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.

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.

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).
