Green with Envy

I wanted to do a post on colours since its been a while and of course, we're sort of known for our bright and eye catching palette.

Green is one of my favourite colours and the great thing about it is it works for every season, just change the tone from pastel for summer to forest or christmas green for autumn/winter.
It's also a colour that works well on all skin types but generally better on brunettes. The colour creates a beautiful backdrop for dark hair and brings out the colour of your eyes.
So I complied somethings that are eye catching, fun, flirty and feminine to suit your personal taste.
My favourite skirt has to be the Pencil skirt with detachable train, it's versatility is one reason why i find it appealing. Its form fitting shape makes it great for all sizes and its train is perfect if you're not 100% confident.
Close for 2nd place is our high waist Green Brocade Skirt, that can be worn with some high top kicks or classic ballet flats or heels. Kanch sourced a gorgeous fabric that is a silk brocade if you love subtle detail. Its also a great palette for you to build on with accessories, jewellery or some fun extravagant heels.

These are a pair of my favourite earrings from our gold collection adorned with gorgeous ombre green agate stones. One of our most extravagant pieces for a more out there personality. 

If you're a more of a classic gal, these are a perfect fit for you. Not extravagant but has the right amount of glamour and elegance. Remember stay true to your style! 

Love, Petra

Atma Kids Pieces!

Contact me at for wholesale prices for these fun kiddie bracelets!


Today, Kanch brought an interesting article about the Hamsa Hand symbol that we've been using for our Atma bracelets and heres what it said..

"The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet symbolising the hand of God. It is believed to bring its owner happiness, health and good fortune. Although the Hamsa Hand has been symbolic in Islam and Judaism for centuries, archeological evidences from the West Asia shoe that the Hamsa pre-dates these religions and perhaps, originated with the Pheoenicians and was used as a protective symbol for an ancient fetility goddess. In Islam, Hamsa is known as the Hand of Fatuma, Prophet Muhammad's daughter Fatima Zahra, said to be an epitome of faith and tolerance. In Jewish tradition, the Hamsa hand is believed to help banish negative energy and bless its owners with luck and good fortune. Jews believe that Hamsa symbolises the hand of Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron. Kabbalists see the five fingers of the Hamsa hand as representing the five books of the Torah. In the Christian tradition, the symbol is associated with the hand of the Virgin Mary and it's said to protect pregnant women from malicious gazes and ensures a healthy pregnancy. "

Jewellery Stylin'

Last Friday, I attended the Viss Fashion Friday @ Mella in Central and the one thing that was apparent was the obscene amount of chunky jewellery that night!

As of late a lot of brands are coming out with chunky gemstone pieces that are very regal looking. I remember when I saw a Dolce and Gabbana runway show a while back with some gorgeous chunky, floral, gem covered earrings, headbands and necklaces to match. Needless to say I fell in love with the look. The entire styling that D&G did was so classy, elegant, feminine but powerful and endearing.

I think the recent collections D&G have done in regards to jewellery have been very whimsical and housewife-esque but with a holiday feel. Rarely do you see such accessories in a work environment  which calls for a more subtle less distracting look, however if you're on holiday or you're out and about don't be scared to bling it up! The bigger the better and the brighter the better is the trend for jewellery this year! Try different shapes, sizes, embellishments and colours that you don't usually go for or if you're on the subtle side, go for a more classic gemstone bling look.

Email me at for prices or information! 

These are just a few of my favourite chunky pieces designed by Kanch from various collections.
Kanch loves colour so it wouldn't be a Kanchan Couture collection without some fun colours and beautiful natural stones all sourced by Kanch herself.
We like using masha jade beads because of their vibrant colours and how long lasting they are. Paired with natural stones such as lemon quarts and amethyst, which also have healing powers if you're into that sort of quality.
We have different sizes of stones to match each personality, whether you're into a larger heavier necklace which is a standout/conversation piece or a more subtle one with smaller stones and beads if you don't want to go over the top or cause a distraction at your meeting or at work!

We want to wish you all a Happy Chinese New Year and we hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Usually before the new year, traditions such as a fresh hair cut and clothes represent a fresh start and a great way to ring in the new year, so chop and shop till you drop!!

Have some fun this season!
Love, Petra & Kanch
