The Summer Issue
Amidst this lockdown and global pandemic, our cover star Diana Penty infuses a minimal essence to summer dressing and emphasises on living a wholesome, happy life and the importance of being content. Making the best of a bad situation, tough times like these inspire positive change and shake us out of our comfort zones to think differently. Sharbendu De’s visual tribute to the Lisu people of Arunachal Pradesh is one such story that discards the colonial gaze of representing tribes in a primitive manner, but sheds light on their thoughts and dreams instead of exoticising their bodies and costumes. Our opinion piece, Winds of Change talks about how the Fashion Industry will rise to the occasion and move towards making better choices towards the future. On a lighter note, we have a fun cocktail quiz with recipes you can recreate in the comfort of your homes.
The New Year Issue
2020 brings a fresh start, a new hope and a lot of changes. We’re kickstarting the year on a high note with our cover star Pooja Hegde celebrating the success of her film while talking about the importance of hard work and versatility as an actor. Last year also saw our first International flagship store in London’s a Grosvenor Road. The A-list shines a spotlight on some of the finest designers our London store has to offer. Apart from this, Architects of the Future celebrates the changemakers, young men and women from various walks of life who will shape the coming decade by breaking stereotypes and following their hearts to inspire change. We end this edition with a heartwarming photo essay by Chandana Puttalingaia where she takes us down the memory lane exploring the art of making pickles with her grandmother. Happy reading and we hope you have a fabulous year ahead!
