Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar India January-February 2021, issue:
The latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar celebrates A New Dawn in our lives, through personal essays on fresh beginnings, embracing a more conscious approach to fashion, and more. Covergirl Aditi Rao Hydari has a very special and intimate conversation with bazaar about her life and why she is committed to being kind and discovering happiness. In fashion, we explore the evolution of fashion weeks in India, since its inception decades ago to the new, digital format. Meanwhile, designer Rajesh Pratap Singh pens a tribute to the late designer, Satya Paul, whose brand he is now helming as its Creative Director. Actor Shilpa Shetty opens up about her life, latest fashion venture, and more, while Kajol shares the details of her digital debut, strong female role models in her family, and views on feminism.
We also present the latest trends in bags, shoes, and accessories. Couturier Rahul Mishra lets in on the inspiration behind his new jewellery range, while a special fashion shoot spotlights the homegrown brands that are recycling, upcycling, and leaving behind a lesser carbon footprint through their processes. We also celebrate female bosses and entrepreneurs, as they each share with us their mantra on how to stay motivated. In travel, internationally-renowned designer Prabal Gurung takes us to his motherland, Nepal, a country that provides him with the ultimate solace, while five Bazaar contributors—Payal Khandwala, Simran Lal, Pooja Dhingra, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghai, and Sahar Mansoor—share the pivotal moments of their lives that changed their course for the better. In art and culture, there are exclusive conversations with the maestros Jogen Chowdhury, Deepa Mehta, and Baroness Kishwar Desai.
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.
