Because Krumping is so last season...

Originating in Paris, France, Tecktonik is a form of dance based on a blend of hip hop and techno styles, borrowing heavily from cyberpunk. Hardstyle is the main music style associated with Tecktonik. However, it has also become a prominent style of dancing to Electro house.

Kylie- Numero Magazine.



Kylie in the May issue of French magazine Numero, styled by Jean-Paul Gaultier. A tag on one of the pictures reads:

It is our own Jean Paul Gaultier who has the honor to dress the tiniest of big names in pop, the sparkling Kylie Minogue. On the eve of the European tour for her latest album X, the Australian singer unveils three costumes.

The second picture is [rather] reminiscent of Madonna's biker chic look shot by Mondino in 1990, used for the "Justify My Love" CD Single.

SUPERFLAT MONOGRAM- Takashi Murakami for Louis Vuitton.

"Blowjob" by Andy Warhol.

When artists make porn.

MISSHAPED.






Started in 2002, Misshapes defined an era of hip- young New Yorkers with its soundtrack of almost-new music [Bloc Party, Arcade fire] tinged with old gay classics [Cher], alongwith skinny jeans and asymmetrical haircuts. The party [sadly] came to end five years later, but not before having some of the hippest, most cutting-edge DJs, models, rock stars and what have yous gracing its [legendary] white wall snapshots [ everyone from Agyness Deyn to Cindy Sherman and Hedi Slimane]. Photographs by Scott Meriam.

Before Madonna was like a virgin....

This one's from the archives: unwashed hair, Nefertiti eyes, plastic bangles and that infectious schoolgirl laugh. Interesting mentions include [amongst many others] going to England [how prophetic], Warhol, Vivienne Westwood and an upcoming record [aptly] titled "Like A Virgin".

Vintage Linda!







Found some extremely vintage Linda Evangelista from Harpers Bazaar Italia in 1984. Its kind of funny but sort of cool. Photography by Bill Connors.

Sahil hearts Indicoolness


A little present from my friend Sahil Shroff!

In My Shoes!



I finally bought something that I had really wanted to buy for a while, its not the exact one but pretty close. They are Pierre Hardly Hi-top sneakers and they rock my boat. I would have loved the multicolored one but sigh, it’s a limited edition and not available in Dubai.

Guess who's Back???



So I’m finally back in town and strangely enough it feels great. Not that I dislike Dubai but it gives me that very dry vibe, everything out there looks manmade and somehow feels very unnatural . Nevertheless it’s a great place for shopping and partying and boy, did I shop.And who knows, maybe in the near future I might be working there.
On another note, the view from my friend’s apartment where I was staying had the most fantastic view and it’s at the Dubai Marina, which is apparently “the” place to stay. T’was rather nice and close by is the Buddha bar where we went for dinner, unfortunately I forgot my camera so I have no shots of the beautiful place (the men’s loo looks fantastic but don’t get me wrong. I mean strictly for urinal purpose).

You know you are a full blown fashion victim when even your “apple a day” has its own designer box. That’s exactly what Herm├ęs wants you to be with their specially designed apple case. Its all very cute and all but I mean really, do we need this also??

Trembled-Blossoms by prada

I really have no words to describe this, please see for yourself!!!

New Girl On The Block





Well not exactly, Smita Lasrado has been modelling for maybe two three years but I never quite liked her until last Lakme Fashion Week where I thought she looked amazing and tranformed herself so well. I met here again this season for Saybasachi's show looking super cool and then she tells me she's not based in India anymore but in Paris. Shes trying the circuit next season, I hope shes rocks Paris Fashion Week. LUCK LUCK LUCK Smita!!! ( Some of her ramp shows for Rakesh Aggarwal, Nachiket Barve and Wendell Rodricks last season) She is right now with Elite India.
Update: Sorry she is not with Elite anymore

Lakme Fashion Week


I caught these two ELLE girlies just on their way to the shows. I thought the contrast of them together was pretty interesting and click worthy.

Best Collection goes to Sabya!











My favourite collection at the Fashion week was Sabyasachi’s collection. At this stage where there are so many Sabya wannabes he still managed to be so very unique and true to his signature style. The silhouettes were more fitted than his usual free flowing stuff but not to say there weren't a few of them loose thingys. The set was beautiful and the lighting for a change had a beautiful yellow light instead of the usual washed out white lighting. Miss Carol and Miss Bhavna obliged to pose for me outside the venue with their full make up and hair done.(Ramp pictures courtesy Rediff.com)

Lakme Finale




Designer Wendell Rodricks for his finale collection seemed to be a little too inspired by YSL. The shoes have an uncanny resemblance to the YSL SS08 collection.
