Beat the heat in pristine whites and be one step ahead with quirky details


Clever details add charm and an element of surprise to clothes. Cheeky keyholes, eccentric necklines, contrast panels, prominent bust inserts and inverted hemlines treat design with a sense of humour. Floppy collars, fabric reverses and uneven pleats play with geometry in drape. Staple pins, safety pins and a logo resembling a tape measure make you smile with their delightfully odd appeal. Mock and smart layering, and deceptive printing create illusions, urging you to take a closer look. This is intelligent dressing for adventurous fashion intellectuals.


Embrace puritanical colour therapy. White spells comfort and class in various avatars. Pretty resort comprises broderie and cutwork dresses. Crisp sharpness is acquired with an organza trench, a pin-tucked shirt or a tailored trouser. Go glam in a palazzo jumpsuit or a feathered cocktail sari. Be edgy in a structured sporty zip-up jacket. Flaunt your desi roots in churidars, kurtas and trapeze angarkhas. Accessorise appropriately, with cutwork handbags, crinkled scarves, enamel sunglasses and clear jewellery.
