India Today - - COVER STORY -

The Shan­tanu and Nikhil store is an ode to the de­signer duo’s ex­otic fu­sion of vin­tage with con­tem­po­rary and a feast for lux­ury- hun­gry eyes. The store is done up with rich wood­work and dra­matic light­ing, de­signed by young ar­chi­tect duo, Rishita Das and Rushda Hakim from Mum­bai. But don’t be in a hurry, stroll around the jali- work niches in the walls hous­ing the clothes or take a seat on the com­fort­able couch to watch the screen run­ning clips from the de­signer duo’s fash­ion shows. Shan­tanu and Nikhil’s fu­sion style— putting to­gether In­dian fab­rics with western sil­hou­ettes— is un­mis­tak- able in their lat­est Fall Win­ter col­lec­tion that is in­spired by the Re­nais­sance pe­riod and rein­ter­preted for con­tem­po­rary sen­si­bil­i­ties. Ogle at sharply cut sil­hou­ettes and ubiq­ui­tous gold de­signs, the new black of the sea­son ac­cord­ing to the duo, on the gar­ments or big flared lehen­gas and gowns in frothy nets with fu­sion el­e­ments. IN­SIDER TIP If you re­ally like a lehenga but feel that the work is too heavy, the same out­fit can be cus­tom- made for you as a toned down ver­sion. MUST PICK The white net gown with gota work AT Third floor, KVR Hold­ings, Road No 36, Ju­bilee Hills TEL 65550456
