Attention! Fashion – NANDINI, Chennai
Military-inspired fashion – the newest trend to hit the South – is reporting for duty! But that doesn’t mean you have to dress in head-to-toe camo. No, this time around fashionistas are taking a minimalistic approach to military. Meaning, your uniform should be the same army green and neutral colour palette, just minus all the patterns. As for accessories? Get ready to strap on some serious studded hardware.
NANDINI, Entrepreneur and owner The Armoire
She holds a post graduate degree in entrepreneurship from the prestigious University College London, and is a former banking professional with The Royal Bank of Scotland. A self proclaimed fashionista and shopaholic, The Armoire is her debut entrepreneurial venture, post training with her other family owned retail businesses – Saumya (KNK Road, Chennai) and Global Desi by Anita Dongre (Express Avenue, Chennai). When she isn’t busy scouring the latest trends online, she also enjoys travelling, networking and the arts.The Armoire is a carefully curated luxe pop up that launches in Chennai this October, at the onset of the festive season. The brand philosophy is modern silhouettes meeting feminine chic in a palette that’s truly en vogue. And so, for its premiere collection, the store will feature avantgarde Indian and Indo-Western prêt, jewellery and other accessories from a chosen lot of designers from across India.
“My personal style can be best described as feminine chic. So when I was asked to style a military inspired look, I decided to pair neutral tones rather than opt for typical camouflage prints,” she explains, talking about the look she’s put together for the photo shoot.
