The thing about ethnic wear is that it's hard to wear it without looking unoriginal. Kurtas and company are fine and comfortable but, let's admit it, hardly ever trendy.
But what if one took all the beauty and uniqueness of traditional, regional Indian textiles and applied it to garments that sit in between Western and Indian fashion? What if you wore something that feels ethnic but looks a bit different, with little accents such as appliqués and small silver buttons? That would actually be pretty cool.
Which is why we fell for Péro ("to wear" in Marwari). A collection by Aneeth Arora, a young designer from Udaipur who studied fashion in Bombay and textiles at NID, Ahmedabad, Péro was our favourite out of those we saw at the Delhi Fashion Week in late February.
Péro's clothes range from bright and colourful to grey and monochrome, and all the textiles are designed by Arora and custom-made, from multi-layered creations that mix textiles of different traditions to embroidered shirts of cotton so delicate it feels like silk.
The summer collection this year is really playful, with contrasting patterns and interesting colour combinations, go check it out.
