Blackberrys brings world music to India

 Upscale menswear and accessories brand, Blackberrys, is bringing music lovers in India an unprecedented opportunity. This year its annual flagship event Sharp Nights is organising a five-city World Music tour.



Aptly titled ‘Blackberrys Sharp Nights – Masters Of World Music’ the tour will showcase two of the world's leading world music performers, promote local musical talent and institute a scholarship fund to help conserve traditional Indian music. Now, with the music festivals being such a hit lately in India, we think there couldn’t have been a better time for a brand to do this.


The first musician to perform is Malian folk musician Fatoumata Diawara, who will perform in Delhi on November 19th at Blue Frog, Mehrauli and in Hyderabad on Nov 22nd at DurgamCheerayu Park, Jubilee Hills.


The other world renowned artiste on the tour is Malian folk Fusion and Blues guitarist and singer Vieux FarkaToure, who will perform in Pune on December 3rd, Bengaluru on December 6th and Mumbai on December 10th.

With this first-of-its-kind world music tour, Blackberrys is also providing an opportunity to home grown talents – Barmer Boys in Delhi(1st image), Catharsis in Hyderabad, Highway 61 in Pune, Shoonya in Bengaluru and Rajeev Raja Combine in Mumbai to perform on the very same stage in their respective cities.

Furthermore each concert will begin with a fashion auction which will showcase the Blackberrys AW '14 look – the proceeds of which will be used to nurture Indian traditional music schools, by providing scholarships for deserving students and funds for material support. 

In our opinion, this is a great step by Blackberry in terms of bringing India one step ahead in music scene while also giving opportunity to Indian talents and at the same time fulfilling a good cause by giving away the proceeds to Indian traditional music schools. In today’s culture of pop and hip music where we all either listen to YoYo Honey Singh or Eminem, it’s nice to be reminded of some folk music. Well done, Blackberry!

French Connection Menswear Collection Review

It's that time of the year again when you have to loosen your pockets and go shopping for the new season's key pieces. Fall has almost hit us and soon there's going to be more than just a little nip in the air. During this time, the stores get all flooded with soft knits, cozy jackets and what not and while I love talking about womenswear, I thought it would be fun to include the gentlemen of our lives as well! I can't say for everyone but the men of my house love to shop during Fall. While in Summer, they get to wear the basic shirt or t-shirt, Fall brings a whole platter of variety for them to experiment with. There are cardigans, sweatshirts, hoodies, jackets, leather jackets, pullovers, caps, scarves and the list goes on!

When we were given a chance to review the new menswear collection at the French Connection store, we readily accepted. We are already loyal customers of the brand and when one of your favorite brands asks you to come over, have a look at the collection and share your thoughts on the same, how can you not accept!

It was so easy to get distracted by the womenswear collection they had but I was determined about not ignoring the menswear section this time around and giving them the attention that they deserve. Have a look at the collection, the pictures speak louder than words:



Aman could hardly contain his happy after-shopping-smile! The new collection has knits, cardigans, chino pants, etc in myriad of colors. The knit material used for the cardigans and pullover are really soft, cozy and durable. The textures and color blocking are the highlights of the collection and the cozy shirts in tartan check print were my favorite. If you happen to be around French Connection store, drop by to have a look at the collection, I am sure you will not be disappointed if you are looking for smart casuals. 

xoxo,
Stay Fab!
