Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India December 2016, issue: The December issue celebrates the people of India, across various genres and fields. Our cover star Bhumika Arora best exemplifies this—the small-town girl who’s stormed international runways and made NYC her home. Throughout the issue, we look at some of the best representatives of India’s diverse talent pool. We have indie music sensation Parekh & Singh; Twinkle Khanna, who’s earned her spot on bestselling lists for her books; jewellery designer Suhani Pittie, who completes 10 years in the business and for this issue writes about the pieces that have shaped her work. We also have a piece on Rohit Bal, who completes 25 years in fashion. Our shoots, too, celebrate the spirit of modern India. We look at Indian Androgyny through a shoot in the streets of Kolkata, featuring models wearing salwar kameez with belts and jackets.
Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India April 2016, issue: The April issue of Harper's Bazaar India is dedicated this issue to journeys of all kinds. Take our cover stars, for instance. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor have both traversed afar in their careers, and in Ki & Ka, explore unconventional roles: She’s a career woman and he’s a house husband. Then there’s Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto, who has become an icon of punk style. She has designed a fashion line for big girls that’s already making waves. You’ll also meet author Polly Vernon, whose new book, Hot Feminist, is being talked about everywhere, and should be on your holiday reading list. In beauty, there are expert tips on how to look glowing and fresh straight off a plane, and the best makeup crayons you need to pack. In features, there are the books that have made the journey from being social media successes to legit literature. Then there is the next big food revolution that’s taking over the culinary world: Cooking with trash. We’ve also got the definitive guide to the world’s best hotels, and some of the most mouth-watering food trails you could follow (thank us later). In fashion, we celebrate the power of film with Cinema Cinema, a photo feature dedicated to iconic movies set in destinations like Venice and Egypt. Chanel’s pre-Fall 2016 show that took place at Rome’s iconic Cinecittà (founded in ‘37 by Mussolini, no less) in December last year showed us how inspirational a culture can be. We also travel to Thailand where summer’s hottest hue, orange, blends in beautifully with the country’s russet-robed monks and crumbling brick temples. In the end, a journey is more in the mind than on the road, and we invite you to take this one with us, page by page.
