Its still freezing around the world.

Here in Nairobi its a little cloudy and rainy.

Ive had so many requests to create a winter look book and since I just got many sweaters from the UK, it was the perfect time to do so.

Retro Fever

I feel like I belong to the era when sexiness and seduction paired beautifully.

High sophisticated style and a glamorous demeanour were at a all time high.

One afternoon I thought of this time and created my very own look book taking it back. . .

Fever!

Enjoy!

Christian Louboutin X Sabyasachi

East meets West!

Probably the best collaboration ever!

Having been a Louboutin lover for ages and being a Kenyan Indian I couldn’t be happier when this amazing duo came together to create what I can only call a marvel!

Watch the video below where I explain in detail how they met and the story behind these iconic shoes. Love & Lite x

Meeting Christian Louboutin!

This has already been one of the best years for me!

I met the man I have dreamt of meeting for years on end. Its true that I am a obsessed fan of his creations.

Christian’s shoes have been my love for as long as I can remember and to dream of meeting him some day seemed far fetched to be honest.

Dreams are valid they say and I now reaffirm that statement every day of my life.

One evening I received an email asking me to attend a private shoe signing with Christian, at his Mount street store in Mayfair, London.

I almost fell off my chair! I was in total shock and elated.

So I began packing and I was off to London to meet the Shoe God himself.

I met him on the evening of my arrival and I can tell you that these were some most memorable fifteen minutes of my life.

We spoke at length about shoes, him visiting Africa, he also took a look at my closet and knew I’m a fan!

I can’t describe in words this amazing meeting and feeling. So I shall just leave you all with some pictures to look at and enjoy!

Love & Lite xx

Fashion, Gucci

The Gucci Effect

Its no secret that Gucci has been one of the fashion houses that has taken a new turn overnight!

Thanks to current creative director Alessandro Michele.

In the fast-moving world of fashion, new collections and their copies appear every three months, and while the elegant tweeds of Chanel and stark coolness of Saint Laurent remain for the fashion elite, the rest of the world seems to be scrambling for Gucci.

Michele was promoted from within the company. But despite being well known within Gucci, having worked there since 2002 as head of accessories under both Ford and Giannini, he was virtually unheard of outside of it.

Fashion was suddenly about creativity again. Money no longer felt like the driving force, as pretty young things stomped down the runway seemingly wearing whatever they felt like. The message was crystal clear. Forget how much it costs, and wear what makes you happy.

Alessandro Michele has not just made Gucci the most in-demand brand in fashion; he has altered the entire fashion space.

Michele has also re-embraced the logo, resurrecting the neglected double G motif of Gucci’s 1980s heyday and reinterpreting it for a modern audience and hence the Gucci Marmont belt that I would love to share with you all in this blog post.

Among the Gucci Marmont bags I proudly own I bought this stunning pearl embellished belt from Mumbai Gucci store.

I thought of sharing a few ways styling this belt and also shared it on my youtube channel.

I find that it elevates any look to a grand outfit.

Hope you enjoy the looks and for outfits please do pay a visit on my youtube channel linked below.
