Fusion. Fun. Roots. My worlds colliding. East meets West then throws on a biker and smokes a Lucky Strike.

Okay so I've been wanting to try something like this for a while; the white kameez/tunic that I'm wearing is one half of a traditional sub-continent outfit "shalwar kameez" - often men wear the kurta/kameez/tunic with a pair of jeans, but I wanted to take a more formal approach, using black pants and then throwing an element of punk in the mix, in the shape of a leather biker.

I know it's a 'little' out there... but what is it they say about those who are not living life on the edge? Oh yeah, they're taking up too much room.

For the label heads/whores, designers such as Umit Benan, Michael Kors and Salvatore Ferragamo have been experimenting with this silhouette so there's some validation should you need it.

What do you think? One step too far?

Have a lovely day, full of fun and the unexpected.
