Desihighstyle X Headtilt: Featuring DLF Emporio - Part 2

As I talked about in a previous post, Surbhi (from Headtilt) and I recently collaborated on a fun shoot featuring DLF Emporio. The mall has an eclectic mix of both Indian and international labels so one doesn't need to go running around like a headless chicken all over the city when they're in the mood to indulge in luxury fashion. This worked perfectly for us, as we were able to find everything from the SS17 collections to come up with looks that were not only stylish but also reflection of our individual personalities under one roof.

For our second look, we went absolutely crazy at the Rajesh Pratap Singh boutique. I still remember how mesmerised we were when we saw the collection on the runway at fashion week. So when we started browsing, we tried on almost every outfit at his store! The blazer obsessed person that I am, when Surbhi picked out a black wrap around jacket, with shiny lapels for me to try, I was sold. I loved its fit and that it wasn't restricting my movement. And the wrap around added a playful touch. Paired over a pair of high waisted Versace jeans, my outfit was sorted. Meanwhile, Surbhi looked absolutely ravishing in a deconstructed gold shirt which she styled in a way that revealed her shoulders and a grey skirt from the designer. Someone even stopped her in the middle of the shoot to ask where her outfit was from. Yes. She looked that good.

As a bag snob, I had been eyeing the Versace Palazzo Empire bags since they were launched, so it was a no brainer that both of us were going to end up with one of those for our looks. I chose a a mini, colour blocked version of the purse. The colours were really striking so they added a bit of a contrast to against the black jacket. In addition, since the bag comes with two optional shoulder straps,  I chose the more sporty, striped wide strap. Surbhi on the other hand selected a more classic variation of the bag in black and a larger size. As for jewellery, Roberto Cavalli without a doubt has one of the finest collections of costume jewellery. You can see for yourself from our shoots!
