Update your wardrobe with
and colour patterns
TAKING the pixel effect up a notch are
designers from Ranna Gill to Givenchy.
While the soon-to-be released animated
film Pixel is our inspiration, clearly it is
making a mark on fashion too. The
photography-inspired print makes its way
onto skirts, dresses, shoes and trousers
across runways around the globe, with
the high street following suit. Get in on the
action with our pick. Text: Aakanksha

Easy to transform from day to night,
this flared dress from Rohit Gandhi and
Rahul Khanna keeps it simple and elegant.

black strappy stilettos for the night,
we say. `32,500. At Noida.
