Aakriti Rana Gill explores luxury at its best | GQ India | GQ Gears

F2A6047-1


Luxury is a rather sparsely understood concept. You might be living in a sea facing bungalow with all comforts possible, and yet not feel the real comforts that luxury should bring. Leading a busy city life can be taxing on both the mind and the body. The relentless traffic, noise, pollution and varying sources of stress can defeat the whole purpose of leading a luxurious lifestyle.

Today, none of these seem to affect us as we begin the Lexus Escapade with a very special artist who is all set to explore the Lexus life in the Lexus NX 300h F. The Lexus Escapade is a special initiative in which we give artists from all walks of life the chance to go on amazing journeys, so they can experience the lifestyle that we call Lexus.

Lifestyle blogger Aakriti Rana Gill is a girl on the go. From occupying front-rows at fashion week to blogging about lifestyle and travelling, this girl has her plate full. But she was only too happy to take a break from her hectic schedule to be our travel companion for this refreshing escapade. “I believe in travelling with spontaneous plans and more freedom. An open highway and NX just makes it better,” she said.

It is easy to get lost in the chaos of a busy life. With a blog which attracts thousands of viewers, over five hundred thousand followers on Instagram, and invites to every happening event in the city, Aakriti knows this best. Yet, she makes sure to take out some time to unplug and relax every single day. She knows how best to combine luxury and fitness by taking an early morning run by the sea. Being a tennis player, she often takes to the court to destress. “Sport for me is a lifestyle, and one way I live that philosophy is through tennis.”

Spending her days cruising through the city in the Lexus NX 300h F, Aakriti was able to see the city with a new pair of eyes. The panoramic roof was the perfect enabler for her to enjoy the sea-link view.

She spent a good deal of time shopping her perfect outfit for the evening, and then visited her dear old friend, Marine Drive. Leaning against her car, she let her hair dance with the waves, as the sea breeze lifted her spirits.

Taking some time out away from the city proved to be an even more fruitful experience. She was in no hurry to reach Goa, a city she adored. “As I moved ahead, I realized it’s not about the destination. It’s about the journey,” she said, making it a point to stop and soak in the beauty at every picturesque stop on the way. Clutching the wheel in her hand, she was overwhelmed with the rush of the powerful drive on the Mumbai-Pune highway.

Goa welcomed her with open arms. “Sun, sea and sand. The three things I love chasing,” Aakriti said. She was particularly amazed by the seamless manner in which the Lexus NX 300h F adapted to different terrains in and outside of the city, giving her journey the touch of luxury, it needed.

Aakriti left us with her brilliant smile, and the promise to never forget the magic of a wonderful drive.

This was a two-week collaboration between Aakriti Rana Gill and Lexus NX 300h F as a part of the Lexus Escapade. Follow Lexus India on Instagram to experience this exciting escapade.
