Punit Jasuja Keep Us Guessing About Who’s Coming to Dinner
Translating your personal style into something tangible is not easy however Punit Jasuja specializes in exactly that. Through his companies, Punit Jasuja Productions and Second Floor Studio, Punit can effortlessly turn your individual aesthetic into an elegant dinner party or thousand person wedding. Each retaining a level of intimacy and style. We sat down with the event planner slash interior designer and asked him to come up with dinner parties for some important guests. Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, Mary Katrantzou and Pero.
Olivier Rousteing’s latest Fall 16 show garnered mixed reactions; some loved it and a few more hated it. Rousteing shouldn’t be too worried since Balmain has become one of the most recognizable names in fashion due to his #BalmainArmy of rich kids and supermodels. What he has done, however is cement Balmain as a true luxury brand focusing on decadent detailing, intricate beading, corsetry and embroidery. Punit imagines a Balmain party full of high glamour, stainless steel magic and candle light glare. Think reflective glassware and gold cutlery on sleek surfaces with dark florals.
Pero’s latest collection features an all-day pyjama party where the silhouettes are flowing and relaxed with bright prints. Everyone wants to join in the fun of Pero’s sheer lace overlays, printed and striped coordinates with empire waist dresses which make for quite a different kind of dinner guest. Punit would decorate this pillow fight with bright flowers and a bohemian vibe. Raw, vegan cuisine will be served gently lit by fairy lights and linen tablecloths.
Whimsical and full of wonder, Mary Katrantzou is known for obscure prints and fanciful designs. This collection highlighted how easy it was for many of these eccentric pieces to transition into daily wear. Psychedelic separates, pencil skirts and embellished shift dressed built a collection that inspired Punit to create a scene of quirky femininity.
