What is it about Indian Fusion that makes it just so hard to Not appreciate when it comes to fashion ?I had yet not stopped appreciating the previous Elephant inspired collection by Global Desi and they put out the Color me Happy collection. Embodying the brand motto of putting out clothes for a modern woman with a zest of creativity, this collection is the new way to go crazy. Yes, crazy is the right word. it is bold, it is free, it makes a statement for the masses as well as the fashion forwards.

The first thing that struck me is that the prints are so very fresh, for me, they are a rendition to the Bloomsbury print, UK, reminds me of what Burberry did to it in their Fall winter 2015 collection. The Color me Happy collection is like that. found the dress to be chic and vibrant. It had the youthful appeal while maintaining a certain level of modern flair. it maintains Global Desi’s staples : It was vibrant, unconventional and the bold graphic prints were blended in a stylish array of contemporary silhouettes like dresses, skirts, jumpsuits, maxi dresses, blouses, palazzo pants, and cropped tops.
The collaboration with Liva seems to be working out well as the hand feel of the fabric is beautiful. it makes you want to wear the clothes if not when you see them, then definitely when you touch them. the Colors have come out to be vivacious and it just sort of emphasizes on the theme to be frank. Makes you feel all free and airy and breathable.
Global Desi is known to come up with intriguing inspirations for their collections. i mean look at their MimoMa collection, or the London Calling one. Its one of my all time favorites. But this one is strong, it is competing with all my previous favorites. what i love about it that, it is open to interpretation, for me its the Spanish Riviera, for you, it might be Holi.. and the possibilities are endless.
PS : As promised, I’m going to be adding a small playlist along with every post i write. They are just the songs that kind of enhance the theme I would be talking about.
- Citizen Cope : Sons gonnna rise
- Lorde : Million Dollar Bills
- Eve Ft. Swizz Beatz : Tambourine
- Charli XCX : Boom Clap
- Pharell WIlliams : Happy (of course! its a cliche but hell yeah it belongs here! )
