ScreenShot2016-08-22at2.43.33am

I discovered the Burlap People a few months ago on Instagram and the use of burlap for their designs caught my eye. I’d previously associated burlap with gunny sacks and love the idea of transforming this rugged and utilitarian fabric into aesthetically striking designs. Come time to invest in a daily use handbag; I knew I was going to give The Burlap People a whirl. …

#GuestPost: The long and short of it

I love my teeny tiny bought from Mango shorts. When I wear them, my male friends ask me whom I’m trying to entice? And my husband thinks they are skanky.

In fact, consider them the new neutral: a blank canvas on which anything is possible. We aren’t kidding, …

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 …
