Fabindia’s all-new Rimjhim Collection showcases the best of Indian materials and craftsmanship
‘Khedan de din chaar…,’ said Baba Bulleh Shah, the 17th-century Sufi poet and philosopher, implying that you have but four days to play, so you’d better make the most of it. And Fabindia’s all-new Rimjhim collection – a rich, vibrant ensemble of ethnic Indian clothing and accessories for men, women and children – is the perfect embodiment of that. Designed for the upcoming festive season, the Rimjhim collection celebrates the best of ethnic Indian fashion, made with the best of materials, with high levels of traditional Indian craftsmanship.
Bursting with colour and radiating the sheer joy that the rainy season brings with it, the Rimjhim collection encompasses an exclusive, premium range of kurtas, Nehru jackets, salwars, dhotis, shirts and trousers for men, and saris, kurtas, salwars, dupattas and more, for women. The collection also includes footwear for both men and women and a selection of bags, jewellery and sleepwear only for the ladies. The little ones aren’t left out either; the Rimjhim collection also includes a range of clothing for children. There are shirts, kurtas, jackets, dhotis and sleepwear for the boys, and suits, frocks, dresses and pyjama sets for the girls, which should keep the young ones happy. With the festive fervour right around the corner, the collection can be adorned to perfectly complement the celebratory spirit!
Celebrating Indian craftsmanship and melding the traditional with modern design sensibilities, the Rimjhim collection makes use of luxurious silk and cotton textiles, including Chanderi, Maheshwari, and Banarasi. Expert stitching and tailoring techniques are used to create dramatic silhouettes, which highlight bold colours against a backdrop of softer hues. Contrasting colours, metallic weaves, intricate embroidery and the interplay of different textures and rich materials is what makes the Rimjhim collection truly special.
Standout pieces in the Rimjhim collection include kurta sets dipped in blue tones, a pink ombre-dyed linen shirt, a Bandhani dress with an extended hemline in yellow and pink, Jamdani and Maheshwari saris, lehengas with tassels, tiered maxi dresses, ghera skirts, a cotton-silk cutwork kurta in white and gold, a Jacquard woven sari in white and gold, and much more. In addition to the wide range of clothing, there’s also a range of exquisite accessories that includes contemporary scarves, gold- and silver-plated jewellery, leather footwear and bags, all of which boast praiseworthy craftsmanship.
