Time and again, this fashion house proves itself to be one of the most innovative ateliers. Taking away from the dull norms of cliche silhouettes & styles, this designer label pushes itself to progress as a fashion pioneer; giving the people not just what they want, but also what they need.

A brand,synonymous with confidence, elegance and poise; it leaves no stone un-turned to seek inspiration for their exceptional creations. Their designs are a perfect marriage of the Indian ethnic and the modern contemporary. 

And since the Indian wedding season is around the corner, I thought it best to show you some of my favorites from their recently unveiled collection 'Bride & Baraat 2017'.

INDIAN IS IN : NItesh Hub Pune

Nitesh Hub is spread across one million square foot, set amidst prime realty of Koregaon Park, it houses a brigade of world renowned fashion & lifestyle labels. Offering a range of stores that cater to all : designer labels and mutli-brand stores, a play zone and a cinema.

The wedding season is around the corner and as are the enumerable Indian cultural festivals. And therefore, an 'Ethnic Shopping Spree' is definitely in order. Even though having enough is never truly enough when one talks about clothes, this time I've chosen to limit the number of looks to four of my foremost picks for this Ethnic Style Guide. 

Celebrating the 'Indian Is In' campaign with Nitesh Hub, i created four looks from their stores.

A home for every weekend.

Wouldn’t it be great to get out of the city, escape over the weekend and rejuvenate yourself?
After a stressful week, all you want to do is to relax and unwind. What better place to do it than in a serene pool, with a cup of coffee, surrounded by greenery and enjoying a conversation with the one who is closest to you. It may seem like a dream but it could be a reality. If you agree with me then it’s time for you to go and get yourself a weekend home.

Only a short drive from Pune, Lodha Belmondo is 100 acres of a beautiful property, to which my feeble words probably won’t do justice.

Signal Hill Cape Town

Photo by Mikhail

Cape Town has been on my travel bucket list since a very long time and why not? Cape Town has it all : beaches, mountains, harbours and a laid back yet vibrant city life. The city is spread out from the foot of the magnificent ‘Table Mountain’ to the beautiful pristine beaches. A city you will be talking about for months to everyone you meet as you take back so much visual beauty in your memory. This was Surf's and my first time in Cape Town and we just couldn't get enough. 

Meeting Mikhail was truly one of the great things that happened on my visit to Afrika Burn 2017. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but also a most gracious host. Keeping to his words, he showed us around Cape Town and all its sights & splendours. Continuing our shoot from Bo-Kapp we drove up to Signal Hill.

Le blanc c'est chic

Le Blanc c'est chic!
I spent a day at the luxurious property of JW Marriott Hotel in Pune the other day and nothing matches luxury than an elegant all white minimalist look. The hotel property is very picturesque, especially the poolside with lined palm trees and breezy open spaces. I could definitely spend the whole day lounging here. Also the luxe rooms on the executive floor has a stunning view of the city from the huge glass window. J'adore! Does make for a perfect luxurious stay to relax and unwind. 

Shoes can make or break your outfit, and with so many options to choose from, the styling possibilities are endless. The unique footwear trend has been dubbed by Vogue as the "nothing shoes," and it has quickly become the It style of the season.

BO-KAAP by Mikhail Motala

Tucked away under the slopes of Signal Hill, formerly known as the Malay Quarter, this bright and colourful neighbourhood has a rich Cape Malay culture with roots as old as Cape Town itself. The Brightly colored homes and romantic cobble stoned streets of Bo-Kaap are just fascinating and so dramatically different from the rest of Cape Town.

I met Mikhail for the first time at Afrika Burn and we instantly hit it off. As he is a photographer based in Cape Town, he promised to show us around the city and a photoshoot was inevitable. 
Bo-Kaap was our first stop. 
Just the bright colors of Bo-Kaap put us all in a good mood and we spent about an hour walking though the lovely lanes of this neighbourhood. Here i am sharing some of the amazing captures by Mikhail.
