Surbhi Pansari’s subtle experiments for HIM

Surbhi Pansari’s subtle experiments for HIM

Surbhi Pansari has what you might call an anthropological perspective on fashion, seeing it as something that defines regional and national identities and is indicative of social change. She eventually excelled in on the tailoring as the hook for her expertise. Right before the festivities begin we decode ways how to subtly change your regular style.

BlabberCat hung out with the leading lady in the mens wear world and asked her to show us the subtle experiment tips, as well as how best to style it.

Colour me rad

While beige and cream silk kurtas will always be popular, break the festive myth of dress code and opt for the latest fashion palate colours. No, not fuchsia. Think aqua blue, bottle green, sapphire blue, wine or pistachio – they’re festive and complement most Indian skin tones. However, remember: if you choose a brightly-coloured jowahar jacket, anchor it down with a neutral shade churidar or pants.

Rise and Shine

Don’t shy away from yellow as its making a big comeback. If done subtly, yellow is always a good call during Diwali, Puja or a Sangeet function. If movie star glam is what your personality screams, Jodhpuri Coats will do the trick. Wear it with jeans and a T-shirt, or throw a shawl over your sherwani it for cooler evenings. Whatever you do, don’t wear head-to-toe same shade of blue.

Vested Interest

A bandhi is a must have and it comes in all shapes, sizes and variations; it’s a great way to upgrade the churidar-kurta. Remember: If the kurta has a busy pattern, opt for a bandhi that’s either solid or has tone-on-tone embroidery. Or, keep the kurta plain, and take it to the next level with a vest in a riot of colour.

Macho Mono

Monotones don’t have to be monotonous. Play with layers to visually break things up. Embroidery and sequins work also; add an extra dimension to an all-beige ensemble.

Dark and twisted

Deep jewel tones like rusted shades of nature, smoky grey, brick red, metallic bronzes with a lot of vintage architechtural prints dominated the collection who embraces modern and minimalist glamour with a classic twist

Beauty and the Bold

The bold doesn’t have to be colourful stripes and checks. It can be bold textures and same colour embroidery that remind you of the rich visual intensity of Asian textile tradition even as the studio incorporates a gamut of textiles – woven, printed and bold lines to reflect Surbhi’s characteristic work in a textured and layered look imbibing her design philosophy to create a collection closely connected to its roots but with a global appeal that lends itself to kurtas, kaftans, sherwanis and bandhis.
