The inaugural issue of First Look by Purple Style Labs celebrates the spirit of rejuvenation in a post-pandemic world. A niche and integrated lifestyle, couture and travel magazine, First Look marks new beginnings in the fashion and luxury space with a fresh lease of stories. As we tide over the disruptions caused by the pandemic, First Look promises to be a trusted companion and confidante for the new-age fashion consumer who is navigating both the retail and digital landscape of fashion. In sync with that, the master of couture, Manish Malhotra and millennial trailblazer and actor Ananya Panday create an array of India-inspired looks complete with a Gen-Z vibe at The Leela Palace, Udaipur.
Our theme of this is Muse India — we are hopeful about a fashion and travel rebound — as we delve into handwoven saris screaming the modern Indian identity, textiles that tell stories in an enriching interview with the founder of Raw Mango, Sanjay Garg, a feature on the new Wendell Rodricks store in Mumbai and more. Do not miss our fashion shoot that juxtaposes the country’s top 16 couturiers’ creations against Kashmir’s enchanting backdrops. From insights into the modern mangalsutra, to outdoor inspiration for your next getaway, there’s a lot to create new memories and beyond.
