Let's face it. We all need a Lady Whistledown (Bridgerton reference in case you're living under a rock) who would tell us EXACTLY what celebrities, influencers, founders, movers and shakers have in their little black book. We chatted with Deepshikha Khanna, Creative Director at Good Earth's FLOW, designer and lover of all things geometrical and earthy, and she tells us a few of her favourite things!
A Few Of Deepshikha Khanna's Favourite Things
Le Labo Ylang Ylang Parfum
I like this one not only because it smells good on the body, but also because of the brand. A small boutique brand based out of New York, you know the fragrance is fresh, and not been sitting on the shelf for ages. The fragrance also has oils which means the brand is really thinking about usage, and is mindful. But also, I really like the smell of Ylang Ylang.
En Inde Jewellery
I love all things symmetrical and since En Inde is founded by Anupama Sukh Lalvani, an architect by profession, the jewellery is all about geometry and symmetry. And that is important for me. The styles are simple yet strong. And I like things that are organic but make a statement. I specifically like the necklaces from here.
Arianna Boussard-Reifel Silver & Brass Cuffs
Another brand that is founded by a strong woman, Arianna Boussard-Reifel, and which has a commitment to the earth and socially-conscious practices, the jewellery feels like it’s quite literally sculpted to be on your body. I love the Teton Cuff and the Noh Cuff.
Kashmir Loom Pashmina Sarees
They are just exquisite. If you want to feel like a goddess draped in luxury, then this is delightful. It doesn’t get more luxurious than pashmina! The aesthetic cannot be beaten! The label also has helped to educate the entire region about how to elevate pashmina. And as you can see I am drawn to brands that are socially responsible.
Thierry Lasry Sunglasses
Love them because of the simplicity, quality, and classic. Again a family run brand which was created from a need for something, you can really feel the functionality and for me, it elevates the brand. They’re long lasting and versatile.
Victoria Slip-on Sneakers
With my lifestyle and aesthetic, you can say I am an easy non-party dresser. I have a 100 pairs of shoes, but these go with everything! With jeans, kurtas, pants, they make everything a bit sporty. They are also easy to wear. Since they’re a classic kind, it goes very well with any style - basic but classic! They’re a Spanish label, and a bit difficult to find though.
Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Lip Balm
Unbelievably tasty! You'll want to eat the whole thing. It’s like umami on my lips - sweet, salty, caramelly. I actually have one in two of my usual bags.
Forest Essentials Eye Liners
Oh, they’re lovely. They wear really beautifully, are well made, natural and don’t hurt the eye. The colours - even the brighter ones like cobalt and green - look good on Indian skin tones.
Pahadi Local Sheesham Honey
It’s the best honey in the country. We have six bottles of them as go through them so quickly! We have them as part of home remedies, on toast, in coffee, while baking…everything!
Quinoa Sourdough From Wierdough
OMG I have not tasted a yummier bread. I cannot have enough. I am on a detox diet, but I am addicted to it. It's outstanding. In fact, it’s one thing that works for the entire family. Otherwise there’s always one person in the family who doesn’t like something about the bread. It’s great to also gift people when visiting. This one is only in Mumbai though!
