Cold & Coveralls are here to stay for our winter special where everyone is enclosed within their confined spaces and comfort. We are always in the zone to be all gloomy and withdrawn with dull and light hues. Why not brighten up this chilly weather by bringing in those radiant colors and patterns.
Presenting a collection from our selected designers on the website, The Yogi and Absolute Pashmina. They’re here for you to set a trend and get out of those safe places and explore. This one’s for the free spirited woman clenching to get out from within and otherwise.


This designer collection is all about kantha fabric and patch work. What seemed outdated is back in trend with bright hues and embroidery. What’s amazingly appealing about the collection is the touch of indo western ensembles. There is a perfect blend of ethnic traditions sandwiched with a western outlook.
The anti fit silhouette calls for that free spirited woman deserted somewhere. To claw her way back for an artisanal revival speaks volumes about the modern day woman that she is today. Shoutout to such personalities and such ensembles. Go grab your exquisite range now.


A walk down memory lane takes, Poonam Virk, the founder of Absolute Pashmina to the heart and soul of the brand. ‘The beautiful heirlooms passed on to me by my grandmother, inspired me to design’, she says. “Married into a family of polo players who adore and live horses, hugely inspired me to weave my passion into a luxury product” she adds. The global vision of the brand is to communicate the plush indian heritage to an esteemed clientele/niche . The mission manifests a devotion to provide superlative quality fabric and an unprecedented/peerless customer experience. Proud pioneers in manufacturing superior quality Pashmina (100% cashmere),we find our roots in the Valleys of Kashmir. The prolific karigars indulge in intricate devising of the handspun pieces.

The premium product line embodies the rich equestrian lifestyle blended with Indian culture primarily in shades of The Wedding Collection-Vintage border (limited edition), exotic silk. Each piece is hand spun and is breathed life into, with detailed customisation. Some pieces take over 200 days to manufacture and are made by one man because if touched by another, the weaving style changes. The antiques and limited edition detailing is sourced from the gharanas of Jaipur, Punjab, Varanasi and beyond.

Band, Baaja, Bridesmaid. This one is all about those bridesmaid’s attires which you adorn. We all have experienced the elation and the the load of a bridesmaid’s duty. If not more, we feel equally vital to our very own bride and her wedding mania. With the buck load of responsibilities comes the pressure of sporting that ideal ensemble.

One finds it extremely difficult to reach that balance where we would want to stand out from the crowd but also not much that we conceal and take away the bride’s thunder. After all, it’s her day and you’re by her side.

The Grey Halfway aka Monalisha Mahapatra shows us how to do it well and how through that trick of mixing and matching with the ideal combination of reds and blues. She calls it Marsala.

BridesMaid's Affair

“I have been doing a lot of creative boards for bridesmaids as I am also preparing for one of my best friends wedding, and i am pretty excited for that. So you know how it’s a major thing these days for the bridesmaids to stand out with different elements in the outfits or accessories? Just have a look at the dupatta I have thrown over.
I have an ideal place for you to decide and pick its called Once Upon a Trunk and I have curated my full post picking different designers that they have on board.
Marsala and Navy is one of the hottest trends right now apart from rose quartz, metallics & patches and it’s definitely here to stay, like the moon cool, calm and always there. Marsala has been one of the most powerful Pantone colours last season (2015) and seems to make ways directly to my not so sorted wardrobe because I am shamelessly in love with the compact aura of these two complimentary colours. The deep wine colour is such a change from the traditional red yet in the same family which fits perfectly for the weddings. Hope you enjoyed the visual posts as much as we did while framing them”.

The rituals of Karwa Chauth are simple- the wife goes without the basic necessities of food and water for a day for the health and longevity life of her husband. The ritual breaks when the moon appears and she is offered something sweet to eat and water to drink by her husband.

As simple as the ritual is, the questions which arise related to this festival are complex which focus on how gender biased and traditional it is. But in between , feminism and traditional lies a role of a wife.

She does not care what the world thinks of her, she isn’t torn between a feminist or a typical indian woman. She has enough worries of the world. That is not the dilemma here. She is probably just that woman who tries everything in her power to keep her marriage intact with the numerous distractions which claims her husband’s attention from work to social life. Probably she is trying to be a little more interesting than the 6-inch mobile screen in her partner’s hands.

A wife would perhaps be only interested in living her relationship with the man she is with and experiencing love in her life, which is challenging enough in itself nowadays. Hence, this doesn’t’ become a matter of a tradition or an obligation, but a simple gesture of love and affection she would want to show for her husband, which by the end of the day, is her own personal choice.

She adorns herself in those hues of reds of ethnic wear, makes her feel devoted and beautiful about herself. It doesn’t matter whether its for her husband’s attention, its just an expression of beauty redefined in those silk and banarsi sarees while upholding the modern woman expression of contemporary silhouttes too.

“Your mood determines your style” Believe it or not, we live by this rule subconsciously.We often find ourselves in those breezy, airy whites and loose pants during those scorching heats or those sheen, straight and tasteful attire when we are all about “we run the world” mood. This is reflected in our issue this month.

Vaastu Vastra is a reflection within your own self, a concept so ingenious that is rooted from one’s moods and emotions (energies) .

A woman has different roles and positions in this patriarchal society and with this, comes an amalgam of varied sentiments, temperaments, notions and opinions. Hence, through the medium of colors and elements of nature, Vaastu Vastra is all about those distinctive personalities for a different being in you.

Whether it is for that decisive, poised and gallant woman in you or the times you go into a nutshell with those boundaries and your own space, we bring to you, Vaastu Vastra, an expression of your passions and sensations through varied colors and elements of nature.

“ I believe in those heights you don’t see, I believe I can fly, I believe in those dreams, I believe.”



She lives in those dreams. She aims to reach there somewhere. Call her ambitious, or an over achiever, that’s how one seems to be. With that zeal and passion, she has that pride in her with that poise and urge to make it in this big bad world.

With the virtue of infinite patience and far-sightedness, are the attributes of a vulture. They soar at the mercy of the currents and wait for opportunities. They are creatures of the air and hence, feed at the carcass of their dreams. Arising from this element of nature, air or wind is a symbol of aspiration and inspiration and is often seen as a universal power or pure substance with hues of purples and whites.

“You make me go in my shield, perhaps that’s where I belong, that’s where I reside sometimes. Perhaps..”



Entrenched. Grounded. Protected. These are certain attributes which she can’t avoid nor shy away from but there comes a point from time to time where she goes in her shield. Away from all the troubles, all worries.

Similarly, these aspects are reflected in a turtle where they go into a shell, sheltered and locked away. Being silent and calm, this creature is rooted, just like one of the many attributes of a woman. Deriving from this grounded behavior, is the element of earth. This nature’s element shows you perseverance and consistency and since its rooted from the ground, it’s a symbol of that subtle conscious nature, comprising of earthy tones and greens.

“Humbly being present in the background, be it a backbone or rock solid to make you be in that limelight. I give you my soul here.”


There is a reason why a woman is referred to as a nurturer and a homebody. She is a backbone and a crucial, supporting role in every aspect of life. Heeding to everybody’s needs while taking a backseat when she has to, to give importance and life to others around gracefully and elegantly.

These fine features are reflected in a swan, who is venerated for her elegant grace and gentle beauty. Just like a swan is known for its noble reputation, a woman is recognized with the same significance and attracts attention for its eternal nature. With this, comes space which is ever-present, providing the other elements with an opportunity to interact and being of supporting nature filled with shades of whites and beige.


On model: Bralet and cape jacket by Pushpak Vimaan, sari by Ode To Earth, bracelets by Rhea Jewellery, anklet used as a bracelet by Ruby Raang, headband by Karleo and jutis by Mojari Flakes.




“There is freedom waiting for you, on the wafts of the sky, to be relieved, to be free..”


She could be isolated. She could be resilient. That’s how she adapts herself according to her surroundings. Let her be, let her be free. Imbibing and adopting is a part of her nature.

This is reflected in the attributes of aquatic life and marina. Just like a fish is coated and covered with scales and layers of fins and colors, a woman is entitled to have layers of emotions, all pouring to come out. Residing in water, an element of nature, she imbibes those qualities of fulfillment and giving life to living beings and the nature around.


On model: Blouse and lehenga by Purple Panchi, dupatta by Sanskriti Arts, ankelet by Ruby Raang, bracelet by Ode To Earth, earrings by Aprajita Toor and juttis by Mojari Flakes.

“The kingdom is her throne where she rules like no other. She is the queen of her words, her poise , her style.”


With her intrinsic nature of being fierce and gallant, she adorns this feature and continues to live in that aura. She needs no explanations, no reasoning, she is sufficient enough and lives by her own rules.
This is represented in the attributes of a lion who is the king of the jungle. With this comparison, comes the stern and intense edge of a woman who is fiery with that blaze and fire. Just like fire, being a manifestation of power and energy which is nature’s element of both creation and destruction, here comes a riot of bright and strong color combination of reds and black.

Male or Female? Gender? Feminine? Masculinity? Why has clothing become so restricted to these options?

Fashion is, in and of itself, this other language that we have between our bodies and the world. It’s a way to identify each other, and communicate with each other, without having to check off a box or explain ourselves. So then why has fashion become so gender oriented. People no longer want to be defined or limited by their gender as to what they can wear and this is where the “agender” fashion or lifestyle comes into play. Its not about black or white, we can live among the greys too.

The concept of agender fashion has recently gotten a lot of ink. It has been such a rigid binary for so long that it’s only now we’ve sort of started to push our boundaries and merge along. We should all feel free to explore fashion and beauty and find what works for us. So whether it stems from the fact that someone out there is not fully satisfied with the state of fashion, industry’s lack of diversity or a feeling of separation, it is to add that tad bit of confidence in people, to make that head held high with with those bow ties while your heels clack away in that poised fashion.

Labels like Dhruv Kapoor, AM:PM, Echo are going that extra edge to design garments which are not confined to gender fashion but breaching out to mixed silhouttes and colors, and breaking those stereotypes of body con wear for women or muted colors for men.

“Genderless fashion” which clubs both men and women’s tastes in accordance with your preference and style is what’s trending these days and why not? You could be teaming up your favorite pair of trousers with a dainty jacket or styling your classic shirt as half tucked in and half loose fit ,hence, forming a perfect blend of both worlds.

Call it androgynous or unisex but agender fashion is the new “it” thing whether it is your culottes paired with a crop top, or your boyfriend jeans corresponding with your casual laid back tee, everything works as long as you break those bounds.

“Don’t let people label you. There are no rules here.”
