For blending minimalism with her signature rocker chic style

Music producer, Actor; Mumbai

Style inspiration
Instagram handles like ratandboa, off____white, and 70sdaily.

Online hang-out

Labels you blindly trust
Three by Pallavi Dhyani, Payal Khandwala, Tribe, Off-White, Vetements and Yohji Yamamoto.

Will never be seen without
A relaxed vibe. That’s what makes the difference…more than what you’re wearing.

Will never be seen wearing
Bermudas. The worst thing I can think of!

Trends that shape your style
Minimalism is inspiring. I love rock ’n’ roll grunge and it’s fun dressing to get a balance of both.

Menswear you love to flaunt

A style tip you learnt from your mom
Be a ’70s babe.

On a dream date you would wear
Lightweight hiking sneakers, a ganji, a rainproof jacket, with my Cat backpack.

Day make-up versus night
I keep it all pretty simple so there isn’t much difference — winged eyeliner and bright lips. Maybe I’d add some shine for the night.

Most stylish woman
Reshma Bombaywala is my personal favourite.

Most stylish musician of 2016
I like how FKA Twigs dresses. It’s sexy and badass.

The definition of ‘a perfect fit’
Not too tight, not too loose. Just right!

Style a sari
By keeping it simple and earthy. Maybe I’d wear a full-sleeved blouse or a Raw Mango jacket over it.

Next, Masaba Gupta.
