We find our muse in the rich heritage of our country, in the fascinating architecture and sometimes in the diverse crafts of our country. This time, what allured our designers was the art of Kalamkari.
‘Qalam’ has been taken from a Persian word that signifies pen and ‘kari’ means craftsmanship and this timeless art has an impeccable legacy attached to it which can be dated back to centuries. Kalamkari is a craft where the craftsman draws and paints with a pen using natural dyes on a cotton fabric. This style has a religious connotation and is found in ancient temples and mythological classicals like Ramayana and Mahabharat. We have time travelled to the heart of this timeless craft, to bring you a collection of hand enamelled jewelry in vivid colours and charming motifs. Motifs like peacock, fish, paisley, andelephants have been used in abstract manner and have been filled with bright colors such as Green, Yellow, Blue and Orange to give the fresh spring-summer vibes.
We’ve tried to add a contemporary touch to the collection to help you stay intact with the latest fashion trends this summer.
Take a look-
The fashion girls can’t seem to get over the floral trend. Two years and counting.. this trend doesn’t show any sign of going in 2017 as well.
Crafted from brass and silver plating, tiny floral motifs, dainty green and orange beads and colourful enamel come together to tell a lovely story in the form of these floral drop earrings.
The paisley motif is a classic and not just a passing trend. Usually found in saris and kurtas, the paisley love has now evolved to jewelry as well. This paisley ring incorporated with artistic details is handcrafted and hand-painted and is nothing but a masterpiece.
The 90’s Resurgence- Chokers
The 90’s trend made its comeback last year and looks like it’s here to stay. Vintage charm and contemporary edginess, the choker necklace is embellished with floral motifs, dainty ghungroos and is perfect to team up with an off-shoulder top.
Let’s save the animals and flaunt our love for them by wearing animal motif jewelry. Each piece of this collection is a work of art, a prelude to an unforgettable story.
While traditional attire comes as a natural choice for this collection, get experimental this summer. Flowing dresses in gossamer textiles, floral prints and pastel colored separates can be teamed up with the bright jewelry of Kalamkari to break the monotony. Each piece of the collection makes a statement and is thus versatile. Wear it with a linen shirt or a cotton kurta, a shift dress or a linen saree. It looks just as spectacular and unique.
