Shop Czarina boutique is back with its ‘Kota Utsav’

Summer’s here and it’s just the right time to drape yourself in some cool cottons. For some stylish light-weight weaves that help deal with the heat, head to Czarina at Catholic Centre, General Hospital Junction, which is holding its popular ‘Kota Utsav’.

Says Sheila James, proprietor of Czarina: “For the past several years now, around this time when the heat begins to set in, I get many requests for light-weight saris. That’s how I struck upon the idea of showcasing a range of fine Kotas. This is now the fourth edition of the ‘Kota Utsav’. What’s unique about Kota saris is that they are light, airy and easily wearable, besides being suitable for all manner of occasions.”

The Kotas, which have been sourced from across the country, come in three varieties – cotton, super net and silk. Each sari has been individually designed and are available in all manner of styles, from those with brocade borders to those embellished with mirror work and appliqué designs.

Funky colours are hep and happening this season. “Everybody, from the young to the old, seems to want hot pinks, chilli reds, brilliant oranges, sunny yellows, bright purples and blues… We have a lot of saris in these vivid colours. Some saris have pastel tones but with highlights in bright colours,” says Sheila.

This time, says Sheila, the store also has a huge collection of stylish Kotas ideal for casual and/or office wear. All these saris are priced between Rs. 900 and Rs. 1,500. Most of the saris come with attached blouses.

Those looking to add a whimsical touch can also opt to team the saris with a wide variety of blouses. They can choose from trendy semi-stitched blouses or ready-made blouses (sizes 34, 36, 38) or design their own from fabrics of many hues.

‘Kota Utsav’ is on till March 15. Contact: 2573798
