BB: What are the kinds of quirky prints you suggest one should have in their wardrobe?

Rixi: Prints should make you feel happy and comfortable. Vintage, botanical, comic and abstract prints work well for all. Don’t follow fashion trends blindly as it is all about comfort and individual style.

BB: Please suggest prints as per body type.

Rixi: Those who wear larger sizes should go for prints in a smaller portion or on a small part of their ensemble. Opt for separates in solid colours and try prints in either of your pieces. If you like to wear head-to-toe prints, then opt for dresses and jumpsuits in smaller prints and subtle colours.

If it is too loud a print, then keep your other elements and accessories simple, for example, a quirky print jacket should be teamed with basic solid colours and muted accessories. Don't mix too many prints, usually subtle pastel prints work well together as a mix-and-match option. If you are not too comfortable with prints in your garments, work with them in your accessories like bags, scarves, shoes.

BB: What defines Quirk Box’s Autumn Winter 2014 collection?

Rixi: The collection is called ‘Bombay Balloons’. It is a unique representation of the eccentric and surreal through hand illustrated original artworks conceptualised and designed in-house. Inspired by Mumbai, its vintage charm, the glamour of its ostentatious cinema, the theatrical order in its chaos, Bombay Balloons is a whimsical surreal rendition of Mumbai's popular culture iconography.

BB: How can brides wear quirky prints?

Rixi: Quirky prints work well for a fun mehendi, a summer brunch, or a whimsical sangeet. A quirky print crop top choli with a solid sequinned sari or printed palazzos with an embroidered long jacket can look awesome. A printed patiala salwar with a short embroidered kurta and a sequinned net duppata would make for the perfect quirky mehendi ensemble.
