Red; the sign of life, often demonized as the colour that may be “too much,’ hiding behind stereotypes like “budhi ghori laal lagaam”, mostly reserved for the desi dulhan and seldom making it to everyday wardrobe staples. But who said being “too much” can’t be a staple in your wardrobe? Gone are the days of blending in with conformity and trying to tone yourself down. Laal shokh rang hai tou kya hua? Hum bhi tou shokh hain. How about this season, you debunk cultural stigmas and normalize shades of crimson in your everyday wardrobe.
Once you’ve decided to fully embrace the shokhpun of red, here is the next step. Now we know you’re looking to walk into a gathering and turn heads. For that, laal is the way to go, my ladies! Example: ever notice how most traffic signs are in red? Wonder why? It is the most quickly received colour by the human eye
Now you stand out in the crowd but you wonder how red is associated with your personality and emotions? Well for that, think of the sun, of blood and of fire. All of these are major signs and sources of life and none other than red, in one shade or the other, is common to all of them! Our laal joray will add to your fiery, vibrant aura for when you stand up to some typical desi aunties like the non-conforming flame you are.
One more thing: red brings out the warm undertones in our beautiful gandumi rungat! So flaunt your chai coloured skin and sunset eyes as the red brings out the warmth in your skin.
Finally, red is the ultimate colour to represent all intense jazbaat such as love, passion, danger and adventure adds a sense of festivity and an added confidence that comes packaged with that. Whether you like bright reds melting into oranges, or crimsons, maroons and scarlets, whether you love minimal styles or bharay huay joray, we have a wide range of options for you!
