FROM THE EDIT ROOM

CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT December and January are our favourite months of the year. December brings the Christmas glory with much celebration and the vibe is definitely infectious. From the nip in the air to the delicious bakes, there is little we can wish for whereas January gives the motivation to change and evolve. From changes in our lifestyle habits to work, to be positive and to consume less sugar, each of us have our lists. About how many of us stick to the resolutions is a different story altogether.

ON COVER

However, 2017 has seen changes in people regarding the classic idea of ageing and lifestyle in general. People are no longer okay with growing comfortably old. They want to live a youthful, modern life, are open to new ideas and are interested in new technologies. They are in better shape, cooler and more cosmopolitan. Their clothes are more stylish, relaxed and ageless. And we are glad to be right in the midst of all this, capturing the changes and the brands that are bringing the change.

We have taken immense joy in bringing the latest feed on the launches and the most trending products currently in the market. We will continue to do so with our digital platforms.
