This Boutique In Richards Town Is A Hidden Gem For Cotton Outfits And Dressy Ethnic Wear

Shortcut

Hidden away near Richard’s Park, Rui boutique has been dressing women in the city before the drama of fancy studios and designer wear came along.

Cotton On

Originally doing cotton stuff mostly {hence the name}, Rui Boutique’s founder was designing outfits – salwar kurtas, skirts and dresses, with the humble fabric. But the beauty was that it was made to look dressy and elegant. To match the class of the cotton, then and now, you can expect elegant embroidery, light embellishments and mixed prints and patterns to give you options you might not normally find. And the best part? The outfits you get here still stand out in a crowd of clones.

In The Summer Time

The summer collection is ruling the racks at the moment and we love the colour palette. Think bright pink, lemon yellow and parrot green. To add some quirk to your outfit, most dupattas {chiffon usually}, are either a contrast colour or are a mix of the main colour with a splash of contrast. Edgy yet elegant. Block prints, applique and dot mirrors are other favourites as this boutique. With prices starting at INR 1,500 for the set, it’s a great bargain. Kurtis with chikan work in pastels will work great for workwear and can be paired with jeans or linen trousers.

Taking it up a notch in the shaadi section, Rui had a range of anarkalis, kurtas and light lehenga. These are not cotton though, rather georgette, chiffon, net or synthetic fabric. We love that they don’t go over the top with mixing colours but experiment enough. The last visit saw this writer buy two elaborate anarkalis – one applique option in a bright yellow, and another rani pink one with a contrasting blue border and dupatta. For INR 5,000, both were duly worn at wedding sangeets and much complimented too.
