You think wearing hearts is risque , On men?

Well, its all about how you style it and how you want to carry it off .

You can either take a sartorial path , just like i did , by taking the look a notch up , or you  can play safe , by wearing the shirt with a black denim , and black t shirt, keeping it understated !

MONSIEUR

vikram

We got The dapper and Multi Talented , Vikram Hazarika Sharma , The man  who is Happy Wearing Multiple Hats , From Being  A Stylist (Elle and Femina ),  a Writer( femina and homegrown )  and  being a Brand Consultant for Mutliple brands like Mr. Fox , Ashish N Soni   ,  and  Never Ever fails to cut a perfect Picture and bring his Gentleman Side , to come on board with us for a feature on Ubermensch lab  .

 

We got candid and Personal  With him , at his Dwarka Residence , where he Invited us .

Vikram , Stays in his mother’s House , with his pets . The house Speaks about  Art and Class , from every Corner , with paintings from  his sister  .  Every piece that is picked and put in his room , talks about his love for Fashion , quirk and elegance  .

 

Q1: How come you got into this field?? You always wanted to be this??

Growing up, I’d always been interested in art & culture, a passion encouraged by my mother, who used to take us for countless art & museum exhibits, plays and other culturally relavant events. The interest in visual arts gradually morphed into an interest in fashion, which led me to enroll in design school, where I learnt the ins & outs of fashion design. It was during a summer course in fashion communication at Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan that I decided I wanted to pursue a career in fashion journalism, as a result of which I set up an online magazine on alternative fashion a few short months after graduating, which was soon followed by a stint at Femina. Along the way I’ve been involved in various aspects of the industry, which has enabled me to comfortably juggle a multitude of roles within the fashion realm.

 

Q2: I see you are an animal lover..?

Yes, I definitely am. I would have to attribute my fondness for animals to my sister Huma, who after rehabilitating & adopting two stray dogs last year, opened me up to the unbridled love that animals can bestow upon a person. We have two pet dogs, Mercedez & Hoop, who are pretty much a part of the family!

 

Q3: So Vikram what do you think you are better a writer or stylist?

It’s a little difficult to answer this question objectively, but having had more experience with styling shoots, I feel more competent as a stylist, but writing is something I really enjoy, a medium which gives you a deeper insight into the inner workings of a creative entity or individual.

 

Q4: A designer item you own, you cherish ? and what would you like to own once in your lifetime?

Ironically, I’m not big on designer labels, although I do appreciate the tremendous amount of effort designers put into telling a story through clothing each season. A lot of hard work goes into creating a brand and sustaining it’s popularity through time in an environment where there is growing competition and most ingenious ideas have already been tapped into. However I do cherish a few pieces I’ve accumulated in my wardrobe with time, such as my leather bomber jacket, a double breasted woolen overcoat & my wide array of black t-shirts, a colour that I pretty much live in!

vikram 2

Q5: Whats your style statement ? How would you dress up for a casual outing in Delhi winters?

My personal style has definitely evolved with time. I prefer wearing basic silhouettes in neutral tones. On a normal winter day in Delhi, you’d catch me in an overcoat, black slim fit trousers and a grey muffler.

 

Q6: What do you think about present scenario on Men fashion in India?

I think the men’s fashion scene in India has come a long way. Right from designers, bloggers, magazines to stylists, models & celebrities, the interest in menswear in India has really picked up. People have started taking a greater interest in men’s fashion, a trend that could be potentially used to eradicate gender insensitivity.

 

Q7: What do you think would be the future? do we have the potential to go International?

I think in many ways, we already have, with the likes of Waris Ahluwalia & Singh Street Style having garnered attention overseas. But yes, it would be interesting to see an Indian brand or Individual influencing global trends in menswear on a larger scale.

 

vik23

Q8: What are you presently reading??

I usually find solace in the thought provoking writing of writers such as Jack Kerouac, Charles Bukowski and Murakami…but I’m currently reading a book that’s fairly out of my comfort zone, The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a scientifically inclined book on the theory of Improbability.

 

Q9: Our readers would want to know …One style tip you would give to every            men?

One style tip I’d give to every man would probably be to be open to newer ways of dressing, not to let cultural or social archetypes restrict you from dressing the way you want.

 

Q10: It’s the cheesy one…Current relationship status?

Haha I usually don’t like delving into personal matters…but yes, I’m currently dating someone!

Every Heart has a Deep Dark Secret .

Mine , Holds a secret , about my special Love for Black and white .


 

 

On a winter Morning ,i ditched my colours ( with an apologetic heart ) , and slipped on A Black and white cardigan , and Checkered pants , styled with A Manchester United Official bag , and Reebok classics , and made my way to the ongoing Street art festival , started by Delhi Street artists , In  yet to be disclosed spaces and Locations  in New Delhi.

Black and white , forms an intergral part of this story .

Individually these Colours , stands for completely opposite connotations and indentities , but when put together , they become ultra supreme .  The play of Stripes against the checks , comes out in sharp contrast , and lifts up the look completely .

The Yellow Fellow

On a bright sunny winter morning , We lab keepers , decided to take a plunge and pump up an Indian kurta !

Grabbing out Americanoes , we rushed into the car and started swinging on the streets of Delhi .

 

6:45

We land up ourselves on a rahgiri day , at cannaught place  ( Read : The heart Of New Delhi ) , and found this perfect spot to shoot !

Wrapping up myself in a printed floral fabric ( worn as an over sized scarf here ) , with a sea blue kurta , denims and Reebok Classics , with  finishing touches of Green Patka ( Read :- Turban ) , and reflective glasses ( I use them quite often , because i love them a lot ) .

Putting this look together , for a cozy winter morning was quite fun .

 

We took this look , to a whole next level , by adding an Occur Studded  bag   , and a Neoprene  overcoat, which is my current favorite !

2

The grafitti , at the back , served as a best friend to pump up the look and gave a brilliant location !

We styled this Desi kurta , giving it a modern and Not so contemporary Look , supported with Right accessories.

We would love to see , how you would style up your kurta ?


Till then , Slay in style !

WINTER HUES

WINTER HUES

My work takes me everywhere and to everyone. I don’t try to match situations and places to my attire. I try to match it with my mood and attitude towards my work. So I was in Chandni chowk where most of the opposite sex would be told to cover up because of certain sense of safety and anthrophobia. But I’m a free soul not changed to society’s idea of good or bad. I could stand out by being freaky and adorning haute couture but I decide to keep it Human and yet be superior among mortal.

It’s early morning  at the busiest part of the capital, work starts before most men have seen the first light , and my Movember trend is still on ! My beard and me , both have become dark and dense , with november and shall continue to stand tall ! I would pick up the brown leather jacket over basic check shirt to conceive my madness (golden pointy badges) and yet keep it stylish and neat.Going through tiny lanes I meet different people who don’t turn in shock but in appreciation of what they could have done because… “my touch is lot too much”

It could have been easy for me to pay someone and get my work done, But I believe people’s admiration and faith comes when everything you make have your touch.So I go to different markets meet different people of all statuses ranging from Filthy rich to downtrodden poor exchanging, haggling and bargaining. It’s a bustling market full of buyers and sellers, and early morning my Blue Knit joggers are just the thing I need to keep me comfortable and yet active avoiding jerks and pushovers.Its early November mist has started to rise and as you know “Winter is coming” so I need another layer under my Blue Bolero jacket which is just breaking the monotony and not rubbing it on people’s face, and this Grey knit Pullover does right justice to me keeping me warm, classy . Lets face it I am a no non-sense person Early in the morning.

Don’t you love the fog or wait…ermm.. Smogg yeah. Perfect brilliant white background and natural light, eery coolness to the environment .I wish it could be the same 24 x 7. I decide to take…. a Jog in the fog for my blog (damn Iam good).. till the time few of my lazy merchants get up. Frankly speaking Neon was my first love, it’s a born winner , best believe it. It takes real guts and madness to carry it off. BH adds or (I love to call it) sprinkled some neon on this grey knit jacket making it visible yet subtle. You don’t want to be part of the herd wearing same old jersey training jacket or one of those ugly thermocots or worst have a football team logo in front (which you have no clue about, FYI: Beckham no more plays in MAN U)

 

We all have same 24 hours, same seasons, same places, same resources if not better to become a better person, But rising above all requires no money, no contacts, only sheer dedication and creativity. You know you are doing great when people regardless of stature and class love you equally, wish for you, help you because at some point of time you have also done the same to them,

If that’s not Being Yourself ,  I don’t know what is.

WIND OF WINTER -THREESOME

IMG_9256

Hello Guys !!!

Welcome back and Im having a Threesome !

Ha ha ha , Not literally .

I have A very Cool Brand , Threesome , on board This time , which  is about three design philosophies getting comprised into one. Started by 3 friends who have been together in college – sharing an interest in fashion and style, the three designers behind the label subscribe to different design ideas and working styles; but share a similar vision and understanding.

 

 

So we got Ankit , One of the pillars , From threesome ,  to Shoot with Us , and we styled him In threesome menswear , in a  threesome Awesome Way .

2

A textured Coat , with leather detailings ,  A rust T shirt , and Chinos, added with a printed Scarf . Thats how  we defined Ankit’s look .

 

1

 

On being asked , Why Threesome ?

The key inspiration to start the label was to work together and experience the eccentricity and vibrance of the design world and indulge to give back and add what they have to offer.

To explore the endless possibilities of design and together achieve an amalgamation of three different styles coming together to form one unique thing – this is the main essence of Threesome.

 

4

Apart From being a Womenswear label , Threesome also indulge in  Menswear and how !

Styled Ankit , for his second look , with a tribal printed shirt and leather patch pocket . Paying main emphasis about  the detailings At the collar and The placket , the shirt is a complete winner .

6

The high point in their career , apart from just working together , was showcasing in Lakme Gen Next . GenNext was  a turning point in the careers of these three – an opportunity, a break that the three of them are so grateful to Lakme for .

 

 

We whole heartidly wish , Team THREESOME , a very very bright future .

Wish to shop Threesome ? Visit them here :-
