Christian Cota Spring 2012 RTW.

I wasn't very excited to go through Christian Cotas collection this time. Whilst I love the colours, the silhouettes do not seem to flatter even the models. Let alone real life women with a chunk of mass around them. So how will this collection transpire from runway to real life? It's all a little questionable to me, really but I'm trying not to hate it only because one never really knows. And some of the garments do have some potential.
I am, however, LOVING the aqua green shoes.

Vogues Fashions Night Out- India promo.

This is brilliant.
A dear friend of mine who works over at Condé Nast's Traveller Magazine was featured in the Vogue website in promotion of it's Fashions Night Out initiative.
Neville Bhandara, seen here alongside the likes of Anaita Shroff and Edward Lalrempuia to name a few, is just one of the select few chosen to be on their promotional shoot. So you bet it's an honour. With his own unique style Neville took the Gaurav Gupta and Manish Malhotra for FNO T-shirts and played around with other pieces of clothing he may have been given for the shoot or things that owns himself. even.
In the group shot, you will find him in a grey Gaurav Gupta T-shirt with white skinnies, pair of strappy sandals, a dark grey vest and a fedora. Perfect way to define the year long summer Bombay faces.
In the other image, he's seen taking a slightly less conventional route by opting for a pair of pants of a unique shade of green which was in turn, teamed with the black Manish Malhotra for FNO T-shirt and a Tarun Tahiliani for FNO tote.
The versatility of the T-shirts does play an important role in how well put together his looks are, however, to be able to tone down the very 'elaborate' print of the T-shirt and making it easy on the eyes, can be a task for some. And Neville along with the others, steer away from any form of discomfort to the eyes.
Check out this link to see how the others styled their looks! But as of now, this post is just dedicated to my friend Neville who as a favour in return to me, will be posting up pictures of his amazing trip to London this summer where he hung out with whom could perhaps be THE most amazing person he's ever know. Ever. Me.

(Ever)
Right?
