First week of November and I’m all excited to bring to you the first winter post I’ve been working on in collaboration with Lifestyle International. Like you know, I was invited by them few days ago to be a part of their Style Circle event. The event celebrated the 2015 Autumn Winter collection by lifestyle’s own labels - Code by lifestyle, Fame Forever, Ginger, Paprika, Bossini, Melange and Kappa as well as other retail brands.
Their collection this year is an interesting assortment of some major trends that were seen on the runway with striking patterns and silhouettes for the season. The Ikat prints, the Denims, the Aztec- Bohemian and the Dark Florals are the major highlights of their collection. While the Ikat prints have been incorporated in the Indianwear collection in a way to give it an interesting modern feel, the denim collection is inspired by the 50s American workwear with lighter fabric and prints. The Aztec – Bohemian collection includes a lot of lace, fringe and tie and dyes with a dreamy, thoughtful take on country looks. Coming to the Dark Florals, it is one of the biggest trends showcased on the runway by designers Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Valentino this Fall. Dark base and contrasting pretty blooms are the key notes of this collection. One of my personal favorites, you can see me sporting this trend here.
When asked to pick up something for myself from their collection, I picked this blue dress from Code by lifestyle for its color and comfortable fabric which is apt for the season and completed the look by layering two gold-toned necklaces. Code by lifestyle is their in-house endorsed by actors Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar. The collection includes fitted jackets, skirts, printed/ embellished tops and dresses meant for everyday casual wear as well formal wear. The brand is for anyone who loves simplicity, clean cuts, comfort, and interesting colors. It includes lot of basics that can be mixed and matched with what you already have, giving you the freedom to go ahead and create your own code. Do check out the collection here. I'm sure you'll love it.
