The country is going gaga over Piku and Shoojit Sircar has proved that he knows how to hit the right chord with the audience by bringing out fresh concepts to watch. Having an exceptional star cast has also worked for this movie as Amitabh Bacchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan would be any director's Dream Team for a movie like Piku. While I can go on raving about the movie, I am going to touch on my next favourite part of the movie which should be an obvious - Deepika's look!
I was recently invited to the unveiling of the 'Piku Inspired Collection by Melange by Lifestyle' by Deepika and Irrfan and I really liked the look created for her character. Deepika's look in the movie is stylish, functional and comfortable and is a perfect marriage of modern meets ethnic. I loved her easy breezy style with kurtis, palazzos, jeans, jackets and scarves seamlessly paired together for a very realistic approach to her character. Here's what Deepika had to say about her look!
There was a fashion show to take us through the entire Piku collection which was heavily dominated by black, white and red and there were quite a few pieces that caught my eye. Deepika also crowned the winner of the Piku Melange contest held by Lifestyle.
Lifestyle also let me choose from the Piku Collection by Melange and here is what I put together inspired by Deepika's look in the movie :) I went with the quintessential combination of black and white by combining a classic Chikan kurta with black linen pants and a black bandi(jacket) with tassles and white block print on it.
In case one wants, one can also add a black dupatta to it to give it a more ethnic touch.
I've put together a casual Indian look for the first time on my blog and it's been quite good fun. As always Melange by Lifestyle gave me a fantastic collection to choose from and I am looking forward to adding some more pieces to my wardrobe. The black linen pants are so comfortable that I am practically living in them now and it can be paired with a T-shirt or a short kurti too. While I go and pick up some more pieces for myself, this is a collection that I would surely recommend for you girls to go check out too!
