Your new line is a slight departure from your signature style.
It was a conscious decision because it’s my sub label, which is younger and is meant for a more city smart cosmopolitan crowd. It’s a little edgier and sexier, but it still has the mandates of the brand.

What’s your personal style statement?
Easy. I like wearing simple understated clothes.

Your five must-haves?
A Pashmina shawl because I feel cold in flights and I travel a lot so an airport warmer is an essential. A moisturiser because I sleep better with that. A belt because it keeps your trousers from falling, a pair of jeans because you can wear it almost anywhere and a white shirt.

A complete no-no for you?
Speedos on the beach

Colour of the season?
Its beings said that marsala is the colour of the season, but personally I like military green.

A must-have in Mumbai?
For a woman it should be a cotton dress because you can spruce it up and spruce it down and a linen shirt for a man because these work well in palmy weather.

What are you passionate about other than designing clothes?
All sorts of food. I don’t have a favourite cuisine. If it’s well cooked, hot and fresh, I’ll eat anything.

Favourite shopping stop?
I like shopping in London because you get practically everything there from the outrageous to the most sublime.

Fail-safe day and evening wear?
A little black dress for a woman and a white starched shirt for a man during the night. A printed summer dress for a woman and a linen shirt for a man during the day.
