Take a look at the Gucci Spring/Summer 2014 Advertising Campaign. The campaign has been shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and features models Amanda Wellsh and Elisabeth Erm, Tommaso De Benedictic and Luca Till Statscheit.

Shot on a scintillating red backdrop, these images have a super rich feel. They also capture the mood of the Gucci Spring/Summer 2014 brilliantly. My take away: luxe sportswear inspired clothing, exotic leather, fringes and prints.

On February 19thSwarovski introduced an elite audience to an exclusive event entitled Swarovski Sparkling Inspirations 2014, where beautiful, crystal-adorned objects from a variety of creative arenas were showcased. 

I find it difficult to imagine a time where we had Indian wedding attire without Swarovski. Clearly Swarovski encrusted couture creations were a highlight of this evening. Extraordinary designs were showcased from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, Gaurav Gupta, JJ Valaya, Manav Gangwani, Manish Arora, Manish Malhotra, Ravi Bajaj, Rohit Bal, Sabyasachi, Shantanu Goenka, Suneet Varma and Tarun Tahiliani.

Attended the DLF Emporio Design Awards 2013-2014, on February 18th in Delhi. Students from leading colleges sent in their entries, keeping with this year's theme, 'Reinventing The Classics.' Budding design ethusiasts presented their interpretations of the iconic creations such as the Burberry Trench, Dior Bar Jacket, Fendi Baguette and traditional saree. At the risk of sounding cliché, it was a great effort all around and nice to see such a unique platform to showcase one's talent.

Ornate head-pieces are all the rage this season. You've seen the crystal encrusted head bands, polki mang tikkasand now say hello to the Matha Patti. This jewelry piece features one central chain along other chains that flow along the hair line and is no longer meant only for brides.

I started scouting for these on-trend head-pieces and found some stunning ones from Outhouse that are available at Pernia's Pop-Up Shop. You can take your pick from those made with antique gold beads or those withSwarovski and pearls. Take a look...

Multi-designer store, Atosa, by Aparna Badlani and Azmina Rahimtoola, hosted a special preview for the latest Spring/Summer 2014 collections of designers Nishka Lulla, Vaishali S and Ravage by Raj Shroff. Also on display at the event were exotic pieces of  jewellery by Zarrin. 

“This summer is all about minimal, no fuss looks with lots of solids and bright colours, that celebrate the season. Nishka, Ravage and Zarrin go with this thread of thought while Vaishali S once again works with weaves and textures of Indian textiles albeit with a sense of lightness," says Aparna Badlani of Atosa.
