Fashion Feature > Calantha Wardrobe


I was arrested by the images. The colors and the contrast, the photography, the choice of Indian classical dancers as models, the old world feel and a body language of so much comfort, like we chanced upon two friends enjoying a quiet afternoon and kept watching them because it was poetic. I am happy to present, Calantha Wardrobe’s Vintage Sari collection.

Roopa Pemmaraju, the creator of this collection, says “Calantha Wardrobe’s Vintage Sari range is a tribute to the sixties era with an infusion of modern style to saris with classic Indian prints. The current trend of geometrical prints contrasts with the dyed two-tones of the olden day colour palette. I have added a twist to my vintage sari range with modern cuts on high neck blouses, ¾ sleeves and adding ethnic patterns to luxurious chiffons and georgettes, thus bringing the sixties back. Yet from the look of this stylish collection, it seems like vintage never went out of style.”

<Calantha is Greek for ‘lovely flower’. Fnd them on facebook, write to them at or drop by at the store; 535, 12th cross, RMV 2nd Stage, HIG, Dollars Colony, Bangalore, India, 560097.
