Handcrafted Tops for Women – Sartorial Art Par Excellence
It is common knowledge that in any fashion ensemble today, ethnic designer tops are all the rage. Offered in an assortment of prints, colours, and styles, there is no preset formula for pairing ethnic wear tops with accompanying jewellery, bottoms, and footwear. Understanding this, Anita Dongre's Grassroot range of ethnic tunic dresses and handmade tops for women exhibit a remarkable spectrum of variety, from ornate traditional designs to the more restrained variants, which can be worn through the workday. The Grassroot line consists of clothing which is made with the help of local artisans using sustainable practices to benefit the economy of a remote village. Many of our handcrafted tops celebrate the genius of indigenous sartorial crafts. Our choice of fabric is limited to the finest rayon, cotton, viscose, and silk. The colour palette chosen for our catalogue ranges from off-white, daffodil yellow, cream, and crimson to darker shades such as seafoam green, azure, and jet black. Employing a diversity of embroidery techniques, including chikankari, gotta, and zardozi, our handcrafted tunics, shirts, and tops can make heads turn and become the highlight of any gathering. Each item in our collection has been crafted with the wearer's comfort, poise, and utility in mind.
Having established twelve stores around the world and with over five hundred points of sale in India, Anita Dongre's reputation as India's leading house of haute couture is no secret. Marrying the unique design, embroidery, and print artwork of India with fashion trends from around the world has been our label's trademark design philosophy for over two decades. The preferred choice of Indian and international glitterati, our extensive line of dresses, bridal lehengas, and sarees for women; and kurtas, sherwanis, and shirts for men has been redefining luxury Indian fashion for years. Our deep appreciation of the unique sartorial history of India has driven us to introduce its bounteous offerings to the world.
From the Fashion Sage's Mouth
Anita Dongre's collection of handmade tunics, shirts, and tops exemplify the versatility of the daily lives of Indian women. These creations, therefore, can be paired with a plethora of accompanying accessories. The elegant ivory Akori Top illustrates this point well. It can be worn with a pair of chinos or palazzo pants, a simple thread necklace, and a pair of cotton white espadrilles. The tranquil Ishira Tunic, on the other hand, may require a greater degree of embellishment to complement its graceful floral and vine motifs. Paired with a white metal plastron necklace, pearl drop earrings , and beige leather juttis, this tunic can capture a world of serenity. The Pepal Shirt, with its measured dose of carnation red and raven black against a background of smoky pink, requires little or no accentuation in the form of accoutrements. While elegant black trousers, blush pink ballet flats and a wristwatch with a leather band should suffice, a string necklace of jaspers and quartz will beautifully express your aesthetic sensibilities. No matter what you choose to pair our handmade ethnic tops with, you are dressed to impress and to strut with chutzpah.
