JULY 2021 | EDITORS NOTE
Ahead of the couture season, we bring you this year’s inaugural couture issue with our all-time favourite cover muse — Janhvi Kapoor — an absolute bundle of vivacious energy in our cover story A Star Uninterrupted. Kapoor, who stars on our cover for the third time, has been a delight to shoot with as always. From Girl on the Rise to Woman of Tomorrow, we’ve seen her grow to be the star that she is today, taking off on an uninterrupted plane of success. Kapoor has carved a niche for herself in the Indian film industry and earned the stature of a successful star by her sheer talent and grit. We are nothing less than proud to see her upward trajectory since her debut that reflects as much in her work as in her personality. For our July 2021 cover, we shot Kapoor at the towering St. Regis in Mumbai, adhering to the mandatory COVID-19 protocols . Here in a tell-all interview, Kapoor opens up about her multifaceted persona straddling the role of an actor, dancer or even that of a sister.
Keeping couture at the centrestage, we have celebrity stylists Aastha Sharma, Eshaa Amiin, Mohit Rai and Nupur Mehta Puri picking their favourite Falguni Shane Peacock ensembles for a spectrum of wedding functions. We also have bride, fashionista and blogger, Juhi Godambe talking about her wedding and her dolled-up moments in a statement Falguni Shane Peacock Lehenga.
Next, we bring you feature stories on eminent personalities from around the world and all walks of life, who have made it big in their own fields. Following close, we have noted columnists Manish Mishra, Priyanka Parkash Sachdeva and Rebecca Suhrawardi as guest contributors, who have written, enlisted and opined on topics that range from fashion policing to brown skin beauty and couture perfumes.
Our fashion editorials for the issue are an ode to the beauty of India. With Falguni Shane Peacock’s trail across the country from the desert lands of Rajasthan to the picturesque Meghalaya, we bring you experiential couture captured against the scenic backdrops. Set before the second wave of COVID-19, our Meghalaya travelogue could barely capture the beauty and the warm hospitality of the state and its Chief Minister, but we have attempted our best to give you a glimpse of this beautiful, vibrant state.
Rounding up, we have fashion layouts that alert you about the season’s latest fashion trends, style lookbooks and tidbits of fashion advice that will keep your style file updated.
We sign off but not before a little announcement about the launch of our travel magazine. Travel Peacock Magazine – TPM will be out soon! We are immensely excited to take you all on virtual escapes or help you plan yours with this magazine. So, keep an eye on the stands!
