Last year, as we began to put together the new Summerheart range of soft silk handloom saris for this season, we found ourselves drawing inspiration from the idea of being Elsewhere—from the shifting moods of the sky and the colours of the earth. Little did we know then that this idea of elsewhere would become more poignant than ever, with the dramatic turn that the world has taken.
Kanakavalli presents Summerheart: Elsewhere, a collection of buttery soft silk saris within the much-loved Mandanila collective, that evoke memories of summers lost and found. Woven in a monsoon palette, ranging from lilac, peach and pale green, to deeper shades of rust, orange, red and black with hints of zari, these souffle soft silks are at once delicate and dramatic.
Join us as we travel Elsewhere with Summerheart 2020.
