Raw Mango by designer Sanjay Garg’s latest clothing range for Good Earth, a luxury Indian design house, is titled ‘A Thousand Flowers’. The collection was launched recently, and it is now available exclusively at Good Earth stores at Raghuvanshi Mills, Mumbai, and Khan Market, Delhi.
Based on Garg’s previous collections one can say that the designer loves to turn to nature for inspiration. Think peacocks, monkeys, trees, shrubs, and more. He then artistically embeds them onto woven textiles to create ensembles that combine the contemporary with the traditional. ‘A Thousand Flowers’ is no different.
Both Raw Mango and Good Earth share a love for flowers and that’s exactly what reflects in ‘A Thousand Flowers’. It draws inspiration from the ‘abundant Hazara motifs seen on surface ornamentation of paper-mâché’, reads the design house’s introductory post on Instagram for this new collection.
The post also mentions that “the collection is filled with chintz florals through weaves, prints, and hand work”. It is bright with shades of red, pink, green, blue, yellow, black, and orange; and the colours, prints, embroidery, and weaves evoke a sense of nostalgia one design element at a time. Patrons and fashion enthusiasts can expect loose kurtas, jackets, waistcoats, pants, saris, cropped shirts, and blouson tops in Banarasi silk brocade, silk, and mashru.
Raw Mango and Good Earth are two brands that have been dedicated to putting the spotlight on Indian craftsmanship. This collection, 'A Thousand Flowers', is just an example.
