The Overview

This hot pink panels and signature leaf motif set off its vibrant collection of jersey dresses and tops in ethnic-inspired prints, reminiscent of Anna Sui's flower-child and Etro's folkloric fashions. Creative director Radhika Byrn—who was a model for Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Lanvin and Issey Miyake—takes her previous catwalk experience and turns it upside down, designing silhouettes meant to flatter a variety of figures. And it works: empire-waisted blouses, A-line shifts and frocks with built-in belts work well with both their local and expat customers. For winter, look out for unique details: a collar adorned with antique Indian brocade, a statement trench enhanced with hand-beaded pockets, and dresses embellished with bold floral embroidery. The shop's in-house seamstress can crop knee-length frocks into mini dresses, stitch up revealing keyholes for more demure customers, or level out asymmetrical hemlines—often for a minimal or no extra charge. One thing that you can't swap is the fabric, but you wouldn't want to: made in India, it's of couture quality.
