What We Wear: Kungawa

We call her Kun and she is a princess, a real one. And we make jokes about how she has everyone’s heads cut off. But she is really the sweetest thing, a lost romantic with her easy feminine flair. She sketches well and expresses what she doesn’t with them.

“Usually my style is very casual but when I go out I prefer classic chic. I love the floral print on this top because it’s like Summer bloom. You know, it’s not on your face; it’s very subtle with it’s soft vintage charm.”

Working at Sher Singh is: “The best part about working with Sher Singh is the people. And it is the people who make the company for me. I can say that I have found the nicest people I could work with.”

All White

White is the colour of purity. White is the colour of peace. And white looks good on everybody.

Spring might be all about colours but it’s not a bad idea to surprise your wardrobe with a flash of white this season. Clearly, we are obsessed.

Shop Sher Singh Whites for him and for her.

Front Row Captured

Imagine our surprise when we saw the similarity between the sportscaster, Erin Andrews’ dress and our Alex dress.

The Alex Dress and Erin Andrew

Erin was recently spotted sitting next to Kelly Osbourne, Kate Mara and Shay Mitchell at the front row at a Badgley Mischka show, in her neon orange one shouldered dress.

Fashion trends must be getting really global as the coincidence here is uncanny.

Coral

Corals are marine animals. Corals are rocklike gatherings of these animals or their skeletons, forming an island or reef. The hard skeletons of red corals are polished to a shiny gloss and these are used as gemstones. And Coral is a reddish or pinkish shade of orange.

In Finding Nemo, Coral was Nemo’s mother, who got eaten by the barracuda along with her eggs. We shed a few tears but were comforted to know that at least Nemo survived.

After beheading her, Perseus placed Medusa’s head on the riverbank while washing his hands. When he recovered her head, he saw that her blood had turned the seaweed into red coral.

The not so popular Coral, from the fifth season of Baywatch, has a fight with Stephanie. Coral is notoriously loading explosives onto the boat and Stephanie doesn’t like that. Of course, Coral knocks her unconscious.

Jessica Alba, Milla Jovovich, Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto – They all love Coral.

For us, Coral is our second Spring inspiration.

Model Talk: Carol

At first, we didn’t think she was Indian. Wearing a short mustard dress with purple leggings, she came in to our studio today. A little shy, the Nagaland born model is all smiles as she tells us a little bit about herself, her style and her Bollywood debut.

Q. Did you always want to be a model?
A. I’ve been modeling for about three years now. I started when I came to Delhi for my bachelors. As a child, I wanted to become a doctor.

Q. Tell us about your style.
A. Effortless and feminine.

Q. What would we find you wearing when you’re not modeling?
A. A plain white tee and blue jeans.

Q. How is it for someone like you, with Asian features, to be modeling in mainstream Indian Fashion?
A. The market in India is such that they mostly look for Indian or foreign features. But that’s changing slowly. It hasn’t been easy for me but it’s been a good experience.

Q. As a model, do you pout or smile?
A. Well, I prefer a very relaxed look. I like it when it’s spontaneous and natural.

Q. And, you’re acting in Bollywood?
A. (laughs) Yes, the film’s called Kya Super Kool Hain Hum. I’m basically playing the role of a Japanese girlfriend.

Q. Heels or flats?
A. Flats, I think. I don’t really like wearing heels but I have to when I’m modeling.

Q. Last song you heard on your iPod?
A. Cool by Gwen Stefani.

Q. What’s your idea of the ideal date?
A. (giggles) I’ll think about it and tell you later.

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.

Photographed by Manou: 1. Manish Malhotra 2. Neha Dhupia 3. Karan Berry

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.
