A little bit of spice makes all clothing nice. – The Scene
The hot pink door of this store brightens up otherwise drab (and slightly desolate) Grand Street, hinting at what's inside: racks of clothing in acid greens, raspberry reds and plummy purples to spruce up the gray streets of the city.
The sartorial equivalent of a Talvin Singh song: traditional Indian elements mixed with urban inspiration for an end result that's wholly different. Silky sari fabrics are worked into stylish shirts and dresses with adjustable buckles. A reversible halter top is at once sweet and sexy. Intricate cut-outs decorate a fitted blouse. Men looking to escape from boring buttondowns should check out the selection here: detailing pintucks and embroidery ensure that you'll stand out on your commute.
A NY Original (via Bombay) – Simply put: one of the most original clothing lines for women and men. Alpana Bawa makes western clothes inspired by the colors and textiles of India. There's nothing else like it. I love her men's shirts made out of bright fabrics and often decorated with rich embroidery. Tres chic!
