In Chola

For a latest appearance of hers, Kriti teamed a H&M tank with a pin-striped vest and pants, both from Chola. Multiple necklaces, assorted rings and a pair of matching sandals rounded out the actor’s look.

There’s no doubt, Kriti wears her separates well. That said, wish she had opted for a glossy, softer lip color instead. Or had just worn her hair in either a knot or ponytail. As is, the hair and lip color together seemed too harsh against the easy separates.

The Seven Somethings

While many of us are still struggling with the February Already syndrome, India’s first fashion week of the year has come and gone. Held at Mumbai’s JioGarden from February 1- 5, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 transported me to a mostly Mai Tai state of mind. I say mostly because sometimes I found myself in a sangeet.

Anyway, a little over a week later and here are the seven things that I still find myself thinking about…

1. You Go Gen Next!
Starring a bunch of talented designers, LFW’s Gen Next Show kickstarts each edition. Some of these debutants go on to launch super successful labels, others win coveted awards and a few manage to do both. Two labels that caught my eye this season were Soumodeep Dutta for his unmistakable Bengal school of fashion vibe and Poochki for their billowing breezy separates.

2. The Exploding Galaxy
Not the Samsung phones but just the ridiculous number of stars that descend down on one fashion week. (The ridiculous number of fashion weeks is a whole other column). Sushmita Sen, Bipasha Basu, Tabu, Diana Penty, Malaika Arora Khan, Daisy Shah, Padma Lakshmi. Sophie Choudry, Vaani Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Nimrat Kaur, Preity Zinta, Swara Bhaskar, Ayesha Takia… Showstopper. Overkill.

3. I Need Some AM.IT In My Life
Patola fused into plastic in AM.IT by Amit Aggarwal’s collection aptly titled Seamless. His pieces occupy the top 10 spots in my wishlist. Discarded saris, signature metallics and green means (and end) of fashion, this collection makes the right noises and looks equally fabulous. Now if only I can pre-order one of those dramatic pieces. And then find an OMG enough place to wear it to.


4. DeBo IS A Thing
Thanks to my blogger friends Priyanka and Payal who very helpfully coined the acronym DeBo (Desi Bohemian ICYMI), I am now convinced more than ever that DeBo is legit. Especially since nothing else seems to describe some looks from Label Ritu Kumar’s Maharaja Pop.

At Divya Dutta’s book ‘Me and Ma’ launch, Sonali was photographed in Chola. A pop of bright lip color and Saint Laurent sandals finished out the look. Chola‘s oversized/boxy aesthetic might not be for everyone but we like what we see! Sonali wears the separates well.

Neha did black and white at the Filmfare Awards wearing a cotton top and a black pinstripe full-skirt, both from Chola. I loved this look for two reasons. A) It was so unconventional and unexpected. B) You’d think with the dramatic bow, the long pearl layered necklace would seem overkill and yet it seemed to fit right in.

Gah, I wish Filmfare would share red carpet pics with the rest. (Grrr!)
