The show started to the beats of temple bells and a couple performing an erotic dance. It was as if a couple from one of the Khajuraho temple sculptures had come alive. It was easy to guess, the theme was Kamasutra! We are not going to discuss his comment on calling Kamasutra the most celebrated Hindu text and all that. Let’s talk about the clothes from this collection. Well, they were pretty, they were vibrant, but nothing about them exclaimed sensuality and Kamasutra except for those conical bustier blouses. But they too rather reminded me of Jean Paul Gaultier’s pointy ‘Blond ambition look’ for Madonna. Take a look at the pictures and decide for yourself.
Let’s admit it, us girls have a thing for bow-ties and men sporting one. In fact, I think we have a thing for bows, period. A few weeks back a friend of mine asked me to do a post on different ways of rocking a bow/bow-tie.
So, here’s a quick slideshow. Enjoy!
Last Sunday, after Kesh‘s stand up gig we went to our restauranteur friend Rahul’s lad pad for an after party. Apart from great wine, mad conversation and late night pizza, the surprise of the evening was his pair of craps. 80s influenced sunglasses from an up and coming brand called, well CRAP. When he told me about it I wasn’t sure what to expect but these glasses are nothing but an eye-full of fun (I know there’s no term like that). Of course we fooled around a little, here are some pics:
Sunglasses: CRAP, Violet silk balloon-sleeve tunic: Isolde, Black leggings: H&M, Orange knotted slingbacks: Clarks (pic: my own)
C'mon we're Indians, we all love a little drama! (pic: my own)
Take a closer look. (pic:my own)
Sarah Coles seems to love 'em.
Obviously I was too curious to not look up CRAP on the interweb. So I did. I found some great pieces in their look-book. Here are a few:
They've got a fun thing going.
Rahul has the same black glasses... now we know why!
Perfect beach glasses!! Make me wanna book a ticket to Bali right away.
You can browse through more designs at www.crapeyewear.com and you can easily buy them online from their webstore. A part of me is saying may be this isn’t really my style and the other half is saying “What CRAP!”
