Sisley Spring Summer 2015

We are going the black and yellow route with Sisley’s Spring Summer 2015 Collection.  These pieces are absolutely fabulous. While some would give your personality an elegant cum sophisticated touch, the others would prove ideal for the ultimate sexy look. These are our picks as they are not only ultra comfortable but very trendy as well. And just when you are getting bored with too much black in your wardrobe, some splash of yellow would do wonders. If you already haven’t,  then it is time that you give their SS’15 stuff a serious look.  While we have stuck to black and yellow with some white- you should figure your colour palette soon too!

Here comes #MyFabWishlist…

Think Christmas, and we already have our wishlist ready for Santa. I am no different, I too have been for long wanting few things which are quite high on the fashion quotient. The look I am going to share is what I am already imagining in my closet. You would agree with me when I say this season is more about brunches, hence this look. Whether its the shirt or the pumps, all these products look comfortable yet stylish. And when there is a cool breeze, you could always carry a cardigan or a nice floral jacket along. For me it is one of those impressive and sophisticated looks and the best part being, they are just a click away as they are all available on faballey.com…

Luxury Anyone?

Luxury is anything that cannot be bound by seams of time and money. It can be anything from sipping coffee on a cold day while being snuggled in a warm blanket or just spending a lazy day at home or how about luxury that transcends accessibility and defines exclusivity; such as buying a personal jet or owning a luxury estate.

The latter mostly comes with a hefty price tag and you cannot go wrong with the choices you make. In a time when India`s luxury market is growing at the rate of 255 million dollars every year, it is important to have media channels that educate people on the same and help make right choices.

Talking about media channel, we want to introduce to our readers India`s very new online magazine- The Luxe Café, which does the job of informing pretty well. Here you cannot expect to read amateurish content as most of it is written by field experts or the people themselves who set luxury trends.

So, if you are actually planning to buy a personal business jet, then this e-magazine should be your bookmarked information channel.

The Luxe Cafe

If so far we have been sounding biased towards what men look for, then let`s strike a balance with serving women too. The magazine has a beautiful section of wellness, fashion and lifestyle as well where you will find big names such as Tarun Tahiliani talking directly to readers about dos and don’ts of a wedding trousseau. One story that we think might particularly be of interest to a lot of women is about a spa that will make you look good after pregnancy. Well, that does sound like much needed luxury!

The Many Different Categories It Offers

The magazine is editorially directed by former journalist, Manisha Mayur Shekhar who believes in making luxury accessible to everyone who desires it. And the online magazine seems like a perfect way of doing so as internet is quickly penetrating into tier 1 and 2 cities and towns of India. In no time the magazine will become a common platform for those who deliver luxury and those who demand it.

Well, we at Helipad on Heels love to promote anything and everything that takes people closer to fine living. With that thought we leave you with The Luxe Café to explore on your own.

What made the night a truly enjoyable one was some great music by Burberry Acoustic musician Roo Panes and local musician Winit Tikoo performed live at the event.

Sadly, I could not stay till Tikoo´s performance but Roo Pane completely captivated me. If you too love the melodious chords of guitar being blended with some soulful vocals, then you can listen to him at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGP-TnIoejk

Apart from all the fun, I also enjoyed checking out the collection displayed at the store. Some of the things that I completely love from the Spring/Summer 14 collection are below.

IBFW Day 1

India Bridal Fashion Week 2013 is on and we are busy with attending the shows and satiating our fashion cravings.

First day as most of us know saw enough chaos and delay. There was gossip that Kangana Ranaut, the showstopper for JJ Valaya caused the ruckus as a result of being unprofessionally late. However, that is not something we much care about. Let´s see what the first day openers JJ Valaya and Shantanu and Nikhil had to show us.
Starting with JJ Valaya, his collection,‘The Maharaja of Madrid’ drew inspirations from Spain. The show interestingly started with the music of birds chirping in the background and a male model playing a trumpet on a ship that was strategically placed in the middle. This was followed by kathakali dancers in synchronization with another dancer in a red gown who did a Spanish foot tapping dance. The setup and music composition clearly indicated the cultural fusion.
The collection saw use of laces, headgears, coats over sarees, ivory, huge fringes, floral prints and tule. My personal favourite were the blue tule gowns. There was also velvet to be seen like last year. In fact Kabir Bedi who was one of the showstoppers walked the ramp in royal velvet shervani with gold work. The show ended with Kangana Ranaut wearing a floor sweeping lehenga in gold work and paisley patterns. She also spotted a turban adding to the princess like look.

 The second show was by the stylish duo, Shantanu & Nikhil who with their collection, ´To Die For´, defined the renaissance period with a modern twist. The silhouettes were fresh with the classic opulence of gold work all over. The collection overall reflected femininity and softness. The collection had luxurious gowns, lehenas, anarkalis and all that the bride of today can ask for. My pick from the collection would be the the use of peplum tops over lehengas. The show was closed by Miss Canad, Seher Biniaz who wore a soft blush pink colour evening gown with beautiful use of French Chantilly lace. Image
