We here at MissMalini HQ are in love with Harshvardhan Kapoor’s style — truly, madly, deeply. From his fusion desi wear to his suited up looks and all the casual wear in between, we dig them all. It was only natural that we would ask him to let us pick his brains on all things style. So, here it is…
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is a reflection of what you are thinking and feeling at different points and intervals, and it can also be a projection of what you are trying to put out there.
How would you define your sense of style?
I am often very under-dressed and extremely comfortable in my everyday life, so you would find me mostly in sweatpants, rag & bone T-shirts and sneakers.
Did any film’s costumes appeal to you?
All Sofia Coppola and Terrence Malick films!
Who is your style icon?
In Bollywood, is there anyone (save for your dad) whose style appeals to you?
I like Imran Khan‘s formal wear.
Which is your favourite designer/brand?
Paul Smith and Marc Jacobs
Where do you shop from?
Most recently I shopped from a boutique in East London, but I buy stuff online and from a host of places.
What is the favourite item in your wardrobe?
A Marc Jacobs winter jacket that I bought from the store in East Village when I was 17 — and it still fits me perfectly. It is the softest jacket ever and was quite expensive. And my collection of sweatpants!
Ranbir Kapoor is a bona fide sneaker-head and has amassed a mind-boggling collection of sneakers; Fawad Khan has a large collection of pocket squares and Gucci Horesebit loafers. Do you have any such sartorial obsession?
Do you keep up with trends? If yes, how?
I am not one for trends.
