Monday Muse: Eleonora Carisi, Blogger for

Eleonora Carisi is one of my favourite bloggers with a distinct style.Blogging since 2009 on, the blog covers all aspects of lifestyle ranging from fashion to beauty.

Owner of a concept store “You Shop” in Turin, Italy, Eleonora stocks and supports emerging and upcoming designers, and is also the blogger for, and a regular shutterbug trigger at fashion weeks.

Not afraid of colour pairing, lines are simple and long, maxis are combined with oversize knits and bold accessories!

You can recognise her in the crowd with her gorgeous beauty spot and dark hair thrown up on one side(To die for)!

Dinky Talks: Shivan & Narresh at Lakme Fashion Week

Swimwear in India is synonymous with this eponymous label Shivan & Narresh.

The duo behind the luxury swimwear brand, has brought not only what was considered a taboo in India, but also changed the mindset of most Indians towards the 2 piece swimwear.

Rumor has it that they have Lady Luck and Mr.Destiny on their speed dial, of course Talent and Modern Aesthetics are their bum chums, together this little jing-bang have created an uproar in the Fashion Industry in India.

They have spearheaded with what they thought India was ready for(much against what most people thought was impossible), and launched their luxury Swimwear brand  in 2010, initially in Italy (where they ‘mastered’ their talent), followed by their studio and store in Delhi,India, and finally celebrating their store launch in Tinsel Town, Mumbai, this year.

What I found fascinating were the copyrights for the Bikini Sari© and Kaftan Sari©, I just wonder why no one thought of it before!

The official swimwear partners for Pantaloons Femina Miss India, and being stocked across TAJ and LEELA Kempinski resorts, these guys have pretty much embedded their stars on the Fashion Walk of Fame in India,and caused quite a stir internationally too.

I have had the pleasure of knowing the boys since my school days in NIFT, and saying that we go a long way back is an understatement, however they launched the label when I was living overseas, so you could just imagine my excitement (and pride)sitting in the front row of my friends turned-designer sensation.

The latest Resort ’12/13 EQUUS collection’s show was a what I would call an initiator of a Twitter Trend Topic, and so it was,starting with the Green laser beaming across the audience and the models.The collection inspired by folk equestrian tales, represented by mixing fabrics of various sheen and opulence, and braiding and tassels of the royal horse’s decoration, the collection oozed seductive glory. Hand louvered jersey gave away the duo’s attention to detail and perfection.

You can get in touch with Shivan & Narresh on their website and their facebook page here.

Monday Muse: Elena Perminova




I have already covered one of the ladies from the ever popular “The Russian Fashion Pack”,Mira Duma a few weeks ago, and it is time for me to explore more!

 Elena Perminova is the stylist- model- girlfriend of former KGB spy-turned-banking tycoon Alexander Lebedev, owner of The Independent newspaper.
A very regular first row seater, Elena has a distinct style of combining high street pieces with designer labels. An uncanny eye of retro prints, this leggy model believes in being comfortably chic, with flat ballet pumps as a staple! Accessories are a must, with Elena, with a special attention to Headbands and hats!
Have a look at more of her looks on my pinterest board.
Which one is your favourite look of Elena?
Love,Di xx

Dinky Talks: Surendri by Yogesh Chaudhary: Miss Pac-in District

This is my first post from Mumbai, the city of Dreams in India. I am here to attend Lakme Fashion Week, and talk to more people about

However on the 2nd days of Lakme Fashion Week, the only thing people were talking about was the ever so popular 80’s Retro Graphic arcade game PAC MAN.

Yogesh Chaudhary’s latest collection is all about Miss Pac, with its pac-isized flowers, 2 tone graphical printed sari(The Indian Drape which Women around the world crave), the knit crop tops, worn in some looks as the blouse under the Sari, the Palazzo Pants, the front slit -HOTTT dress, and the amazing monochrome workwear inspired jumpsuit.

This NIFT and NID designer, walks the fine line of contemporary and ethnic when it comes to his ready to wear collection.

His finishes and fits are clean, lines simple, and colours vibrant and playful.

A promising emerging designer and I can’t wait to see his collection being picked up by international stores and boutiques,so that we all can have a piece of the his line.

Till then,you can always contact him directly,in case you can’t wait:)

p.s: keep an eye for his jewellery, I am a proud receiver of the PAC man brooch, which was on everyone’s lust list! haha

You can follow him on his Facebook page here
