Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India September 2016, issue: The issue features Priyanka Chopra on the cover. There’s also a second cover with Kim Kardashion and Kanye West. Since this is the September issue, it’s all about fashion. But this time round, we’ve moved away from trend reports, and the It piece to own. Instead, we take a deeper look into fashion. We look at one of the country’s oldest fashion stores, Ensemble, as it relaunches in a newer, bugger way; we create a conversation between designers Abraham & Thakore and architect Ambrish Arora; and celebrate 25 years of Carma. Our fashion shoots include sportswear-inspired looks, the best of new season collections by luxury brands, and metallics. In beauty, we have new perfumes by LV and Chanel, and a hair special—what to eat, the products to buy, and how to love your curls. We also continue the lea-up to the Best of Beauty Awards with a story by designer Masaba Gupta. In features, our special story this month is on homegrown chocolates. And the travel section is a New York special.
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.
