The New Year is here, as the harbinger of prosperity, hope and eternal beauty. Your wardrobe could do with a bit of brightening up as we step into a dazzling 2023.
Fresh off our looms, here are some of our striking designs and trendsetting picks that are sure to make heads turn this year.
Whether you are hitting that glamorous South Indian wedding decked in your favourite gold finery or breaking tradition at the office party - a bold silk saree is what you need.
We are in love with this multi-coloured Spectra Silk Saree, how about you? Tye and Dye splashes of colour trail the saree with over 7 shades trespassing this 6 yards of grace!
Styling tip Show off the bold colour with an open pallu. Pair it with a plain blouse with full sleeves and a conservative neckline. Wear chunky designer jewelry with a sleek hair bun to complete the look.
If distinctive is what you are looking for, may we recommend our unique Seeker collection. We rewrote every silk motif that has been on display through the years, with inspirations from the world over. Our eclectic patterns span Spanish tile art, Mandalas, Victorian furniture, exotic Annam damask and exclusively chosen motifs that are woven beautifully into a fine silk palette.
Styling tip Our unique patterns woven across the sarees make it easy and effortless to style. Contrast blouse is where you can score with the Seeker. Elevate your sarees with a statement blouse, preferably in jacquard with a thin piping.
For an effortless look, go for flowy unconventional drapes. The trick to showing off these sarees is to use as few pins as possible.
If you don't own a pastel silk saree, this is the year to be investing in one. A timeless pick for evening weddings, receptions by night and breezy beach events, a pastel saree is a cut above the rest.
Styling tip Style these beauties with dainty delicate diamonds, or take the regal route and throw on some pearls and instantly transform into a queen. Psst… you can also take a leaf off the books of jaipuri maharanis and bring out those emerald chokers to pair with pastel silks.
Saving your red only for the wedding? Well, think again! Nothing packs the punch as the scarlet hue, especially when it comes to silk sarees. Also, red has so many beautiful variants from the much loved chilli red, soft pink-hued crimson or the deep Valentino red.
Styling tip If you're wearing red to a wedding, the silent rule is to steer clear of temple jewellery as you don't want to outshine the bride. Go for elegant open drapes, a delicate gold necklace set or chunky designer jewelry.
A blast of colors, a melange of exquisite patterns all coming together on a dramatic handcrafted pattu saree that's worthy of the ramps of Milan.
For those with an eclectic taste and love for handwoven goodness, we have our Folklore collection featuring extensive rural art and crafts motifs in vibrant colours. Also explore our Magna, Spectra and Vista fusion silks that tell a vivid story.
Styling tip When wearing a bold vibrant saree, keep the styling muted. Nude makeup, sleek hair and a single piece of statement jewellery is sufficient.
It can be a bold kada, a nouveau necklace or an elegant earring. Less is more with this style of silk.
Break away from the gold monotony to explore some stellar silk drapes with silver zari.
Have we told you that we are the pioneers in experimenting with silver zari that has caught on like wildfire today? We love to pair silver zari with blue, ash, gray and black that perfectly compliment the bright shimmery border.
Styling tip You may be tempted to go overboard with silver jewelry, but wait.. We think a guttapusalu (necklace in silver with pearl detailing and filigree work) is the perfect accessory to go with your silver zari.
You can also pair it with a dainty diamond necklace and a slender bangle for a very elegant look.
This festive season, get hold of the most eye-catching designs in silk and fall in love with this hand woven beauty yet again.
Who knows, you might have an heirloom in the making!
