If you’re in the process of getting your wardrobe geared up for the season ahead, we’re giving you a few pointers — from sunglasses to linen capris and Mary Janes
If your social calendar for the coming festive season’s already filing up, start shopping. Menswear brand Zodiac’s has launched three new collections inspired byItalian painters. DaVinci has a combination of colours and textures that are not often seen in menswear; colours such as azure, mint, lilac, pink, tangerine and yellow are part of this line. The Mariano shirts are more classic, crafted from Italian fabric and have a more subtle use of colour, while the Raffaello line is striking and vibrant. Available at all Zodiac stores; prices start at Rs1,499.
If you want to get through the season with just one statement piece, it should be the Dior-Christal Ice White. The chalky white lacquered dial is surrounded by a bezel set with 48 diamonds. Three rows of icy white pyramid-shaped sapphire crystals are set into the links of the strap. Available at select watch stores, Rs2.36 lakh.

If you love linen you won’t need any more convincing about its properties, but here are a few more: It’s completely biodegradable and is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-static and helps repels dust. If that’s got you thinking, check out Uni Style Image’s new linen line for men and women. Choose from solid colours such as ivory, ecru and white, or pick natural yarn dyed khaki pinstripes in olive and coffee. The range for both men and women includes shirts, tunics, capris, shorts and trousers. Available at all USI stores; prices start at Rs1,195.

The idea was to design a shoe that gave the wearer a “naked ride” — a shoe engineered with only the absolute necessities for a lightweight ride. The result is the Nike Air Zoom Victory+, one of the lightest and fastest training shoes the brand has created. At all Nike stores, Rs6,200 (women) and Rs6,500 (men).
