Locked in our urban sanctuaries for a good part of last year, we have come to realize how beautiful and exhilarating the great outdoors are! Imagine a simple picnic in the park; an afternoon siesta spent lazing on the grass, the sun soaking the body, the fragrance of jasmine teasing the nostrils and thoughts drifting and floating in languor! As the new season arrives, we encourage you to indulge in one’s own sweet time and wish that the vacant hours be filled with essence and ‘suchness’ in our versatile floral print dresses! As the soft handcrafted pieces subtly caress your skin as if it were the wind, so descends a vision so everyday and yet so idyllic when you can’t help saying – ‘This is it!’
Our Spring 2021 collection is an ode to spring blossoms and bucolic living. It is inspired by children’s book illustrator and master gardener, Tasha Tudor, who also had a fondness for living her everyday life as it were in a bygone century. Her sprawling garden was a spirited display of spontaneity, abundance and an extraordinary love for flowers, fruits and plants bursting amidst the pastures. Tasha’s Garden embodies the essence of alfresco, threaded thoughtfully into each piece to harmonize into flowy summer dresses to give you an effortless and elegant look. The airy, flowy ankle-grazing All My Days Maxi Dress is perfect for a summery picnic day to relish the wonders of Mother Nature and truly savour it, just like Tasha!
These floaty, dreamy and whimsical pieces pay homage to nature and burst with wildflowers, meadows and flowering shrubs. They are carefully handblock printed on natural handloom fabrics like cottons, chanderis and cotton silks. The glorious pastures and overflowing meadows of Tasha’s Garden are carefully converted from our in-house illustrations to myriad blocks of up to eighteen colors and skillfully crafted into handblock floral print dresses. The spring floral prints reflect the sun and the abundant grazing flora in nature bursting into a kaleidoscope of joy!
The hand embroidered hems inspired by trails of spring flowers add fun to our daytime summer dresses, falling freely and bubbling with teaseful volumes. The collection showcases a beautiful collage of prairie flora hand printed in vibrant colors and romanticizing the valleys in the depths of Dame Nature! The floral print dresses are a beautiful medley of sheer and opaque textiles with ditzy details such as the hand embroidered French knots subtly flirting with the fabrics. The modern and relaxed silhouettes fall gracefully over the shoulders with vintage elements for a nostalgic vibe.
Tasha’s Garden is a celebration of Indian craftsmanship and artistry. Each piece has a story to tell and hidden in its delicate folds are tales of the meticulous craft of handloom weaving, the dramatic genius of hand block printing and the painstaking finesse of hand embroidery. It comes in playful shades of beige, ivory, lavender, blue and yellow! Swirling shapes, hand pleating, bow ties, vintage inspired lace, French knots, sequins and threadwork lend it a poetic and dainty quality.
When you don pieces from Tasha’s Garden, we aspire to teleport you to a balmy hill on a breezy afternoon as the lightweight fabrics brush against your skin and the flowy silhouettes make you feel light as a sparrow. Pick the Handwoven Bay Tree Scarf with delicate lace or the Laguna Co-Ord with graceful smocking details for an elevated brunch look. Ideal to step out yet again is the soft-hued Siringo Smock Dress that is roomy enough for a sunny day, yet fitted just right for a snug and flattering look.
