We're quite familiar with slow fashion brands now, and we've noticed that while the designs and quality are always top-notch, the variety definitely leaves something to be desired. So when we found Aroka at a local shopping festival, we were wowed by the diversity of what they've got - Scarves and stoles, pants, tops, day dresses, kurta shirts, and jackets.
Bear in mind that their range does count as premium - the stoles and scarves start at INR 1900, but the dresses, sarees and co-ords can cost you a pretty penny - we spotted a stunning sage green organza saree that costs INR 46,500. An embroidered Khadi corset dress (befittingly named Winter Sunshine) will cost you INR 42,000.
We also loved the designs for men - especially the Indigo Bhagalpuri Linen Jacket (INR 17850) and the Going Rogue kurta (INR 7800) - a paprika-coloured number which looks so, so dapper.
We suggest shopping from them if you're happy to spend on uber-elegant (or dapper) slow fashion ensembles that are pretty much timeless. The scarves and stoles make for great luxe-on-a-budget gifts, and well, you could always wait for a sale!
