Floral beauty

OSAA celebrates the rich textiles, colours and embroidery of India with the classical arts of the Orient – an East-meets-East amalgam. Their Wisteria Lane collection draws on designer Adarsh’s boundless fascination for the east – in Japan, the ‘flower viewing’ customs that ask you to enjoy the transient beauty of blooms. Ikebana, the sixth century Japanese flower arrangement art, is the muse behind OSAA’s new collection. Designed by Adarsh, the line interprets the simplicity of composition and colours of Ikebana art. It is an exploration of floral balance through space and asymmetry.

Deck chair stripes

Designer Arpita Mehta has given deck chair stripes a modern update in her Winter/ Festive ’18 Collection, 'La Fleur'. The collection adapts this classic staple in an innovative palette against the backdrop of saris, capes, tops and pants. In sum, Arpita Mehta has introduced a hint of fun and glamour in traditional clothes.


Prerana Nagpal’s label, literally translating into Empress, ’Czarina’ draws inspiration from the ostentatious Winter Palace and its magnificent architecture in the historic city of St. Petersburg, Russia. The collection’s key element is the hand cut and appliqued leather flowers embedded in a colourful lattice of thread embroidery, exemplifying the ornate detailing of the floral patterns on the palace walls. The palace arches and columns are translated into subtle pleated detailing on the garments. With soft hues of lavender and peach to mid tones of blue and wine, the collection offers a variety of looks for the festive season.

A vintage theme

The second edition of Polkaa Dots is back, with its  thematic and season-based experience. This time ‘Vintage’ is the central theme around which  Archana Kocchar and Pooja Dhakaad have curated an exclusive line-up of unique brands from across the country. Brands like Joolry by Karishma Mehra, Naina Seth, Saloni Khandelwal, Urmila Palrecha, Nayana Ensemble, to name a few. So save the date, and don’t forget to take your friends along!
