It feels like yesterday, when I started jotting down my quirky, traditional and contemporary finds. First year was the most exciting as I visited many to write only about a few and yet had the fire in my belly to visit someone each day. Looking around for creativity in any form gave me a high, specially if it wasn’t written about earlier. From this year, I am taking on a loftier mission of mapping the Indian sub-continent with more oeuvre.

Statement Jackets ~ Fall/ Winter 2015 Top Trends

aren’t winters incomplete without a trendy trench jacket or just a snug stylish puffer jacket?

whatever it is the trend is never going to leave the runway and this season was an epitome of colourful bright jackets in cotton, silk and wool!

we loved so many pieces and its tough to put them all together here in one blog :)

our favorite collection is dries van noten’s beautiful, fairytale like outfits, worn with cool nonchalance… the fabrics are rich and teamed with casual pants and culottes.












when choosing a statement pieces its quite important to pair it with subtle and classy pieces unless you are planning to go boho or punk!

and if you think the trend for these lovely outerwear will wear out next season, you are in for a surprise! we found some lovely brocade and silk jackets overlapping the next season too :)

here are few images from Spring Summer 2016 RTW –

:) come back for more trend updates..


Fall/Winter 2015-16, Trend – B&W

and i don’t think black & white trend ever left the runway! every season we have had one designer or the other sticking to b&w theme on the runway, but this time it was humongous!!!

from chic to gothic, the combination was used liberally by all designers on the runway..

Chanel’s Fall/ Winter 2016 B&W collection

 Bottega Veneta 00010h_426x639

our takeaway from the runway would be –

  1. go for b&w look, after all its the easiest trend to follow! don’t forget to add a dash of color with accessories or a color block scarf or a jacket.


  1. match your bag or accessories, that would be going overboard
  2. mix too many patterns if you are not an expert in mixing stripes with checks or prints


  • don’t forget to have fun with this seasons top trends!

And it is to these female artisans as to the awe inspiring women across the globe, we at kinche dedicate our Vintage Kantha Jacket Collection.

Our jackets are up cycled and made of vintage fabric stitched together for years.. kinche believes in sustainable and ethical design and we are proud to present it in a beautiful way through our collection!

We love the contrast between structured and feminine in this collection: using unique swatches of brightly patterned vintage kantha fabrics, kinche has created one-of-a-kind, jackets that elegantly toe the line between modern and boho.

Since each jacket is made of vintage and unique handcrafted material, small blemishes add to the charm of each piece.

Kantha Kraze :)

a perfect example of old world mixed with new.. Kantha is a traditional type of embroidery used to preserve and re-use vintage cotton saris, in small ethnic communities in Bengal, India.

kantha throws are original and one-of-a-kind pieces using vintage cotton fabrics in beautiful colors. Vintage saris are stitched together with tiny running stitches to form a slight delicate quilted effect. These original pieces are perfect for the end of your bed or draped on your couch, for that sophisticated elegance, or to curl under. The stitches also add aesthetic value to the throws.

Due to its age, each piece is delicate and the colors are mellowed due to years of washing.

Women Work Wear Handbags ~ one is not enough! ;)

Working women handbags, handbags for work, professional handbags, workwear india,

Be a working woman or a home maker, when it comes to shoes and bags, one ain’t enough! every occasion requires a different bag, clutches for partying, hobos/ big bags for shopping, totes for work and satchels for anytime :)

if your ensemble defines you, then your accessories accentuates your ensemble! choose one what you like and what you can carry comfortably! do not confuse it with whats in fashion and why you should flaunt it. keep a fair grip on the occasion and utility.

here are few suggestions from kinche, see it, like it and make it yours-

Wear to Work Bag – 

simple, stylish yet professional looking bags are the best. you do not want too much bling to attract unnecessary attention yet it shouldn’t be blah either!

keep quality in mind, always! a good leather bag will last you longer and will age well without causing you an unwanted embarrassment of skin peeling (in PVC bags) or fixtures coming out.

here are some finds for you – read on –

Women Night Wear

Put your feet up with a relaxing cup of green tea and unwind the day’s work sitting comfortably in our cotton Pajams! Yup, they were designed keeping comfort in mind as a second choice ;)

First choice, believe it or not was to get my hands on a “pretty” pajama as I got tired with the choices available in the market! Some were pretty but bad in quality and if everything looked perfect the fit was pathetic!

The worst was lounging around in those at my friends place, hence started the quest for creating not only pretty pajamas but pajamas I can comfortabley strut around in!
(yeah I do not jump into a shower straight after waking up…a cup of coffee and newspaper is more important for me in the morning)

Also here is an interesting history of pajamas i found online which I thought would be fun to share with you guys!

Each comme l’oiseau bag is realized in Milan, by Italian artisans, using Tuscan vegetable-tanned leather and many different fine Italian fabrics.

ilariamai and comme l’oiseau handbags collection were born in Milan, in 2010. The name is inspired by a poem of Paul Valéry: Il faut etre léger comme l’oiseau, et non comme la plume.

The comme l’oiseau handbag was created from the desire for a pure and versatile design, rich in possibilities of form and style, that accentuates above all the beauty of the materials: a hard Tuscan leather structure surrounds a soft reversible pouch, made of fine italian fabrics of different styles and types.

Timeless Fashion ~ Vintage Wear Trend 2012

Look Inside, Look Outside. And try to balance! Yup, it is tough to find things you love while trying to please everyone.

In a similar vien , Vintage Fashion is not everybody’s cup of tea!

There are plenty of reasons to appreciate Vintage clothing. For me it’s the quality, the timeless appeal, the chance to look different, to own a one of a kind piece & to top it all, a chance to tastefully recycle!

When it comes to Vintage, Two of my favorite styles are 1920’s Flapper & 1950’s Wiggle Dresses! I think the dresses or Apparel from this era epitomize feminine style.

And, since these are sensibilities from an era gone by –  flaunt shamelessly, after knowing what not to flaunt.

The Do’s & Dont’s of Vintage Style Dressing : Like any other trend or way of dressing,  “less is more” here as well. Don’t go overboard trying to mimic the era completely.  My advice will be to make it your own and merge the old with the new. Choose wisely according to your body type & accessorize accordingly.

When buying Vintage clothing make sure you know the actual measurements – yours and the apparel. Don’t go just by the suggested sizes by the seller.

Plus Size Dressing – Tips & Tricks!

This is not not your regular post on what to wear for plus sizes, but how to wear it. India has plenty of choices for plus size women or women with curves (as i like to say it).

Flaunt your curves in the right way and do not get narrowed down by the choices available in market in Apparel.

First thing First – Be proud of yourself and who you are! Take pride in dressing up and always feel good about your choices!

Here are some Tips for women in India and some observations made –


Indian wear is the most generous and forgiving form of dressing and it actually accentuates your curves if chosen wisely –

1) When it comes to saris, always try and go for small prints, solid color with least of embroideries and works! Try experimenting with different shapes of blouses  – for example deeper necks and longer sleeves, preferably 3/4 length as it can make your upper arms look slimmer.

– always choose good quality fabric and natural fabrics, like silk, cotton, chiffon or georgettes.

Saree for Plus size Women
Saree for Plus size Women

a) Tie your sari, slightly above the belly button. Do not tie a sari on your waist as it can make your middle look bigger.

b) Keep the colors simple (1 or 2) and avoid big or complicated prints. You can definitely choose bold colors though!

c) Accessorizing – Keep it minimum and if dressing for a wedding wear necklaces away from your face. If you are a plus size woman avoid wearing chokers.

Keep it to one bracelet or thin bangles while choosing jewelry for hand.

Go for longer earings instead of big studs.

Remember less color, less fussy prints and less jewelry gives a feeling of lightness.

To be continued for western wear and suits for plus size women – watch the space!

Look Good Feel Good!

Fall Winter 2011 Top Trend – Lace trend

From flashy to trendy, from downright gothic to extremely feminine, from tarty to sophisticated, Fall Winter 2011 runway was full of lace in all forms and styles.

Lace apparel can be very feminine or can be very revealing. Choose what you like carefully as their is a pretty thin line between classy and tartish when it comes to Lace.

Here are some pieces chosen from various retailers in India, which I think are pretty clean and would definately enhance your wardrobe.

Not any easy, fabric to embrace, so choose wisely when choosing an outfit or when going for bespoke clothing in Lace.

I personally think a Lace Sari would be a good addition to your wardrobe for current season. Choose a good quality as can make you look v frumpy, if made of cheaper quality.

Tip – Don’t let the difference between the length of your  hemlines be drastically different.

I have always been fascinated with vintage prints, be it art deco style or old botanical lithographs or Japanese block prints. I so waned to decorate with them when they were in plenty around me. Now I hv to literally import them & I have got them for you all too!

Botanical art or Vintage prints are also excellent for accent walls, where if the colors are  bright there is no problem with that clashing with the Art.

In fact the muted tones and contrast of Vintage prints accentuates your wall.

Here are some of the vintage prints/lithographs available online in India at >>> kinche boutique.

Mens Spring Summer Dressing Style 2011!

Mens Spring Summer Style 2011

Sexy, Sauve and Cool: these are the words which come to my mind when I see men dressed in Linens. What can do more justice to Indian summers than linen clothing in cream, grey or beige color?

A new color pretty popular in linen for this summer is N Blue, replacing the black for summer 2011.

Check out Zara’s summer collection for latest summer wear for 2011.

Look smart and yet casual without too much color! Urban in nature the Zara 2011 collection for men is stylish and at par with current trends in Fashion for Men.

Tips for Summer Dressing for Men :

When dressing up in neutrals make sure the accessories are in brown or crier color, for example wear the white linen pants with brown shoes & beige/ brown belt.

The hats, any style should be in neutral color too. Accessories like bags would look ideal in tan color. 

Do not go for tight-fitting clothes when choosing smart casual wear. The slouchy, carefree look is back in style and would only look good if the fit is not too tight.

The linen pants come in two styles – drawstring and belted. Choose drawstring pants to get a classy, comfy look. Also linen pants matched with a natural fibre shirt and a linen jacket would look ideal for a summer wedding or a beach wedding. 

Get leather moccasins or leather sandals to finish the look.

Rule of the thumb : colored linen shirts go with white, gray or beige linen pants; white linen shirts go with colored, gray or beige linen pants.
