When hit machine Justin Bieber plans to come to India for his Purpose World Tour by White Fox, we Indians begin the prep! As India is known for its hospitality and rich culture, it only makes sense for us to keep up with the reputation. That’s why talented Indian designers such as Rohit Bal, Varun Bahl, Anamika Khanna, Krishna Mehta, Amit Aggarwal, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, Manav Gangwani and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, have come together to give JB some uber cool custom made gifts. Take a look at what they have curated:

 1.Varun Bahl curates embellished traditional Indian instruments of symphony.

“Music is the soul of communication which knows no boundaries. The sitar and tabla reflect the core of Indian traditional music, embracing the dynamic culture we hail from. Adorned in Varun Bahl’s signature floral motifs and intricate embroideries, the instrument when presented to Justin Bieber, one of the biggest music icons of today’s world, symbolises the inter culture amalgamation of our cosmos.” – Varun Bahl

2. Rohit Bal will be creating a biker jacket in cotton velvet for Justin Bieber.

“ The jacket is an amalgamation of Justin’s personal style, Indian music and my vision of a cross cultural fashion statement. I have tried to inculcate elements from the rich music lineage of our country in the form of beautiful classical string instruments like the Sitar, Sarangi and Veena. These are finely embroidered and handcrafted with over 10,000 crystals from Swarovski on luxurious velvet. Blending in with the instruments are my signature Indian lotus motifs. The concept behind the jacket is to create a versatile look that is suitable for an event or performance with a hint of understated opulence and a sense of Indian tradition.” – Rohit Bal

3. Anamika Khanna will be creating a wardrobe for Justin Bieber’s mother.

“It is indeed an honour to be creating an outfit for Justin’s mom and to be able to showcase the indigenous craft we have here, though modern enough to be worn anywhere in the world. The idea was to give her a flavour of our craft , yet not overwhelm her with the silhouette.” -Anamika Khanna

4. Riddhima Kapoor Sahni will be gifting a bespoke wreath shaped necklace embellished in ornate rubies and marquise diamonds encrusted in platinum and 18k gold to Bieber’s mother.

“In the 1880’s, French jewelers called the ruby the gem of gems. Philosophies say red is the colour of the heart. We have drawn inspiration from the ruby’s fiery nature to create a collection that champions passion and success. Bieber is a youth icon who everyone loves but the pillar of strength in his life has been his mother and it’s a tribute to this brilliant woman.” – Riddhima Kapoor Sahni

5. Amit Aggarwal is creating a jacket in khadi that has metallic hints with malleable recycled polymer sheet used on the sleeves fusing traditional weaves with industrial waste.

“I am aim at applying heritage textiles along with sustainable materials that morph the traditional idea of beauty with a progressive aesthetic. This is a marriage between vintage and modern, the charm of the old and the new world.” -Amit Aggarwal

6. Krishna Mehta has created an Indo western formal shirt with modern, geometric lines and metallic threads.

“We have taken a step back from our typically bright colour palette in this particular piece. We wanted to achieve a fierce look, much like the super star himself, and his work – An homage to the singer’s character and stage persona. However, his incredibly effervescent personality demands a pop of eccentricity; we therefore created a versatile indo-western look that is just the right amount of edgy, and just the right amount of ethnic.” – Krishna Mehta

7. Manav Gangwani has created special sneakers & caps.

“I hope the teen heartthrob enjoys a little touch of India. Most foreign artists love peacock feathers and snake symbols in their outfits when they come to India and hence I created this on the accessories.”
