MAX Fashion Play: Max Fashion Spring Summer 2015 Collection

Remember my trip to Mumbai last month for the Max ss15 preview? A tad too late but this trip needed a detailed recap for all.

To begin with I have a confession to make. This happened to be my first trip to Mumbai but I cannot really comment on whether I love/hate the city because I was there just for a day. I seriously wish that I could have stayed a little longer so that I can at least see the beach and visit the gate way of India. Maybe someday.

Coming to the interesting part of the post is the Max SS 15 preview which made this extra quick trip worth the hustle. Max SS15 preview was a fun interactive event unlike many others. The excitement was also in having co-bloggers from across cities come together for the do. It was a pleasure to finally meet my fellow bloggers though we have all been virtually connected.

The event produced a very stroll in the garden kind of an environment. From cute little printed floral dresses to tropical printed shorts and skirts, pastel hued bottoms, tanks and flats. Cuts and silhouettes were simple and defined. My personal favorite was their bohemian collection. There wasn’t a single piece that I did not want to take home. And to be honest I totally dig bohemian style. More because I’m a huge fan of the Olsen twins.

The Men’s collections were no less when it came to colors and prints. The clothes weren’t restricted to just beach but yet it took a casual turn with comfortable shirting, shorts and more making the season’s grade.

Commenting on the SS15 collection, Design Head Max, Kamakshi Kaul says, “We are taking the prints to the next level, inspired by beach views, rain forest and juicy fruits. And a lot of vibrant in terms of colors”.

C S Shekar, President & buying head of Max Fashion further went on to mention, “We are bringing in the latest international trends for Indian consumers and audience”.

The month of March
Has just blown in,
To say that Spring
Will soon begin.

March roars in like a lion,
With a bluster and a slam!
And tiptoes out gently
Like a quiet little lamb.

March, Spring, SS15, Flowers, Chinese Dress, Qipao Cheongsam, Silk

L O V E ........and all that follows

It is that time of the year again, roses are in abundance at your local florists, red is the theme in the decors of every departmental stores and malls. No matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to avoid the heart shaped candies, balloons, and anything remotely heart shaped. The naught cherub, cupid aimlessly shot his arrows in the month of February thus embarking a sense of romance in most people. I would be lying if I said I didn’t care much for the highly exalted yet trivial St. Valentine’s Day, but can you blame me? I am girl in love. I guess I have declared my credentials as a closeted hopeless romantic.

My love affair with amanté’ goes a long way and Love is the word I associate with their new sleepwear line. The women’s undergarment brand makes a huge romantic gesture this season with their range of sweet color palette and soft velvety satin lingerie that is sure to ignite a feeling of passion in anyone (at least that was the case with me) and modest lengths and delicate lace wraps that proves that lingerie isn't only for the bold and flaunty but also for the conservative and demure. amanté makes sure it makes its customers feel beautiful inside and out (quite literally).

The Post-Vacation Blues

Though it’s been a while since I got back from the months-long holiday, it’s taking more effort and determination to get back on my feet and do my regular schedule. Blame it on the piercingly cold and cheerless weather or the lack of inspiration around me. Instead of getting inspired and look out for ideas and concept or go out sourcing for my online store I go about doing insignificant routine (excessive gyming, reading all about healthy diet, browsing the beauty care regime etc). Procrastination at its finest. Sigh!

However, with the lil beam of zeal that I could gather over the week, I somehow managed to put my shit together and go for the location scouting for my next project. A few test shots and trials is all I needed to get to my groove.

So hell yes I’m back!

 So this happened….

One fine day somewhere in December, me and my fine friends set out for a long ride in a small village outskirt of Dimapur, Nagaland called Razaphe. It was a great chance to see how few parts of the state is still unaffected by pollution, contamination and dirts – Green and more green. We stopped at one of my friend’s farm house where we relaxed for a while downing few cans of beer followed by a hefty lunch. We couldn’t be more content.

The headshots picture is more of a strayed plan. While we were relaxing and enjoying the surroundings, I couldn’t help myself but take few headshots using whatever materials I could find. So I used my tribal printed shawl and made it into one shouldered dress, a stole tied around my waist as a belt and collected few wild flowers and bunch them into a bouquet.

And ta-da some few decent portraits….

Lastly thanks to Roko & Na for these amazing pictures.
