Is this the same woman who wore the black dress with the yellow flats in india, who you said was like Audrey Hepburn? Either way, I think she is very beautiful and I love her menswear look with the silver eye makeup.
May 22, 2008 at 6:51 pm
Love her eye liner in the top photo – looks great!
These profiles are fun – I hope you continue them
May 22, 2008 at 6:55 pm
She is gorgeous and the silver eyeliner is genius on her complexion. Her style almost seems rebellious.
May 22, 2008 at 7:00 pm
She´s stunning!I undestand her very well cause i´m from a third world contry, too.Fashion is harder in there.
May 22, 2008 at 7:09 pm
She looks so fresh, it seems like she has a certain rawness to her. Very beautiful.
May 22, 2008 at 7:15 pm
Nice profile !
May 22, 2008 at 7:17 pm
Nice profile !Quite interesting…
May 22, 2008 at 7:25 pm
I love this style profile, articulate and funny.
May 22, 2008 at 7:29 pm
I wish she were my best friend. She’s wonderful, unpretentious and open.
May 22, 2008 at 8:12 pm
She sounds super lovely, and looks it as well.
May 22, 2008 at 8:26 pm
I love the colours of the pellets on her shirt but the trousers let the entire outfit down, they look a little too much like jammies.
pretty kitty publishing
May 22, 2008 at 8:29 pm
I would love to see some of her designs.
May 22, 2008 at 8:34 pm
Gorgeous, fascinating girl. She seems to teeter between sophistication and nonchalance impeccably.
May 22, 2008 at 8:35 pm
i loved when you posted her looks before. i am even more excited to learn more about her.
more more more… how do you like it, how do you like it…
i love these profiles!
May 22, 2008 at 8:58 pm
She is gorgeous!Great profle –I want to be friends with her.
May 22, 2008 at 9:04 pm
i want to be her friend too!
May 22, 2008 at 9:53 pm
Love that she splurges on quality inner wear…I know that we all should do that—everything would look and feel better (just check out how the outer things look on her)—though it is hard to do. Seems a bit self-indulgent to splurge on the inner things–but, if it actually enhances the look and boosts one’s confidence, why not? And, a she’s a fellow rower! I love that, too.

“No guilt in pleasures”
I like her.
May 22, 2008 at 11:16 pm
Very nice profile. Interesting! I like positive news of life!
May 22, 2008 at 11:29 pm
I just love her modesty and sincerity. I think this is the best/most interesting style profile you’ve done so far.
May 22, 2008 at 11:58 pm
Sohiny, I hope you keep the Sartorialist up to date with your doings and he lets us know.
We’ve all sort of fallen in love with you here!
Plus, a girl who proudly sported her own creation disaster haircut is a girl after my own heart.
Over here in my dusty place, I’ll take your fashion approach as inspiration.

I disagree about her trousers. I think they just add to her personal style.. I love fashion but as a sport enthusiast/runner sometimes it’s hard to find fashionable ‘comfy’ clothes. I believe that her being a rower really explains the trousers.
my question is: does anyone know where I could get a similar pair?
May 23, 2008 at 12:29 am
it’s really cool to read the profile thing. i feel like a weird stalker, but i loved the grey eye makeup photo you published a few months and actually got a bit excited by this… creepy, in a way :S
May 23, 2008 at 12:34 am
She seems to have a good sense of humour about her style.
Never caught wearing?I think I’ve worn them all…disaster or not.Love her candidness!
May 23, 2008 at 12:49 am
May 23, 2008 at 2:42 am
definitely my favorite profile so far…i love her free spirited and fun personality!
May 23, 2008 at 6:01 am
She seems to be a very strong person, and she has something different in her eyes.
I use too Dior Addict!
May 23, 2008 at 6:13 am
@paperbagprincess:those trousers are from a pavement market in Calcutta. They’re actually houndstooth stretch pyjamas..i have just worn them scrunched up..I’m guessing you’d get similar stuff anywhere..
May 23, 2008 at 6:34 am
She’s my favourite too! I think she seems really sweet & unpretentious – and I love her silver eyes in the first picture.
May 23, 2008 at 7:34 am
Love that you did a profile on Sohiny! I was really taken by her when you photographed her earlier in the year. She seems like such a great, fun person…doesn’t take ‘fashion’ too seriously and isn’t afraid to experiment and make mistakes. Definately would love to be friends with her too!
it’d be brilliant to see some of her designs…maybe that could be another post?
May 23, 2008 at 8:41 am
Dear Scott,Please do a “Style Profile” on Lino Ieluzzi. It would be so nice! Thank you!
May 23, 2008 at 8:54 am
No guilt in pleasures.wow, brilliant :)
May 23, 2008 at 9:01 am
Wonderfully down to earth.
May 23, 2008 at 9:44 am
This is the most interesting profile I’ve seen here by far. I think it’s really great you’re giving us notes from the beaten paths as well as the “regular” cities.
May 23, 2008 at 11:39 am
Love these different types of style profiles! It’s fun to hear where different menswear designers buy their suits and shoes but it’s also nice to shake things up with women, and unconventionally-dressed women at that!
May 23, 2008 at 11:54 am
Another brilliant addition. I especially like her reminder that fashion should have a sense of humour.
May 23, 2008 at 1:22 pm
Wowie! She is so stylish! Words and all..
I die over those pants. I often go back to India and stock up on slouchy trousers, pajamas, harem pants. Comfort chic!
May 23, 2008 at 2:21 pm
How lovely! To be honest, I didn’t like the other profiled people…they sounded rather pretentious. But this profile was a fun read, Sohiny sounds so upbeat and honest, and she looks amazing. :)
And I totally agree with her when it comes to comfortable clothes. I for one, never, ever use heels because my feet find them odious, and it’s somewhat annoying that a lot of people seem to think that there’s no way a girl can be elegant without such things :p
Nice blog, Sart!
May 23, 2008 at 3:27 pm
That shirt in the second photo–wow!
May 23, 2008 at 3:33 pm
the ‘no guilt in pleasures’ quote is one to remember.
May 23, 2008 at 4:56 pm
this girl has an awesome personality
May 23, 2008 at 6:35 pm
Love that first pic of her. The eye makeup is fab.
May 23, 2008 at 7:22 pm
I love these profiles. Would you consider doing one with the lady you’ve photographed (in Paris, I think) in overalls, and in a great black coat? And, one with The Twins from May 14?
May 23, 2008 at 8:09 pm
Yes yes yes! I was struck by the “no guilt in pleasures,” too. She’s so lovely and has a beautiful attitude. I would like to be her friend. :)
May 23, 2008 at 11:01 pm
Love the light and the colors in the bottom photo. The sunlight hitting her calf: it’s very sensual. Sohiny simmers with mystery, self-confidence and sexiness. Interview was refreshing, special. Gorgeous top & stylish, comfy pants. Wasn’t sure they worked together at first, but after reading feel it reflects her perfectly. She knows how to express herself in fashion.
May 24, 2008 at 7:04 am
Loving these profiles…
May 24, 2008 at 10:35 am
Thank you for these profiles. They are so interesting, I see them collected in a volume.
May 24, 2008 at 12:33 pm
besides “No guilt in pleasures” I also liked “Wear it with a sense of humor” as well as the use of disaster… twice! once as a noun and even better the second time as an adjective… “disaster haircut” sounds like the name of my new favorite band.

I like very much this young woman.Soulful eyes.A lack of pretension and effortless style that is refreshing.
Indeed yes, I like her very much…
May 26, 2008 at 6:26 pm
This is your best style profile. It’s great to see someone who dresses so well without pretension.
May 26, 2008 at 9:58 pm
i love this interview. she seems natural and real, plus all the designers she mention i never heard of.
she makes it look effortless, yet classy.
*thank you for putting a cultural perspective*
May 27, 2008 at 1:10 pm
Beautiful pics! And India isn’t too far behind when it comes to fashion! You can tell that by the number of luxury brands that are coming here :)
May 27, 2008 at 8:00 pm
LOVE hers shirt.
May 28, 2008 at 3:50 pm
You should check out Croatia. The locals have a very distinct/hip yet not too flashy style. I loved the subtle colors and combinations of the outfits.
May 29, 2008 at 3:42 am
Awesome! I am obsessed with orange lipstick too. May I suggest Fluorescent orange #201 by Make Up Forever. Would look so good with your complexion.I think style is being able to rework the same pieces into completely different outfits. Props!
May 29, 2008 at 3:31 pm
Most people touched on this, but “no guilt in pleasures”…
awesome profile and seems like a sweet girl.

hi !!!I was once in Leopold’s in mumbai. I felt I was sitting with modern people but in a good old 1950-60s restaurant.I love the look of the restaurant.Will be added soon on my blog.
June 4, 2008 at 7:29 am
this girl is fantastic
July 30, 2008 at 11:57 pm
I definitely have to second Goncalo’s post above…The second pic is definitely a melange of candour + Unpretentious + strong personality
September 19, 2008 at 7:24 am

I’m a proud of you.. Beautiful touch of style. Simple yet awesome.
February 5, 2012 at 11:38 am
More profiles like this one, please! I love reading about stylish women outside of NYC, MIlan and Paris. Her look is inspiring.
June 18, 2013 at 10:48 pm
If I were to describe her I would say she dresses or styles her self in sections from head to toe using what works!
August 29, 2013 at 6:14 am
Sohiny Das… You are a star and an inspiration as a friend and a fashion professional. True style is effortless and you stand exactly for just that!!!!
May 9, 2014 at 6:38 am
Love love love!!!
November 26, 2014 at 10:03 pm
such a character-inspires me a lot! I’ll always remember what she said,”Subtle is best, wear it with a sense of humor & No guilt in pleasures.”
