Spring in her steps

Mother Nature truly is incredible. Summer brings hot, languorous days pungent with sticky sweetness of mangoes, jackfruits, and lychees. On its heels comes Monsoon with heady thunderstorms and luscious rain that beats down with vengeance, igniting a spirit of romance in the heart of every rain-loving Bengali.

Such splendid madness is then succeeded by mellow days of barely there Autumn when days grow shorter and cool, crisp night air has one reminiscing about first love. Winter comes in her silver chariot, all regal and gracious, her cool, calm demeanour commanding of respect and reverence. Then comes the queen of all seasons. Spring, full of vigour and vitality is a sight for sore eyes in Bengal.

Hills, valleys and meadows are awash with fresh, new blooms that bring a renewed sense of energy everywhere. Heady with its perfume there is a palpable change of hope in the air. Bees drunk on sweet nectar buzz around madly as gentle breeze sways the luscious, blousy blooms in a spirited dance.

Is it any wonder that designers are inspired with extraordinary ideas for spring? With such beauty all around its only natural.

Celebrated designer Humaira Khan has been inspired by spring since she was a little girl, its colours, especially pink, has always been her absolute favourite.

"In my eyes, pink is the colour of fresh bloom, the fragrance of flowers, a young girl's blush. That's why this colour has been the mainstay of my Spring 2020 collection which plays around with pink in many different forms" said Humaira Khan.

A tea pink crêpe de chine with sequined roses is a stunning piece that will be perfect for a garden party or a cocktail night. Another spectacular piece is a magenta Muslin sari with subtle gold zari work that will be superb for a wedding.

Flowy long dresses and Anokhi's signature kaalidar kurtas in sweet shades of bubble-gum pink and mauve are just the outfits you need for all those wondrous teas and parties this spring. The Anokhi woman is stylish, sophisticated, understated and very comfortable in her own skin.

She is aware that her outfit only enhances her personality; it always lets her shine, according to Khan. So, this spring think pink and let your fabulous, fashionable self-glow!
