F/W 2017-18 offered us a generous glimpse into the future of the fashion industry, at the same time drawing our consideration back over our details from the bygone days of bold and poised fashion theatrics.

Reclaiming the Essence of Womanhood

While Spring/Summer 2017 runways were long done, and dusted in September 2016, now is the time when each trend actually reaches the surface and comes into its own. The season saw what everyone has been talking about for the longest time in the industry and surprisingly enough, it is not a fashion trend. Spring’17 saw the actualization of ‘see now, buy now’ at major luxury brands like Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger. Yet, […]


Wellness Luxury’s Latest Destination Value Addition for Fall/Winter 2017-18

Beginning from the early nineties to our current wardrobe, athleisure has essentially ridden on the magic carpet of fashion trends and with a few proclaiming its nearing end, we beg to disagree.

This was also the same year that Yohji Yamamoto launched a new label Y-3 with Adidas that paved way for […]

As is customary with fashion weeks, they are the best representation of current mind-sets of the world at large […]

The coming Fall/Winter season will see another wave of reimagining the nostalgic shapes of bygone eras. However, the difference this time is that it is not just about remembrance but taking comfort in the memories and trying to escape from the chaos of the present. Therefore, fabrics like wool, corduroy and suede that are the ones most in demand instantly […]


Retail Bestsellers 2016

The year 2016 was a very difficult one, especially for retail, as consumers struggled to keep their ‘shopping’ mood in place. Weak economies, terrorist attack, political instabilities, Brexit and finally the US presidential elections kept the retail scenario ‘dull’. Though the predictions for the year 2017 are also conservative, there are many factors that could change the scenario and among them is the resilient consumer who likes to shop when happy and also to drive […]
