The boutique offers the exclusive P-TRAINER™ PRZM sneaker (pictured here on Kriti Kharbanda), which was born from a collaboration with the Amazon Prime Video Movie, Cinderella. The sneaker is based on a novel interpretation of the glass slipper.

Offering a comprehensive range of the Autumn Winter 2021 collection, designed by Creative Director Andrea Pompilio, Onitsuka Tiger’s latest collection is inspired by

the majestic nature of the towering Himalayas in winter and the trekking and hiking boom of the 1970s.

With the colder climate approaching in India, fashion lovers will appreciate the lifestyle technology specialized in functionality that is the origin of Onitsuka Tiger, as well as the brand's aesthetic design details that are full of craftsmanship with meticulous attention to detail. The key apparel items in the collection can be found in the fleece material, which is excellent for keeping warm and preventing cold during winter mountaineering, and the nylon series, which offers a fusion of dazzling neon colours and intricate and unique embroidery stitches. The collection also offers creative styling that makes use of minimalist design items. Puffer coats as well as striped jackets and dresses create a lean and modish vibe.

In Onitsuka Tiger’s collection of contemporary footwear, the latest models combine archival elements with contemporary designs which include boots with a strong grip as well as the HMR PEAK BOOT, which has been updated in design and functionality for a modern lifestyle. And, bigger is always better with the BIG LOGO TRAINER 2.0 PUFFED model. The style consists of an ankle height upper and iconic Onitsuka Tiger Stripes, which stretch boldly to the bottom of the outer sole. The area around the opening and instep has been carefully formed to deliver a comfortable fit that wraps around the foot. The upper is made of a combination of different materials with a tonal colorway and features a height that complements a wide range of styles.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
