Kaeros x Pankaj & Nidhi
Brainchild of Kritika Aggarwal and Shreeda Chakraborty, Kaeros is a new-age leather accessory brand that has shot up the Indian fashion scene fairly quickly since its 2018 launch. Presenting at FDCI’s India Fashion Week, they tied up with globally acclaimed fashion label Pankaj & Nidhi for their AW19 collection. Their creations were inspired from the work of the Dutch artist Jan Davidz de Heem’s still life, Flowers in a Glass Vase, featuring cascades from florals to geometric patterns put together as texturised details.
Jaipur Watch Company
Each watch of Jaipur Watch Company’s Peacock Watch collection is embedded with a real peacock feather in its dial. The collection amalgamates the essence of nature, the beauty of this majestic bird and a symbol of India as a country. With a 42 mm dial diameter, a stainless steel case, Japanese quartz movement with sapphire crystal, and a leather strap, this water-resistant watch has a bezel studded with Swarovski crystals. It is priced Rs 35,000 and is available on Jaipurwatches.com.
The new age of Indian bridal couture is here, heralded by designer Amit Aggarwal who engineers innovative designs inspired by nature while combining our country’s rich textile heritage and his commitment to environmental sustainability. His collection ‘Lumen’ brings to light the wonderful architecture of human and plant anatomy, celebrating that unique light that illuminates us all. A range of three-dimensional hand embroideries in organic angular forms and motifs gave the textiles a unique visual and tactile quality.
