Today’s lunch specials at this award-winning Mediterranean restaurant besides their cherry tomato tart tatins, crab cakes, smoky eggplant dip with pita, eight-hour lamb, spice dusted halibut and pomegranate sangria will be Neetu Gupta’s The Verandah Pop-Up.

Chic collections for the summer from major names in fashion with their sustainable and handcrafted garments to jewellery have been curated for this pop-up. Everything from the functional and fun to the conversation-starter as well as basics with a twist. There’s something for everyone!

Skirt The Rules

With over 25 years of experience in the fashion world, Neetu has developed an eye for the needs of her clientele and for high-quality work in the industry. She brings that know-how to the designers and labels showcased here. You can shop for garments from labels like Akaaro with its woven classics; Wh!m, which turns up the volume on wardrobe essentials and House of Sohn's spring-summer line of mixed media prints of nature photography by women travellers. Also browse through racks of Rimi Nayak, Tania Mogreacha, Urvashi Kaur, Tilla, Mrinalini, Ezra and Antar-Agni with their focus on summer fabrics, easy-to-wear vibe and flattering, interesting silhouettes.

Magpies, steel yourself! There’ll be En Inde with their handcrafted pieces that interestingly contrasts materials like jute and steel; Maya Bazaar's tribal-inspired, contemporary range and Chicory Chai’s handmade jewellery with a fundamentally rustic influence.

Mix-and-match, sip on cocktails and nibble on delicious bites nestled in the plush surroundings of the Olive Beach. Retail therapy to beat the mid-week blues? Yes, please!

Getting there: Olive Beach,16 Wood Street, Ashoknagar, May 4, 12pm to 7pm.
