Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India March 2018, issue:
Our 9th Anniversary Issue features our first-ever annual list: The Creatives. 101 men and women across art, design, literature, film, and music who have inspired us, shaped the way we think. In addition, the issue looks at the international women's movement, and the way we see it in India. In a special collaboration with photographer Sujatro Ghosh, we photographed seven women in the streets of Delhi wearing a cow mask, as they stake their claim on public space. Another collaboration with artist Shakuntala Kulkarni, who creates body armour out of cane, also addresses the issue of women and public space. In fashion, our cover star Padma Lakshmi opens up about how India has always inspired her professional pursuits, including her latest foray into cosmetics. We also have an exclusive shoot at the Sculpture Park in Nahargarh Fort. And we look at travel through the eyes of the pioneers behind the country's most creative museums.
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.
