the luxury of less

THE FIRST TIME I REALISED THE TRUE MEANING OF BESPOKE was at a tony fashion event, with a guest list that read like the social register. My vertiginous high heels were so uncomfortable, they had shut my brain down. But my dress, which fit like a glove, felt like a ridiculously comfortable kaftan. At the end of the evening I thanked my companion, who also happened to be the designer of this incredible sheath. Against my many protests, Bibhu Mohapatra had taken a measuring tape to me with his trademark attention to detail. And the end result was a peerless outfit.But why am I surprised at the joys of made to measure? Bibhu reminded me that we grew up in a time when everything we owned was personalised. Our mothers…

what lies ahead

WHAT WILL BE INDIA’S ROLE IN DISRUPTING FASHION IN THE 21ST CENTURY? That’s a big question with even bigger ambitions. As the Indian fashion industry continues to respond to a growing consumer market, will its impact be felt only in sheer growth or will the country’s diverse cultural heritage have a role to play?The sari, of course, continues to inspire designers internationally from time to time. But its integral qualities of unstitched, adaptable draping are unlikely to have the kind of impact that the Japanese kimono had on mid 20th-century couture. While ethnic clothing is often posited as unique to India’s fashion industry, the dominance of power looms and Chinese imports undercuts any inherent claim to a cultural continuity that is somehow disruptive. They may be selling uniquely Indian silhouettes…

a little piece of paris

(ALL IMAGES COURTESY LOUIS VUITTON)A model spaceship installed in the middle of the Louvre—this play of old and new set the scene for Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2018 womenswear collection’s runway show. This season, Nicolas Ghesquière took inspiration from the “women who helped me make my choices and build my aesthetic.” These Parisian women prefer prim pumps, elegant day dresses, and slim, knee-length skirts over sneakers and track pants. The artistic director, however, has updated that elegant aesthetic to make it contemporary, exciting, and wearable, perfect for Louis Vuitton’s ever-expanding global audience for ready-to-wear, which, as of his month, will include India. Of the pieces that are coming to the country, we’ve got our eye on the quintessentially French bouclé jackets decorated with metal chains and brooches, the asymmetric halter tops…
