A Perfect Start to a bright, sunny day in Bangalore, India – A Single Orange Sunflower. Unintentionally, I ended up experimenting with Orange. Trying on bright colours and carrying it off in a chic way is an achievement in itself. My Experiments with Orange is a journey of fashion, food and fun, all depicted pictorially below.
Worn: Orange shirt by Vero Moda, Navy baggy trousers by Vero Moda, Victoria pendant by Accessorize, Sunglasses by Benetton, Blue Leather belt purchased in thrift market, Black shoes with bow detail by Atmosphere, Prada-inspired colour-blocked Cutch bag purchased in thrift market, Watch by Calvin Klein.
Posing coyly, feeling self-conscious in taking my own pictures, I decided to experiment more with orange through a perfect lunch date at a Chinese restaurant. The palette was brimming with orange, red, bright yellow and complementary mint colours.
A colour-blocked lunch with Orange Passion drink that matched with my Prada-inspired colour blocked clutch, a complementary Lime Mint Cooler and an appetizer of Chicken Wings served with orange colour sweet chilli sauce.
I didn’t enjoy the main course so much, but loved the hot ‘n’ cold dessert – a Fried Ice Cream topped with caramel sauce.
Lunch was succeeded by a stroll along the retail space and getting engrossed in a whole new retail experience, being totally flabbergasted by the amass of fashion products at display and aspiring to buy them someday. I happened to notice a store window with orange floral detailing and orange outfits at display.
The Paul Smith Store equally resonated the warm, orange feel trough its lighting and in-store display. I wished I could buy some exquisite British products (nostalgia – missing London).
