Rewind to Classics – The ‘new’ Vintage

‘Time’ as a term can never be a stand alone expression. It has to have a tense associated with it. Those were the times, in today’s time, in times to come. It is also quite intriguing how when the same used in Hindi/ Urdu, stands untouched – ‘guzra hua waqt’ , ‘ane wala waqt’. Also, reminisces me of the saying that, no matter how expensive the watch, the time is going to remain the same. Yes, it’s true. But the moment you see/ touch a very old watch you feel rewinded for the moment. That is sheer quality of a vintage/ classic piece owing to the time it belongs to and a sentimental value attached to it.

Vintage means something of old times, something you ‘preserve’ because you find it valuable and you retain it in the best possible way. Belonging to the rich heritage of monuments, culture, demographics etc etc our country has immense vintage. No wonder how much our nation is criticized for numerous reasons we never stop pulling people from across the globe. It somehow is a wondrous feature of our motherland that a small shift in place takes you to an entirely different language, food, way of dressing and yes one thing remains constant, the hospitality.

Vintage fashion is one which keeps coming in waves – The Anarkalis from Mughal-e-azam, the over-sized glasses from Hare Rama Hare Krishna,  the Banarasi silk seems so absorbed in today’s fashion; so much to the extent that you never thought you are revisiting.

Vogue Radar: 

This outfit is that vintage for me. This attire (sari) basically belongs to grandmother. This was bought in 1970’s from Nepal. Mum was a bit heavy hearted to part with it,  but the enlightenment that it is going to get a new life, saved it. She got the skirt and dupatta made out of it. Have been searching for a right top to it, finally the search ended in my own wardrobe (a very old kurta). Why a kurta and not a short top? Because the grace which is exuded by this was matchless for me. The combination of green and yellow has been doing rounds since ages and is going to stay. The work you see on borders is unique owing to the time it belongs to. A silver clutch was added to blend in and accentuate the overall look. I am an ardent fan of traditional attires, for me covering is the new sexy (too much left to guess then :p)

Wanted to hit the nail – old world charm. Right from accessories to hairdo. Yes, I specifically need/like to mention about the hairdo, that’s  my favorite part of the entire look. It is a roll bun which finds its place essentially in old Hollywood classics. It takes the whole look to another level altogether. This was a very light airbrush makeup, done with all Mac products.

This was a look I created for my piece of heart (yeah it sounds cliched), my childhood friend’s engagement. Isn’t she looking gorgeous and so does her outfit? 🙂

Dress: Kakul’s Mum

Makeup and hair Artist : Sweetheart Aunt

Jewellery : Mehra Store (Khan market)

#VRadvice: When you think of going to splurge on a traditional outfit always dig in through your mother’s closet, you are sure to find a “preserved piece” screaming to be embraced. Does it ring a bell?? Yes, a small step towards your own creation.

There you are not just wearing a piece of clothing, but carrying an entire era one which unfolds into a story kept discreetly by mothballs…
