As much as I love the convenience of pret, there’s something magical about unstitched fabric – that feeling of unexplored possibilities and the ability to give an outfit a truly unique twist. This weekend Khaadi launched the first volume of their Unstitched Winter Collection and so of course I headed to Dolmen Mall to check in out.

How lovely are these colours?

I have to admit that I’m very fussy about fabric which is why I’ll only buy unstitched suits from a handful of brands. Khaadi’s fabric is top-notch, which is why they are always one of my picks for a seasonal wardrobe update.

The Winter Unstitched Volume 1 offers a huge variety of fabric and prints with something for everyone, whether they live in the tropical south or the chilly north of the country. From khaddar to poly-viscose to formal silk and chiffon, there’s plenty of choice for a festive winter season.

The most formal parts of the collection are the chiffon range, featuring printed silk backs and embroidered chiffon fronts, and the embroidered khaddar 3-piece outfits with gorgeous printed shawls. There are also embroidered two-piece outfits and, for everyday wear, printed two-piece and three-piece outfits.

Such evocative prints for winter from khaadi

Personally, as pretty as these outfits are, almost one of them are styled the way I would style them. That’s really the beauty of unstitched fabric, you can style it anyway you please. One of the things I love about the two piece khaddar outfits was the number that featured embroidered pants. At around Rs2,200, these are a steal as the embroidered pants can be mixed and matched with so many different outfits.

For example, with this outfit, which is actually more of a mint green than the colour it appears in this picture, I would wear the pretty print with cigarette pants in the bark brown hue in the print while I’d pair those lovely embroidered trousers with a simple off-white khaddar top.

From delicate florals to bold geometrics to diffuse prints, the collection has plenty of variety. This pretty geometric embroidery with a kaantha-style shawl is striking and atmospheric for the winter season.
