This bracelet has a univer­sal de­sign and

dis­tinct per­son­al­ity, which is what makes it so

spe­cial. Eina Ah­luwalia at, ` 25,300 ap­prox,

` 4,500 Yes, prints are hot for au­tumn too, and give a cool break to stark

solids. Prashant Verma at It’s ul­tra fem­i­nine!

points. James Fer­reira at Ensem­ble,

` 19,800 Ev­ery­one must own a pair of metal­lic trousers. They’re

the per­fect in­gre­di­ent for a rock-chic vibe.

River Is­land, ` 2,400 ap­prox Navy, black and blue al­ways work,

es­pe­cially in win­ter. The sheer de­tail adds both beauty and lay­ers

to a look. Mor­phe by Amit Ag­gar­wal, ` 19,500 Love the box shape and wood and fab­ric de­tail­ing on this unique clutch. Rachna Reddy,

` 8,200 We like the hand­wo­ven fab­ric, its or­ganic na­ture, and cool struc­ture. This is the per­fect

day-to-night jacket, and we would wear it to a movie, cock­tail or a evening do.

Three lit­tle words: a fash­ion sta­ple. Mango, ` 4,590 Cropped jack­ets are per­fect for the In­dian win­ter, which is not bit­terly cold. Its awe­some-is­tic col­lar adds ex­tra magic. Anaikka by Kanika

The Flu­oro at cam­bridge­satchel., ` 8,400 ap­prox Gold car­ries on from last win­ter to this sum­mer,

and now to Au­tumn 2012, too. Un­der­stated, with its gold trim­mings and length, this dress stands out

on its own. Rahul Mishra,

` 12,250 Coloured pants are hit­ting the right chords. I vote for red be­cause it’s the per­fect tran­si­tion colour, and says ‘bold’ in not so many

words. Zara, ` 2,790

around world. Ed­i­tors, mod­els, fash­ion icons and

When I see a unique, cool and well-ex­e­cuted de­sign like this one, it makes me won­der, ‘How did the de­signer come

up with that?!’ Fendi box purse, price on re­quest

I love a dress that makes you day­dream. This one

re­minds me of a Mar­tian land where I cry tears of flflow­ers. And since flflow­ers don’t grow on Mars, I am now happy to have so many! See what I mean? It lit­er­ally makes your imag­i­na­tion go nuts!

Manish Arora, ` 2,08,100 ap­prox I be­lieve if you have some­thing to say, say it with

your clothes. Kallol’s edgy, witty work, helps do ex­actly that. Kallol Datta,

` 12,880

A one-piece jump­suit is the eas­i­est form of cloth­ing a girl can own. This piece lay­ered with a var­sity jacket, Un­der­ground UK creep­ers and a Mo­hawk, will make

for a good-girl­gone-rouge look. Pankaj & Nidhi,

` 31,500 Per­fect for the In­dian not-so-cold au­tumn, throw this hand­loom jacket over any short dress or out­fit, and it will lit­er­ally make

your look. James Fer­reira,

` 23,000 This neck­lace is just bad-ass

Wear any­thing or noth­ing with this clutch, it will still make a state­ment. Phillip Lim at my­, ` 36,300 ap­prox A great pair of flat boots with a tiny

de­tail (like the calf strap) works with dresses in sum­mer, and leg­gings in win­ter. Gucci, price on


The clas­sic trench gets a new, hip iden­tity

in this piece. Util­ity never goes out of fash­ion! Full Circle at, ` 11,899 ur­face de­tail­ing and feel­ing a piece in­stead of just see­ing it, ex­cites me. I love the lay­er­ing of ap­plique neons over pas­tels here.

Atsu at per­ni­aspop­up­shop.

com, ` 28,500 I think all of fash­ion is lean­ing to­wards com­fort and ease. Which is why sporty­chic is the trend to chan­nel right now. Giuseppe Zan­otti, price on re­quest

The colour­block­ing, sig­na­ture S&N pas­tels, and 3-D bow de­tail are

a win-win-win. Shivan Nar­resh,

Two things make this dress

a win­ner: the gor­geous tex­ture and the state­ment

mak­ing vibe. Mor­phe by Amit Ag­gar­wal, price on

re­quest Some­thing about dipdye makes me weak in the knees! I love the use of colour in an un­der­stated way, and Kabra nails it with this luxe silk piece. Anand Kabra, ` 9,000 I’ve been watch­ing a tonne of Board­walk Em­pire, and am in­spired by the flap­per trend. Fringes, beads and dropped waist­lines are pure ro­mance! Namrata Jo­shipura,

` 26,950

Don’t dread the tur­tle neck—the key is to opt for thin fab­rics in­stead of chunky ones. Wear with a pen­cil skirt or ba­sic jeans.

Mango, ` 1,990 I like to think of this as a ‘bad biker girl’ jacket. Smok­ing kills, and so will this fab­u­lous fifind.

Manish Arora, ` 1,44,000 ap­prox

This Ro­manesque choker has

un­con­ven­tional ap­peal. Plus, it’s in sil­ver, a colour that will work with many looks this win­ter. Del­fina Delet­trez, ` 1,44,000 ap­prox In­stead of lay­er­ing a sum­mer dress, pick a full-length knit dress and jew­ellery as the only ex­tras. Anand Kabra,

` 11,990

A cape-style cover-up is both mys­te­ri­ous and stand-out. This piece will look great teamed with both jeans or a

dress. Mor­phe by Amit Ag­gar­wal, ` 28,600 I’m not a big fan of min­audière

bags, but this emer­ald num­ber wins my vote. I imag­ine it work­ing well

with black, gold, sil­ver, and

cream. Fendi, price on

re­quest This pi­geon-chest tex­tured top will be fun to wear with jeans, or a skirt for a night out with friends. Anand Bhushan,

skirt or trousers for day. Es­pe­cially, ones with a hint of

neon! Adi­das Orig­i­nals,
