A New Year is always the best way to bring about a new version of one’s self. As artists ourselves, we have always been in awe of art around us, and for this issue, we have handpicked and curated some of the finest artists from all over the world whose work we admire. Noted art collector Shalini Passi, too, has curated the list of celebrated Indian artists to watch out for in 2020.
Our cover star for the issue is the young, fun-spirited, and unapologetic Ananya Panday. Ananya, a new-age actor, is a promising one who believes in keeping it real, be it onscreen or off the screen. The issue highlights the starlet’s inspiration and her authentic self. Looking back at our past cover stars, we have hand-picked and featured a few selected influential women that have carved a niche for themselves in the industry.
The Peacock Magazine believes in being technologically forward and for this issue we bring you our first- a 360° chat video as we drive around the city of Pune with business tycoon Yohan Poonawalla and artist Michelle Poonawalla. We got to be a part of two very special wedding ceremonies as celebrity make-up artist Daniel Bauer and Vogue’s Jewellery editor Priyanka Parkash tied the knot to their respective beaus, the former being a celebration of love across boundaries and the latter reminding us that love is what persists.
The issue presents the 50 hottest luxury brand buys within 300$, hand-picked by Falguni Peacock, that are perfect for when you run out of ideas for gifts. The issue also features fashion editorials shot in cities of New York, London, Bordeaux (France), along with a tropical-inspired Boho-chic resort shoot.
Here’s hoping the energy of new beginnings remains, and the new decade unlocks new achievements. Cheers!
