Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India May 2016, issue: The May issue of Harper’s Bazaar India welcomes summer with a beautiful swimwear cover featuring supermodel Ketholeno Kense. Brands like Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna, Shivan Narresh, and Amit Aggarwal made special order swimsuits for Bazaar as well. The trends that we feature this month—whites, sheers, Carine Roitfeld’s shades of beauty—celebrate the season to stunning effect. This month, we also launch the Bazaar Inspires series of creative conversations around fashion—for the first one, Suket Dhir and Rahul Mishra come together to explain why Indian is not just ethnic. The issue is fun and playful, best demonstrated through stories like artist Cindy Sherman’s satirical collection of selfies. In arts and culture, the Indian filmmaker making it big abroad, a roundup of summer’s best international exhibitions, and a story on why the new style of clubbing is sober. Our travel section takes readers to the best Caribbean beach vacations.
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.
