Designer Radar – Waris Ahluwalia’s Best Looks + House of Waris

Luxe fans, meet Waris Ahluwalia, one of our favorite jewelry designers and fashion trendsetters. Whether you’re a cinephile, a jewelry guru, or a pop culture junkie, Waris is definitely a name to keep on your fashion radars (trust us). Here’s all you need to know about this dapper designer.

He collaborates with Indian artisans on his designs.

The Indian-born Waris moved to the U.S. with his family at age 5, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten his Eastern roots. He works closely with artisans in Rajasthan to hand-create each House of Waris piece, be it a gold and diamond statement necklace or a signature color-blocked scarf.

He’s taken his design company around the globe.

With celeb clients like Rihanna, Solange Knowles and Chloe Sevigny, the House of Waris is quickly becoming the “it” accessory design powerhouse. The company is becoming a mainstay in fashion mega-markets like Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, London, and Hong Kong — meaning Waris is a bit of a globetrotter.

He’s been known to cameo in Wes Anderson films.

If you thought you recognized Waris from his bit roles in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou or The Darjeeling Limited, you’re right. When the designer isn’t creating gorgeous jewelry or scarfs, he’s likely doing a bit of side-acting work in films by his close pal Wes Anderson.

He can’t live without his Rose-tinted Ray-Ban aviators.

The design guru calls his go-to sunglasses “the blue jeans of eyewear.” Pair those with Waris’ White Spring Courts sneakers, and you have his signature look.

Check out these five Waris Ahluwalia looks for a little fashion inspiration.
