When you shoot at a monumental place in the city of djinns, its beyond understanding and management…what is to be expected. Seen by too many, haunted by lovers and administered by chaos…the astrological space consumed by time and valued by historians; Jantar Mantar is more than a scientific treat.
Going back– Built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh of Jaipur, made 5 of these structures as Jantar’s (instrument or machine) to Mantar (calculate/measure). The first one built in the city palace, Jaipur and then so forth in Delhi, Varanasi, Ujjain etc. The biggest sundial in the world resides there and is a part of UNESCO’S world heritage site. Completed in New Delhi in 1724 featuring 3 instruments tracing the north pole, stars and the longest/shortest days of the year respectively.
Brand– United Colors of Benetton! Ironically this clothing company has been a part of our wardrobe since we can remember opening our eyes and has no relevance to fashion and time for us.
Zoya’s Look- S/S’17
Zoya chose the woven stripe shirt and denim dress which she wore underneath as a skirt with Nike trainers. The outfit is a part of the spring/summer ’17 collection of Benetton.
Zina’s Look #ownknit

The knit collection is a special campaign which the brand has launched all over the world featuring these light knits which can be worn throughout the year. Styled here with the stripe canvas bag by them too. A hat by Massimo Dutti picked up from London over a holiday and shoes by Vanilla Moon.
She was travelling in this dimension where these walls of mystery carrying stories led her to another one who found herself in the abstract. One must loose themselves in their surroundings to be found.

Thank you PR PUNDIT and the team for reaching out and making this collaboration possible. United Color’s of Benetton for dressing us up since 1990. Siddhant Chawla for being so efficient and understanding our vision. Maharaja Jai Singh for creating beauty and sharing this grandeur.
You can shop and find these looks at a store near you in the malls or stand alone around the country. We selected these from the store at DLF Promenade mall, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
The guards at the site were highly angry and it was almost amusing to see this frustration though I don’t recommend trespassing at any cost! Thank you!
To my soulmate, Zoya. I’d find you in any plane and in any galaxy! Now I’m done being cheesy xx
Zina (from the same planet as yours) for TERRIBLE TWOS
