The beauty about taking pictures of strangers in the streets, is that it gives you the opportunity to travel without actually taking a plane! Like when I met Antara Motiwala… The beautiful fashion editor of GQ India, also known for her natural elegance and poise.
I remember being on my bike in between shows, during the last Milan men fashion week, when I spotted her across the street in Via Montenapoleone. Disregarding the traffic, I cycled into her direction and asked if I could take her picture. She kindly accepted, after which we talked a little about her and she told me that her stunning and original outfit was from a young talented Indian designer called Nishka Lulla. As you know, I am really into traditional/ethnic clothing so I was really happy to discover a new brand which I would have probably never heard off otherwise. A few days later, I went onto Nishka’s website and fell in love with most of the pieces from her collection, especially the blue version of what Antara is wearing and this white dress.
Back to Antara, I love the simplicity of her outfit, its colorful and playful prints but more than anything its cropped top! I would probably have to do a few abs before I could rock it like she does, but it is a sacrifice I am definitely willing to make ;-)
She completed her look with a classic Alexander McQueen bag. And as for the sandals… If only I remembered where she got them, it would have probably save me a lot of time last month while on the hunt for the perfect summer flats! Did I mentioned that Antara was absolutely adorable and very kind? You can discover more about her in this interesting interview.
