You know the fragrance that is in the air just after the first rain of the season hits the mud? That earthy, organic almost hypnotizing fragrance that makes you drift away into another world oblivious of any complication? It is a spellbinding scent that is hopeful, calming and absolutely comforting.
Let’s face it. 2016 has been a tough year on all of us. When we marched towards the left, it came towards us from the right, and when we treaded towards the right, it came at us from the left. When we ducked for cover, it dropped some bombshell from the sky! The atmosphere has been chaotic and how. Nonetheless, we remain grounded, hopeful for the year that is to come. The Pantone Institute of Color resonates with the same spirit with its newest color of the year – Greenery. A color that denotes hope, growth and peace after what can only be described as a whirlwind of the year. It represents revitalization, rejuvenation and an oxygenation from the toxic garb that enshrouded this year.
Like the color and much like petrichor – the New Year gives us hope. Of a new time, an easy time. We went back to basics. To comfort, to our roots and to a natural way. We went back with Vraj Bhoomi. The Earthy color palette, organic fabrics and traditional designs took us back to our roots quite literally, back to the natural route. The use of tradition Indian textiles, the authenticity of the designs and its expressions and especially its handcrafted quality, created by skilled artisans makes us love it even more. All the while being comfortable, chic and stylish for the modern Indian woman. This twist of style with its urbane influences is the perfect accomplice to oxidized silver jewelry, which accentuates the look. Alternately, you can create many western looks with it as well, either as separates or with each garment on their own.
Whichever route you take, it’s time to go back. To a natural way of life, to an uncontaminated way of life. A new year means a new chance, a new take. It’s yours to have and is ripe for the taking. Make the most of it and make 2017 YOUR year.From What Wear How,
A Very Happy New Year!
