ARANYA : A Cool Haven for Hot Summers
The Malabar Coast, as the stretch, is also called, immediately evokes images of the deep sea on the one side and the Western Ghats covered with lush green forests on the other. Covering 525 miles or 845 km, the Malabar Coast refers to the western coast from Konkan to Cape Comorin at the tip of the subcontinent.
Cool hills with cascading waterfalls, thick canopied jungles, blooming plants home to several birds and animals, and the promise of a new life beckons the summer-weary travelers with their pleasant climate every year. A favorite haunt apart from having a rich eco-diversity, the Western Ghats are also one of the four watersheds of India, with several major rivers originating from these hills. Heavy rains, tropical wet evergreen forests, montane grasslands rich in medicinal plants and a variety of grains, fruit, and aromatic spices also mark this lush green landscape.
Covered in mist and mystery, the Western Ghats reveal much but hide much more. AMPM’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection – ARANYA, is inspired by the myriad moods of nature’s lush abundance, its air of serenity, and its inviting sensuousness. Smart cuts designs that suit any purpose in breezy materials with ethereal hues and delicate motifs reflecting the rich flora and fauna of the region mark the Aranya collection to make the right style statement.
Designers Ankur and Priyanka Modi capture the subtle harmony of the life-giving forests, the buzzing of the bees, the chirping of the birds, the delicacy of the fawns and the dignity of the tigers in their Spring-Summer 2018 collection with Aranya. Stylish, modern, cool and comfortable, the Aranya is a rich addition to the wardrobe this summer.
