About three years back during this time of the year I went to Rishikesh for a bungee jumping experience. After much anticipation, I did jump, and it had two outcomes—1. I overcame my fear of heights; the experience was life-altering, I felt free and content; 2. I invited lower back pain issues that stayed with me for good (I jumped the wrong way; my posture was incorrect and it resulted in bad muscle pull).
Rajesh Pratap Singh’s first collection of saris was presented at Ekaya recently–a contemporary bespoke label presenting the finest textiles from Benaras; this was in fact the outcome of years he spent developing and researching handloom techniques. The collection comprised of ikat weaves in strong geometric motifs, a recurrent theme from the brand; ajrak prints, which have been given a new twist and cotton silk chanderis.
Baroque is all about simplicity, elegance in design, effectiveness in use and adding fun to functionality. Their products stress on utility and the growing need for fashion to translate through the day.
The first Bulgari watches were made in the 1920’s, but it was only at the end of the 1970’s that the firm presented its first important collection. In 1982 Bulgari founded the company ‘Bulgari Time’ in Neuchâtel, the heart of Swiss horology. This company now has over 500 employees, who are responsible for overseeing and inspecting the creation and production of all Bulgari watches.
Ambience- As I stepped into Kylin Premier at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, warm hospitality and pompous ambience blanketed me with much love—a perfect ending to a rather hectic Friday! Me and my partner were guided to the rooftop of the restaurant, wherein small cabana-sort setups, placed neatly in sync with the layout of the floor awaited us. We chose a corner for us—lit by a candle and enveloped by pristine white drapes. The area was well lit, with balmy breeze adding on to the romance quotient. Music was varied; genres like, house, lounge, soft trance and techno were floating in the backdrop in subtle tones.
