Twice in an year (February for Autumn/Winter and September for Spring/Summer) fashion weeks are organized to help define trends for the coming season and they take place much in advance to enable buyers and retailers stock up just in time for the season. So when you think you have the world’s best wardrobe and all the latest trends..and you are done with sourcing and eventually gathering(buying) your priced sartorial possessions – you are made to believe that it may not be “the end of the shopping frenzy or updating your wardrobe” after all! C’est la vie! The most recent fashion week this month just concluded in New York NYFW AW15, followed by […]

Logo Affinity; London Collections: Men AW15 & The Golden Globe Awards; #JeSuisCharlie; Bye-bye Frida Giannini of Gucci, Welcome John Galliano of Maison Martin Margiela!

The real definition of Multitasking: I’m sipping on my favorite Caffè Nero (yes, with chocolate on top!) cappuccino and my mind is wandering like a pendulum..more like Ke$ha’s tik-tok but quietly humming Taylor Swift’s Blank Space (way cooler than Ke$ha’s tik-tok anyday) running on my current playlist. My mind wanders to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and all the parodies that this song ignited on the WWW(Bart Baker? Can’t seem to shake off that guy from my head!).. I am also trying to read a magazine but it doesn’t seem like much of a page turner. Then, suddenly it dawns on me that today, the London Collections: Men AW15 finally wraps up and I hurriedly Google to find the post-event reviews and all the analysis on collections. This post was almost finished in the late afternoon of Monday, 12th Jan’15! But, it only shows up on my blog on 13th Jan’15. Please don’t mind and carry on reading Frankly, reviews don’t matter as much I love to analyze the contrast when runway trends and divergent viewpoints of the designers’ clash on the runway and off it. Menswear is having a moment right now and this all makes one helluva grand show proclaiming Menswear […]
