ESSENZA looked far over seas this season and came to India for inspiration. They immediately fell for the classic madras coloured check, but gave it an elegant makeover. The checks did not get the usual bright colours, but instead quiet, soft earth tones. The result: checks with a stylish, casual look over an equally elegant and warm almond shade. Prefer quiet elegance? Then turn the duvet cover over to find just the almond colour. The duvet cover is made from cotton satin, which feels wonderfully soft and smooth and has a subtle shine.
