In our new Design Issue, we focus on how citizens function within or are inspired by the jigsaw of man-made and natural elements that make up their metropolises. Cover personality Kavi Ahuja Motlz, one half of the duo behind cult fragrance label D. S. & Durga, talks to us about how her creative spark is ignited by everything she encounters; from her Brooklyn neighbourhood of Bed-Stuy, Russian literature and Indian mythology to goth fashion and Stevie Nicks. As you flip through the pages, you will also come across tales of a studio that is revolutionising outdoor recreation for children in Indian cities, a photoseries that captures the architectural idiosyncrasies of the conflicting parts of Berlin and the queer aesthetic of a boundary-pushing Ahmedabad-based zine. Traverse the unique pathways of Indian and global design in our latest issue, now on stands.
We are India’s first and only home-grown women’s luxury lifestyle monthly with a focus on sustainability, empowerment and real stories.
