Suit up! Shivaan Ghai talks love for floral jackets, his Dolce & Gabanna collection, Daniel Craig's fashion style

The COO of The Brooklyn Creamery says a crumpled shirt can ruin a look.

Ghai's first suit was tailored by a boutique in Hong Kong.
Shivaan Ghai, COO, The Brooklyn Creamery, has a candid conversation about his favourite suits, his love for House of Bijan and accessorising his outfits.

My first suit
“I was five-years old when I wore a suit to a family wedding. My first suit was tailored by a boutique in Hong Kong. However, I was too young to give any inputs. The best I have ever felt in a suit was during my high school graduation.”


Thread count
“At the moment, I have about 15 suits. However, my go-to look is usually a blazer or my casual black sports jacket.”

Crazy cool
“The most experimental jacket I wore was a canary yellow blazer at my friend’s bar-mitzvah last summer in Portugal. I like floral jackets. I love the roses jacquard coat from a previous collection of Dolce & Gabanna.”

Brand speak

“I wear all kinds of brands. From Zara, Derek Rose and Lululemon to Tom Ford and Berluti. The last suit I bought was a navy blue one from Herringbone & Sui for my college graduation from New York University.”

Wish list
“I’d like to get a suit tailored from the House Of Bijan. The quality and bespoke designs appeal to me.”

Suit basics
“When it comes to wearing a suit, one thing that is often overlooked is the weather. I always keep in mind the climate and city I’m in when wearing a suit. Apart from that, the fit must be great and a good fabric is a must. You also have to keep an eye on your shirt — a badly ironed shirt can ruin the whole look.”

A for accessories
“When I’m wearing a suit, I like to pair it with a striking pocket square. I’m also a big watch guy, so a nice timepiece coupled with a stylish belt and shoes does the trick. Wearing a suit with sneakers? It’s a yes from me.”

Suit storage

“Use a sturdy hanger to keep the shape and cover it with a garment bag to protect it from dust.”

Celeb style
“Daniel Craig carries off a suit well.”.

The couple had a traditional South Indian wedding that was solemnised in the day. A reception followed in the evening at a five-star hotel in Bengaluru. Rohan Murty kept it simple in a beige kurta while his bride wore a white, floral-printed lehenga with a heavy neck-piece.


Cupid struck three years ago when the couple had met through a common friend. It was only earlier this year they made their relationship public when they decided to make things official. Murty has a PhD in Computer Science from Harvard University, and is a Junior Fellow at the Society of Fellows of the University.


Krishnan, who lives in Bengaluru, did her initial schooling in India and later got a scholarship to the United World College in Canada. An economics graduate from the Dartmouth College in the US, she has worked at McKinsey and Sequoia Capital in India. Her mother, Savithri Krishnan, is a retired SBI employee, while her father KR Krishnan served in the Indian Navy as a Commander.
