The Little Style Statement

All good things come in small packages, right? And kids are exactly that when it comes to our fashion sensibilities.

With the fashion week just up, as we sat down with our feet soaked in hot water (now, that would be nice, wouldn’t it?) and trying to sink back in to our usual world, we all came to one conclusion which we know (or believe) all of us would agree to – Kids owning the runway with little fashionistas strutting away in their cute ballerinas and the juniors showing their savvy style in tees, bermudas and loafers is something totally adorable.
Too bad we didn’t see any this time.

p.s. The fashion runway certainly makes for an amazing birthday party theme for kids.

From the Trench to the Wardrobe

1. Humphrey Bogart, Casablanca 2. Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau

Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther series have all looked the part thanks to their trench coats.

First worn by the soldiers in the First World War, they have come a long way to become essential and aesthetic items in today’s wardrobe. And even though they still may not be very popular in India, Manou, of the ‘wearabout’ blog, photographs them strolling surprisingly on the streets of Mumbai.

Christopher Bailey of Burberry has curated the photographs for the exhibition, ‘The Art of the Trench’ taking place at the Oberoi, Gurgaon from the 3rd to the 12th of February, 2012.

Whether or not, the exhibition ushers the average Indian to wear the coat is an unfinished story. However, Manou’s photographs might serve as a hint to the future of the trench in India.

How Do I Look?

Won’t you let me try on those
Black thick-rimmed glasses?
Oh I’ve spotted them this whole night.” 

I heard this song by Aubrey Wood the other day and it really got me thinking. Could those frames still be in fashion? Or is this secretly an ode to her professor?

She goes on to sing, it’s the ‘artistic type’ who wears them. Well, I know that when worn with a casual nonchalance the nerd becomes the most fashionable man. And it seems the most fashionable men are becoming nerds. So it becomes a really confusing affair. Justin Timberlake, Ashton Kutcher, Johnny Depp, Ranbir Kapoor – they all seem to be trying the ‘look’.

So, are those black thick-rimmed glasses truly so fashionable? Or is the once bullied nerd with poor eyesight the hottest dude in town? I wonder what Aubrey has to say.
