LEAVE ITTO A&T to pick some­thing lo­cal and make it glob­ally ap­peal­ing. For their Fall 2014 show at the Wills Life­style In­dia Fash­ion­Week, it was the silks of the North­east: Eri, muga, and tus­sar used mostly in their nat­u­rally-oc­cur­ring colours. “We wanted to showcase the ver­sa­til­ity of the tex­tiles of that area,” says Rakesh Thakore. Graphic weaves (think over­sized tri­an­gles in black and khakhi) adorned sari pal­lus and skirt hems. The ul­ti­mate sur­prise was the leopard print de­signed to “heighten the sa­fari-like feel of the col­lec­tion,” says Thakore. In par­tic­u­lar, look out for in­tri­cately wo­ven saris paired with trench coats and printed top-and-trouser com­bos that will soon be on ev­ery­one’s must-have list.
