Summer is traditionally all about florals and pastels and while we totally get that, what about those times when you just don’t feel like rainbows and sunshine? Stylist Santu Misra’s in your corner. “I wanted an almost moody approach to what are otherwise shiny, happy clothes, with a very all-dressed-up-and-nowhere-to-go vibe,” he says about the pictures below. “I love the idea of a grungier take on summer.”
For this story, Santu pulled pieces from some of India's most exciting new designers and played dress up with Arshia Ahuja, the current reigning queen of the pout (proof: above + below); so the next time a fashion spread about candy hued skirts makes you want to scream (or you just feel like hanging out in your bathroom by yourself), we’ve got you.
