Earlier seen at most exhibitions and festivals, Purohit has recently opened a permanent haunt in Lokhandwala. Her speciality lies in mixing batik and organic Indian fabrics with western styles to make comfortable and hip outfits. While they have their gipsy feel to them, they are easy to carry for everyone, irrespective whether you’re 16 or 60 years old. One material they swear by is malmal (velvet), which makes everything you wear so soft, it’s as good as a part of your skin.
They make ghararas, jumpsuits and standalone kurtas as well. You can pick the handwoven gharara with a little bit of gota-patti work, or a floor-length piece in pastel shades or even hand block printed maxis. Their collection starts at INR 2,000 for kurtas and goes up to INR 8,000 for sharara and gharara sets.
To match most of their collection, they also have juttis (INR 1,500) in pleasant prints with laces and borders that make it an all-rounder, fit to be worn for casual and formal outings alike. And the best part? They make their juttis with soft-padded soles that makes this footwear just as comfy as their clothing.
To complete that look, you can also pick jewellery pieces from this store. To give you an idea, a kundan set – a bold neck piece with straight danglers – is priced at INR 3,500 and a kundan maang tika is available for INR 3,600.
