Colours come calling

The boutique focusses on contemporary styles for women who can appreciate Indian fabric yet love Western silhouettes.

Traditionally tailored in handwoven fabrics, fuss-free outfits in soft cotton, khadi and linen top the collections.

“Our works are mostly focussed on ‘kalamkari’, ‘ikat’ and various block prints,” says Priyanka Haridas, founder of ‘Pilgrim’.

The brand’s collections ‘Warm Edition’ and ‘The Earth Collection’, aim to offer fashion options for the stylish and sophisticated women of today.

The ‘Warm Edition’ is richer in colours and is designed in shades of red, blue, indigo and yellow, while ‘The Earth Collection’ is subdued, created in subtle colours like earthy tones and hues of light greens and yellows.

“We try to provide outfits like dresses, pants or bottoms, skirts and tops in all collections, so our customers have options to choose from. They vary in cuts and styles according to the collection,” says Priyanka.

The latest line, ‘The Earth Collection’ include maxis and tiered dresses, asymmetrical hemmed skirts, statement jackets and tops.

“We look forward to create fashion options that can be worn throughout the year. Our ensembles are made with care along with silhouettes that are classic,” she says.

The ‘Warm Edition’ includes skirts in shorter lengths while the current cool weather demands the inclusion of longer skirts in ‘The Earth Collection’. “There are pants and crop tops in the ‘Warm Edition’ too. ‘The Earth Collection’ has crop tops with bell sleeves with elastic waist-pants,” she says.

The brand aims to cater to young adults and working professionals.

“My collections are inspired from fabrics that have been sourced for the season. I look at the fabric and then draw patterns which can be worked with for the collection. My collections are not theme-based,” she says.
