Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India October 2016, issue: For the first time in its seven-year history, Harper’s Bazaar India is a men’s-only edition, featuring Akshay Kumar on the cover. We look at what it takes to be a man today, with essays and ideas and thoughts from authors, artists, actors, photographers. We scour men’s runway fashion to present the trends, products, and brands they need to know about. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput opens up about his personal style, and designer Ashish Soni shares his moodboard. In fashion, we focus on 90s fashion, with outerwear and athleisure, in a shoot featuring young Indian designers and models. Then, we show our readers how and where they can get the look. We also have features on Diesel Black Gold, and the H&M and Kenzo collaboration. Our beauty section for this issue was rebranded as Grooming: The highlights include a photo shoot on yoga with model and yogi Arya Bhatt, a shoot on grooming essentials, and the ultimate skin and haircare tool box. In features, we have Timothy Oulton’s new store, author Karan Mahajan’s reading list, NH7 Weekender’s art project, and the exclusive whiskeys to drink. Apart from the cover story, back of book features a shoot with Abhay Deol in Paris, and an interview with Suneet Varma. Travel takes us to the top wildlife resorts in India as safari season opens this month.
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.
