Modern Legacy 

Let's start by saying we are your Fans Shruti Bheda! 

Totally mesmerized and captivated by your personality that encapsulates the concept of modernity without having to let go of the past. Taking the traces from our human heritage, our native roots, the ancestral  legacy along and make it a part of your modern being brings out a unique individual, like no other. A time traveller who has been there, THEN and is here, NOW.
Shruti Bheda
We don't know if its the Native American braided hairstyle, the Indian tribal nose-pins on both the sides-seen on the Chattisgarhi tribal women, the minimal pastel colour blocked top (we love the colours!) and skirt, the silver metal-plate choker, the cross body chain jewellery that Beyonce wears a lot!, the backpack, or the heavy duty traveller boots, that give Shruti the power that she exudes merely by her presence.
Shruti Bheda
It could also be the mysterious eye and lip make-up or the absence of it (you figure!) or simply her deep drawing gaze......Shruti is an accessories designer.

Refined Proportions

When men show the confidence while choosing their attire and are ready to play with proportions fashion becomes fun. Marv D'Souza shows us his play of proportions with a long shirt and very interesting draped pair of pants.
Marv D'Souza
Marv wears this longish short sleeves shirt, buttoned-up, in washed out denim with muted ethnic aztec chest print and redefined oversize proportions with the length, the pocket as well as the sleeves that is worn rolled up. He pairs it with this black and white checkered pattern pair of pants that looks as comfortable as the statement it makes. It sits somewhere between a pair of trousers and our very own dhoti using pleating and ruching .
Marv D'Souza
A washed out pair of casual shoes in pastel orange adds a pop of color to the attire of this quirky casual look. Marv is a stylist with Miss Malini.

The Bespectacled Lass

Neoprene is the newest textile to invade our wardrobes recently. A Sportswear and performance fabric, is now being seen fashioned into tops, skirts, dresses and even suits! A confirmation of the sportswear going mainstream trend that we have talked about earlier.

Street Style Diaries - Longrei

Infused Native

Manipur is a land of rich crafts and deeply entrenched tradition of music, dance, and a heightened sense of aesthetic awareness that touches every sphere of a Manipuri's life. The pottery, the reed and bamboo crafts, the jewelry all have the power to mesmerize.

Meeting Longrei was an affirmation to the unique artisan sensibilities that he brings to his accessories that he crafts out of materials native to him and to Manipur.
Longrei
Longrei shows his preference for black by dressing on a monochromatic color scheme with his short sleeve henleys, a pair of leather+knit paneled joggers and heavy duty Doc Martin ankle length boots. It absolutely works as his accessories shine through!
Longrei
His unique undercut with a long locks at the back hairstyle is held by this amazing pair of hair-pins fashioned with leather, beads and feathers. It brings such unique tribal infused aesthetics to these relevant and modern pieces. We love the dream-catcher neck piece that adorns his neck!
Longrei
His mirrored aviators, bracelets, studded biking glove and his looped in accessories add a rawness to this amazingly crafted and thought about masculine BIKER look. Longrei shows a perfect way to all the men who love accessories, but are afraid. What we love the most of infusion of the native with the modern.

90's Revival

Crop tops cropped up everywhere last summer as a result of our desire to revisit the past, the 90's to refresh our wardrobe, and we did bring you a post on how to do it right with examples. Hope you added to the crop top revolution by adding a couple to your wardrobe. 

Another key piece from the 90's were the dungarees, mostly in denim then, washed, distressed in all possible ways and hugely popular. They brought out a very casual and playful attitude.

Mansi Kejriwal gives us the NOW and updated version of it in her impeccably tailored dungarees in black taking the attitude from the casual to an almost formal perception, and that we love!

Mansi Kejriwal

Mansi pairs up her pair of tailored dungarees cut above the ankles to a 7/8th length with a beaded knit crop top in grey. We love the silhouette she creates and the fact that her choice of accessories to go along bring out the sharp sophistication so well.
Mansi Kejriwal

Mansi wears her hair tied up, well outlined eyes and a lip color that complements her quirky metal and acrylic cut-out danglers.
Mansi Kejriwal

Keeping with the cut-out theme we also love her choice of footwear that is a pair of pointed toe ballet shoes with sides cut out, in black patent leather. It enhances her look of sharp sophistication....don't you think?

The MOD

How many men have you seen who can wear the wavy cascading Quiff the way Daniel can? When I spotted Daniel this time, he transported me to the Elvis era, mostly by his hair but also his whole styled look had a rockabilly chic vibe to it that we can spot on the streets of London more easily than Mumbai!
Daniel Franklin 
Daniel wears this horizontal striped blue+black shirt with short sleeves and a grand-dad collar, very MOD, as are his black leather brogue tassel loafers, with a pair of his favorite blue skinny jeans with hems rolled up-to the ankles. The X-factor is brought in by the asymmetric cut oversize knit shirt that he layers on!
Daniel Franklin

The quiff was of course almost patented by Elvis, but NOW we are seeing more modern versions of it much like Daniel's with shaved sides and long rolled cascade front. Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Zac Effron have all been seen in versions of the Quiff and are quite popular hairstyle-of-the-moment!
Daniel Franklin

Of course Daniel was at work...as a Fashion Stylist with The Juice Magazine by Jabong.com His Tan leather satchel holds everything that he might need including a strong-hold spray for the cascade,we're guessing!

Effortless Chic

Whats effortless style? When someone asked me that I said its the way you choose your clothes and accessories, put them together in a way that seems perfect together.....not more and not less. Nothing that you wear seems imposed or uncomfortable....and yet you feel great! that is effortless.
Simran Sethi

This effortless cool is what we spotted on Simran Sethi, this top and short skirt/ shorts combo is sort of the new rule of dressing for the young and the restless brigade. A very teen getting well into young fashion look has been gaining massive popularity among the girlies.
Simran Sethi
http://aquaintperspective.blogspot.in/, Simran Sethi

Simran wears the most popular Spring Summer item, the skater skirt in a beautiful geo-floral print that almost looks like an embellished and  textured surface and pairs it up with a very interesting knotted top. The top is in the more dressier (compared to a knit t-shirt) woven pinstripes in soft blue and white with the excess ending in a knot at center waist....we love!
Simran Sethi

A striped clutch, a studded off-white bracelet, encrusted ballet shoes in nude are her accessories of choice. Simran finishes off with her gorgeous locks worn open and just a hint of eye definition and lip color. Effortless....oh yes!

The Old World Charm

The Double breasted suit has been wowing the coming-off age men recently.  Dressier than the single breasted and much popular counterpart, the DB suit is more elegant and more symbolic of power. This has been reinforced by the power dressers like Brad Pitt, David Beckham and shown on the ramps to much applaud by the style Guru Tom Ford.

Anuj Bhutani shows her his interpretation of the DB suit that is unique and modern albeit with an air of that old world charm and magnanimity.

Anuj Bhutani

Anuj's DB jacket in slate grey is cut with a broader shoulder, and a complementing lapel to an oversize length just a little above the mid thigh. He has done away from the conventional 6X2 and 4X2 button layout to stick to 2x2 layout at the waist. A black shirt worn un-tucked and the roomy-tapering-towards-the-bottom pants cut well above the ankles brings out his unique silhouette. A pair of dark tan vintage leather oxford shoes finish off his look.

 Anuj Bhutani

The random geometric pattern on his suit add another dimension to his interpretation. Re-visiting the classics to interpret the new modern. Anuj Bhutani is a designer and showed at the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week 14 in Mumbai.

The Minimalist

We at A Quaint Perspective ensure that we keep bringing to you the numerous forms of self-expression through the wearer's clothes, style and personality. It could be a maximalist's indulgences or a minimalist's editing of the pieces one put on together, both equally capable of making heads turn as you pass by.

Sita Wadhwani shows us her cool minimalistic style in predominantly black but look out for the quirky choices that say there's much more to this girl than meets the eye.

Sita wears this quilted black sleeveless wrap jacket, held at the waist with a black leather belt. The jacket sits comfortably between being very Indian at the same time very Japanese.  The paperbag purse in black and cream leather, the bandeaux top in rust, her spectacles and her sans jewelry and make-up look complement her minimalistic choices.

However her choice of a very quirky indeed and one-of-a-kind vertebrae print leggings and her motorcycle martin boots in black leather tell us about a girl unafraid to venture into the unknown and curious to discover on her journeys.

The Underground Movement is here

How refreshing is it to see guys having fun with proportions! I mean we see girls doing it all the time with various silhouettes, but boys seem to be stuck in the top+bottom proportions with a few variants in the fits going from loose to skinny and back.
