a Pinch of Hope

Florals have been doing rounds in the fashion circuit for quite some time now and it has no intention, whatsoever, to leave the sartorial platform any sooner which is evident from the fact that while strolling through the streets we came across quite a lot of people flaunting their blossomy attires.

Street Shots


A smart layering of pale blue dress and off white floral shrug with black leggings and beige bloch shoes and the pearls adding elegance to her peppy look.

Subtle yet chic! An indigo mille-fleur dress teamed up with a red sling bag, brown belt, black watch and black bloch shoes.

Mille-fleur double pocket white shirt combined with cement tapered trousers and spiced up with brown blucher shoes, orange bag and grey scarf.
Snazzy cute chick wearing strapless blossom dress, peach long jacket, accessorized with a floral hair band, messenger bag and tribal sandals.

Laid back lass! All-over floral printed knotted crop top layered over a contrast pink top and teamed up with black denims and pink woody wedges.

All-over floral printed dress layered over black stockings and belts and bronze hand bag brings out a very classic ease look.

International Trends

  Brands like Dolce & Gabanna, Etro, Mulberry and more have been taking floral trends to global fashion platforms.

"A Pinch of Hope"

In the midst of a pavement, on a busy boulevard, a flower sprouting out often goes unnoticed, but when it catches the eye one cannot help but take a second glance to admire the pinch of color in the monotonous urban milieu. Our September story, “A Pinch of Hope”, thus, serves as an inspiration which adds a perky-frisky flare to a dull and dreary metropolitan setup.

 Studio Shots
Here goes a little glam girl topping her corset tube mini dress with a sequenced cement bolero. Color blocked ankle booties add high fashion quotient accessorized with multiple metal neck chains .
The man brings flora into the story as an accent on his jacket along with an abstract floral printed shirt worn below a black multi pocketed bomber jacket teamed with his favourite denims.
The damsel wears her smocked balloon dress where a slight touch of flora peeps out from her sleeves adding a girly layered feel.
Gear up for a mischievous game of Hide n Seek where the neo damsel in distress waits to be rescued by her Hero from this concrete jungle.

The country lad wears flora in a laid back voile shirt worn sloppy over his over dyed industrial cargo bottoms, topped up with roll ups and a sleek waist coat where the fedora plays an important role in completing the look.

a Pinch of Hope brings to u “Flower Power”

The Glam Girl, Dandy Boy,The Young Maiden and The Adventure Chick.

Glam girl wears it as a floral printed one shoulder tunic teamed up with a black leather belt and pink ballet kitten heels.

Dandy boy teams up his floral scarf with a slim fit shirt and a knit grey cape, worn over slim denims tucked inside the lid of his shoes..Adding an accent with a peach corsage.

The young maiden looks graceful in a multilayered frilly dress teamed with a floral printed bolero adding an accent of yellow with her shoes and the flower that she admires.

The adventure chick goes safari with her khaki shorts and tucked in black tee inside a safari  shirtdress..her tote bag being  the accent of floral used in her look.
