file-page10

The Red Door   In Feng Shui, a red door symbolizes the Mouth Of Chi, a place from where energy enters a home. In Chinese homes, all front doors are painted this colour to welcome good vibes to the residents. The effect that CHOLA’s Fall 2016 collection will have on its wearers is similar. Each piece of clothing is a sheath against the chaotic world; the …

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 2.21.54 am

Tania Fadte has taken the long play-hard-but-work-harder road to get to where she is now. She has been a stylist since 2005 after moving to Bombay from Goa. Her debut collection Mogachea is a nod to that journey; every minute thread is laced together in designs that are, quite evidently, labours of love. With personalised block and digital prints — each created by Tania — …

Look Books We Love: Chola the label’s Grown up hippies

CHOLAGROWNUPHIPPIE-page-001

Chola was one of the most self-assured debuts at Lakme Fashion Week 2016. The brand and its founder (our co-founder) Sohaya Misra also won Grazia’s Young Designer of the Year. What’s all the hype about, you ask? We say the hype is the simplicity in her clothing; the fall of her fabrics; the funny way in which all the CHOLAs make you feel like you’re …

Lookbooks We Love: DRVV Fall 2015

Three years since he launched the luxury apparel brand DRVV, Dhruv Kapur has shrugged off the whiz kid tag to don a silk-lined wizard’s cape. The label’s Fall 2015 lookbook should be titled Thus Spake Kapur. Photographed by Bikramjit Bose, and styled by Tania Fadte, DRVV’s woman is no-nonsense, and no fuss. She’s likely to confess that her wardrobe comprises three colours— grey, white, and black. She will …

Lookbooks We Love: PELLA Resort 2015

But real action is in silent moments. The epochs of our life are not in the visible facts of our choice of a calling, our marriage, our acquisition of an office, and the like, but in a silent thought by the wayside as we walk; in a thought which revises our entire manner of life, and says, -'Thus hast thou done, but it were better thus ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

PELLA is the brainchild of 24-year-old designer Priyanka Ella Lorena Lama. The brand’s ethereal and elegant aesthetic is pitch-perfect #PyjamaStyle. With references of cherry blossoms and geisha life, her Resort 2015 collection puts a zing in Zen. Take a gander at  our favourite looks, it’s better than therapy, we promise! Here’s the complete LookBook — We’re always looking for new designers to showcase. So, if you’ve got a lookbook you …
