LOVE IS IN THE AIR THIS WEEK

A week full of 'hectivity'! A word coined specifically to articulate the madness and rush of life :-) I feel too.. another rush! Spring is almost in the air.. as is love! Personally I do so enjoy February -- even though there is much going on below the 'superficial' (a word that The Reluctant Prince in his first TV interview has given new meaning and weightage to!). layers of romance and passion. For where there is love there surely will be loss! In a sense feeling pain and longing are as intrinsic to love as is all of the Valentine package.

So whilst Team 'Anu PD' has been busy packing off the "RED-Love Is In the Air 2014" capsule collection off to the stores for retail and doing up the studio at Hauz Khas Village for the love-month I am mulling over the yin-yang nature of love and loss. A dear friend lost her spouse this morning. Another is mourning the loss of a dear pet and yet another yearns for lost love. And then there are those who await love -- and never mind the vagaries! A newspaper article this morning spoke of every type of love (including same-sex love.. people!) being part of universal love. Ergo and love for divinity.. nature and mankind. We stumble and yearn.. ache and fall.. marvel and smile.. giggle and laugh all for love!

"Our love is alive and so we begin
Foolishly laying our hearts on the table
We're stumblin' in!
Our love is a flame burn in' within
Now n then fire-lights will catch us
We're stumblin' in!"
Thank you Suzy Quatro!

For you all then here are some pics of the love-buzz at the headquarters of Anu PD and some of the color and mood inspirations for the range.. the tones of red from a peach-going-on-crimson rose and the lovely coppers of Hugo the Labrador and beige-gold of the little baby giraffe and the way the setting sun lights up my red sari from an earlier collection. It's a warm and fuzzy feel. It is! And.. it's a beautiful world! For now.. boys and girls.. it's birds n roses and strawberries n chocolates everywhere--after all Love Is in The Air.

It's nice to see someone excited about creating capsule collections instead of jaded designers just doing a seasonal collection. Way to go!
