In love with Péro’s polka dots

I’ve been absent for awhile – film, work, love, travel, etc. – you name it, life absorbed me deeply … but come 2015, I was inspired by Péro’s polka dot ikat saree to return to SD  to say hello. Vogue India Fashion Fund winner, designer Aneeth Arora’s spring/summer ’14 collection was ruled by vintage polka dots apart from her signature gingham checks. Here’s why:
“I’m always inspired by things I see around me,” Arora tells Vogue in a post-show interview. “I saw lots of women on the street wearing polka dotted saris; dots in all sorts of vibrant colours and sizes. And they sported them with any kind of blouse; not matching ones.”
“I started off by printing dots using the Rajasthani block print and then moved on to creating dots with different techniques. I wanted to see how these craftspeople interpret the dot in their own way. The dot as a shape is so perfect. It was interesting for me to watch them try to achieve perfection.”

Mercy Tetseo, the eldest of the lovely Tetseo Sisters who is celebrated as the cultural ambassadors of Nagaland, is seen here wearing Péro’s polka dot limited edition saree from Péro’s spring/summer ’14 Labour of love collection. I simply love, love, love how Mercy stylized the saree with micro-checks long sleeve cotton shirt to contrast it with the hot pink checks – made it all more retro and chic.
Here’s a close up of the saree, now you know why I’m crazy about this piece, so, it’s going into my must-have list 🙂
