Mumbai-based Anavila’s latest summer collection, Kaas, is now in stores and the collection of summer staples is inspired by the seasonal blooms in Maharashtra’s Kas Plateau. Expect hand-woven linen saris with metallic zaris and ombre kaftans. “I wanted to represent the plush texture of some of these flowers like the orchid. That heavenly soft touch that feels satiny on the outside and silky on the inside. My focus is coming back closer to home and seeing the beauty in India, Kaas is another step in that direction to help people discover the hidden wonders of India,” explains designer Anavila Misra.
