VALKYRE We love a good in-yourface tee. And Arindam Bora’s full-on handpainted versions that blend past and present cultures are what the hypebeast ordered for a loud night out. Choose from Kanye’s lyrics or a lollipop-licking Mona Lisa splashed on to your back. Top it up with a printed denim jacket to go all out.
BISKIT The dress code for zero gravity would probably be the futuristic, space suitresembling wares being put out by visual artist Harsha Biswajit and designer Shruti Biswajit. The duo take things up a notch by ensuring all their clothes are genderfluid, for double impact.
TORAMALLY We’re constantly searching for new labels to update our closets with. And Rahul Shastri’s Tōramally is a top contender for sumptuous leather shoes – from brogues to loafers – in colours like woody brown, deep purple and wine. To really elevate your suit, opt for a bespoke serpent- or peony-printed pair and walk the talk with a cigar in one hand, and a glass of Aberlour in the other.
