Etro S/S 2016: Menswear: Masculine yet Elegant : Milan Fashion Week

Keeping it multicultural, Etro’s spring- summer 2015 collection offered its signature paisley and floral motifs in an array of pieces ranging from jacquard topcoats and shirts to trousers. The ornate patterns were reminiscent of Aboriginal prints and were beautifully infused with the story of the collection.

Leather jackets and shorts, collarless and slim lapel jackets were an interesting addition to this summer offering. With a colour palette of pastel and pretty pink and fabrics such as chiffon and silk the new Etro man does not shy away from embracing his elegance.

Aishwarya goes completely wrong in gothic black at Prix de Diane Longines, France: “Sack the Stylist”

Awful! A serious case of Sack the Stylist moment! The Longine’s brand ambassador, Aishwarya Rai donned a Victorian gothic look while attending the Prix de Diane Longines in Chantilly today. I wonder what made her wear this ghastly straight out of the theatre look. And, what was her stylist trying to do?

First of all, the all black look does not complement the essence of the glamorous day time event. Secondly, the makeup, the hat, the mismatched nail colour – just inappropriate and in no way accentuates Aishwarya’s beauty. Experimenting with fashion is fun, and is required, but making it unpleasant, without any dash of creativity is not acceptable. What do you have to say? Do you like?

5 Indian Models to watch out for in the international fashion arena

The modelling industry is extremely unpredictable and notoriously difficult to get into. There are plenty of models who come and go every day. In this ever competitive industry only a very few can survive and are able to make a mark for themselves. It becomes all the more difficult for a non white model to compete in an international fashion circuit, especially when more than half of the models are white. Indian Models like Ujjwala Raut and Lakshmi Menon were the first ones to break all the ethnic stereotypes in a global fashion scene, setting a new benchmark.

It is wonderful to see how a new breed of Indian origin models are becoming the rising faces and have grabbed the right kind of attention with their great looks, poise, impressive work and electrifying presence. And, yes, to a certain extent these fresh faces are addressing the industry’s diversity issues too. Click the link (style.com) to read how these five Indian models are busy breaking all the set fashion conventions.
