La Dolce Vita in India: Inspiration for Our Spring Summer Collection

Let us take you on a journey through the inspiration behind our 2023 spring-summer collection. 
Our Creative Director, Gayatri, found solace and inspiration in her family's vacation home in Panjim, Goa, India. It was amidst the charm of Goa's colonial architectural treasures and coastal and Bohemia-influenced interiors that inspired our latest line of handcrafted accessories. Join us as we delve into the enchanting world of baroque architecture, the allure of nature, and the tranquility that shaped our collection.

Harmony in Chaos: While many associate Goa with its famous beaches and vibrant party culture, Gayatri drew inspiration from a different aspect of this coastal paradise. The baroque architecture and beauty of Old Goa churches and the eclectically styled but warmly designed restaurants and kitschy boutiques are the centerpieces of Gayatri’s creative journey. In Goa, one is met with bold statements with Spanish tiles, grand facades, and the beauty of World Heritage sites set against the natural beauty of the tropical landscape. These are seamlessly translated into the design aesthetics of our evening bags, statement accessories, clutches, and more.  
The team has infused the vibrant colors of the tropical flora and fauna into our designs, creating motifs and vivid embroideries that bring nature's essence to life in every accessory. Its giving old-world glamor meets maximalist meets jungle-core vibes. Sounds chaotic? Sure, but it’s infused with a sense of tranquility.  Let us elaborate. 
Juxtaposing the burst of inspiring energy from the vibrant Goan surroundings was a sense of serenity that enveloped Gayatri. Being away from the hustle and bustle of the city provided a respite from the constant rat race and made space for moments to focus on life's true priorities: family, food, nature, and the art of slow living. Our collection reflects this appreciation for the simple joys of life, as each accessory radiates a sense of calm and serenity that transcends the fast-paced world.
Embracing the Slow Life: The slow life philosophy inherent in Goan culture permeates our collection's designs. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted, paying homage to the time-honored traditions of skilled artisans. By embracing the slow life ethos, we aim to create accessories that enhance your style, remind you to appreciate the present moment, and savor life's extraordinary details.
As you explore our range of handcrafted accessories, immerse yourself in the enchanting world that inspired each creation. Let the vibrant colors, intricate embroideries, and creative chaos aesthetic transport you to a place where time slows down and life's true priorities shine.
