The Indian Couture - Kalki Fashion

 I feel a change coming over, a shift in the understanding of what people want and what people need. Fashion in India is no longer subjected solely to mass production for the masses. With the youth finally taking over the reigns, India is set to enter the international fashion frontier with new designers and artists. 

In the past few posts you must've noticed that I mention the increase in ateliers that are finally catering to what I and many like me, love. The fashion house 'Kalki', caters to the eclectic tastes of their clientele, taking the next step from High-End to Couture; offering a fresh take on ethnic wear in all forms of pattern-cuts and silhouettes. From the stunning Lehenga-Cholis, Sarees & Salwar-Kurtas with intricate embellished and embroidered details, to the exclusively designed wedding trousseau in an array of high-quality fabrics and in an assortment of over thousand varied styles, 'Kalki' is yet another ultimate shopping spot to stop at.

'Kalki' puts aside the stereotypical approach of apparel making in India, and ups the ante with a fusion of the old and the new along with a variety of embellishing and embroidery techniques.

Basics Done Right - Diesel + Kanso

As a person who's constantly on the hunt for something new, something relevant, the DIESEL 'Denim Master Studio', was truly a breath of fresh air. They've already been a massive hit in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore, and now, finally they've brought it to Pune. This concept by DIESEL is something that I feel truly would appeal to everybody. The 'Denim Master Studio' is where you've to be if you're one who loves customised denims, be it your jeans and/or jackets. You get a tête-à-tête with the 'Denim Masters', who've been trained under strict guidance in Italy, to assist the clientele in sharing their ideas of customisation.

 It was on a day like any other, nothing beyond the ordinary; that was until I entered the DIESEL 'Denim Master Studio'.

Kenzo x H&M is a collaboration that speaks to the world.  
We have been treated to enticing tidbits ever since the news was announced about this collaboration back in May, but the anticipation is finally over. The much buzzed about collaboration between Kenzo and H&M was launched worldwide this month on the 3rd.  
The collection captures the colourful and vibrant essence from the world of Kenzo, while collaborating with H&M to reach out to a wider audience, which is what the Paris based brand was going for.
