S&N by Shantanu and Nikhil — the duo's new bridge-to-luxury label redefines occasion wear with a millennial sensibility and contemporary viibe. Celebrating pride and progressiveness, the label advocates the idea of standing tall to your beliefs and in this vein made its debut at the phygital edition of Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week with 'The Declaration 2034'.


Right from the opening of the fashion film, the looks symbolise an almost utopian world where gender fluidity, equality and evolved consciousness is our basic rights. Reminiscing India's glorious past, the collection itself rests on the pillars of minimalism, practicality and exacting standard of execution. I loved the authoritarian silhouettes, the military influences in the insignias, the subtle layering and the gender- fluid drapes — in a power palette of ivory, olive, navy and black.


True to their brand values, Shantanu and Nikhil once again expressed their love for the patrimony of couture codes while interpreting it to their will. The duo isn't just making clothes—they're making a change. Fashion is a mirror of our times and their collection symbolises the need to soldier on in the wake of the Pandemic. Even better, the military- influenced looks are styled with wearability in mind. Desirable, purely because of the sleek cut and haute design. And that's a selling point.
