The Festive Designer Collection is a coming together of mellow classicism and festive glitter

It’s raining festive designer dupattas, kurtas, palazzos and saris at Kilol as edgy meets classic in a wonderful celebration of handlooms, block prints, chikan kari, Kantha, painting and more. The Festive Designer Collection has designer wear by Anuradha Ramam, Vasa and Kaara in different fabrics, canvases and impeccable cuts — a coming together of mellow classicism and festive glitter.

Impeccable stitches

Ramam’s dupattas enthral. One black cotton beauty has pretty pink and blue flowers all over amidst trellis-vine done in impeccable Kantha stitches. Ethereal Kota dupattas with touches of delicate embroidery, hand-painted Devanagri scripting, ikat and cotton dupattas, and a chess board patch-work odhni picked out in Kantha stitching cast a festive spell.

Parts of Anuradha’s collection are classic — ikat and handloom kurtas in special weaves and in a gamut of colours.

The festive touch is carried forward by Kaara, which offers delectable chikan work anarkalis, saris, and dramatic palazzos. Particularly eye-catching are net and chiffon chikan-work saris.

Vasa designers play around with handloom ikat and Kota anarkalis to dramatic effect. The Festive Designer Collection is on at 21, Khader Nawaz Khan Road (opposite Barista), Nungambakkam, till December 31. For details, call 98404-94267.
