Ten-Second Takeaway

Going against the hullabaloo and marketing gimmick that the festival season tends to become, The Summer House’s new collection, The Non Festive Edit is all about responsible fashion, with a focus on handmade and local. Plus, styles that will outlast the season.

Keeping It Real

We’re fans of The Summer House for their unconventional outfits, but you knew that already. So imagine our happiness when they came out with their latest collection — Non Festive Edition. Featuring a luxe line of tops, skirts, dresses and jackets, we love that this capsule collection doesn’t adhere to any flash-in-the-pan trends. And look out for little details — from a simple belt to cutesy ruffle pleats.

Edgy Elegance


Fuss-free, airy, lightweight and very chic, most of the outfits are made from handwoven khadi, organic cottons with silks and tencel {an environmentally friendly regenerated fabric} adding that luxe edge. We instantly fell in love with Cayenne, a red breezy jacket with box pocket and raglan sleeve. But it was a toss up between that and Lauper — a cheery yellow, organic cotton dress. There’s also the Japan-inspired skirt with a single-Origami fold that won our hearts. Clearly we’re tripping on the Japanese inspiration, as the Dama dress with kimono sleeves and sexy thigh high slits have got us saving up the monies.

The collection also offers tops with statement collars for work, boyfriend shirts in khadi and graphic designs on supple silk to take you straight from office to drinks at the bar.

So, We’re Thinking…

With responsible processes in making the versatile outfits, we’re happy to have a range that won’t go out of style by Christmas. But ladies, sizes only go up to medium, with few large ones thrown in.

Price: INR 1,850 upwards
