A combination of East and West

The traditional yet chic appeal of the latest summer collection from Mother Earth adds glamour to the season. The brand is a combination of Eastern hues and Western cuts, which make this collection stand out.

The latest collection at ‘Mother Earth’ comprises of simple yet stylish
kurtis, tops, dhoti patialas, skirts etc.

It has traditional patterns and designs which are also contemporary in style.

The clothes are designed for women of all age groups, keeping in mind their comfort and needs.

What makes this collection unique are the striking colours and bold prints.
The clever use of indigenous patterns weaved in Western cuts and drapes is what makes the collection trendy.

The soft cottons and the mix and match of raw silk and khadi, make the collection extremely appealing. It suits the needs of the modern Indian women.

Juhi, one of the designers with the brand, says that the collection has a very unique blend of colours and designs. Shades of indigo give the clothes an ethnic touch.

“We want to promote Indian designs and fabrics. The colours are very natural and bright, which is right for the season. One can go for the dhoti patialas. The halter-neck kurtas can be teamed with a light cotton skirt.

We have also used Mangalgiri cotton. And the raw silk adds a splendid touch to the attire. Those who prefer ethnic wear can opt for cotton kurtas which can be teamed with bright leggings,” she adds.

For those who like to experiment with their style, the collection is a treat, as the innovative styles can be mixed and matched for all occasions. Whether it is a khadi kurta or a Mangalgiri cotton short top, the choices are plenty. The unique mulmul based block prints and patterns weaved into kurtis add class to one’s wardrobe. This easy blend of trendy and traditional clothes is an ideal choice for work or home. One can team them with jeans, jeggings or leggings for everyday use.

You can also accessorise them with brightly coloured bracelets, earrings and neck pieces, which are also available at the store.
