“I was looking for a space that felt special, something that had a charm about it, and this space is just that,” says Arpita. “With a massive facade and an entryway lined with trees, this is a slice of calm in the city I love. A stone’s throw from our workshop, the flagship store is a dream come true, and finally, a place to engage with our shoppers every day.”

The store is a collection of memories in dust pink. Interior architect Ravi Vazirani built this space, balancing minimalism and a sense of luxury. The terrazzo-tiled floor reflects memories of summer with Nani, and the Indian Patent Stone facade in dust pink harks back to holidays on Mykonos island. This detail extends into cozy nooks within the store using custom mid-century modern furniture – the cane chairs, a plush velvet couch, and beautiful rugs could almost make you believe you’re in Arpita’s home discussing your wardrobe. Heirloom silverware adds to this feeling of cosy intimacy. The store uses a minimalist style to keep one’s attention on the colours bursting through the garments. The easy balance between space and design makes this retail store a serene exploration of luxury.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
