Summers have always been synonymous with a vacation, for us! Now most of those who know us also know about our love for travelling, especially to different parts of India. At the onset of this summer, we made a trip to the iconic The Leela Palace, Udaipur for a short sojourn with our cover star—and the experience included all that falls in the definition of ‘luxury’.

Our cover star for the issue, Manushi Chhillar—is a name who brought immense pride to every Indian when she won the Miss India and the Miss World title. The beauty title holder also made her way into the film industry with the sheer grit of becoming the best actor and all we can say is: she’s unstoppable! Chhillar sits down with us for a chat about her journey from starting her career as a beauty pageant contestant to winning two coveted beauty titles. The star, who has some big film projects lined up, also talks about how she’s on a learning curve of her own, ready to absorb every lesson along the way.

Following close, we have feature stories on eminent personalities from around the world and India who have made a mark in their respective fields of work. From Ben Gorham—the founder of Byredo to Tejal Patni—a prominent photographer whose work is more than what meets the eye, and Hiromi Ueda—global make-up artist for Armani Beauty to Arnold Milfort—celebrity stylist for the who’s who in the entertainment and fashion world, we’ve got them all to spill the beans on what their creative process is and what went into making them who they are today.

Next up, we have fashion editor and columnist Manish Mishra exploring the symbiotic relationship between fashion and music and also, what gets luxury brands to venture into the hospitality space. Alongside, we also take a little detour and give you a sneak peek of our New York Fashion Week (NYFW) A/W 2024 show that happened in February. Since we’re on the subject of NYFW, we’ve also shared with you the idea and inception of the saree-shirt—a silhouette we ourselves have proudly pioneered! Don’t miss reading our experience of being in Los Angeles for a weekend getaway after the NYFW, which was a much-needed break.

Our fashion editorials for the issue are an ode to the beauty of lakes. From the beautiful Lake Pichola in Rajasthan to the picturesque Lake Como in Italy, we bring you the best of Falguni Shane Peacock’s creations captured against scenic backdrops. Rounding up, we have our style pages that alert you about the season’s latest trends, style must-haves and some fashion advice for a chic summer.
