Eyelet.jpgNo longer reminiscent of vintage table cloth or little girl frocks, broderie anglaise is now high street fashion. The British style of cut-work and needlework embroidery, in the shapes of flowers, leaves or vines, has not only made a fashionable come-back this month with Oscar De La Renta and Valentino’s Spring Summer Collection 2015, but has also broken free from traditional whites. Sara Brown, of Turquoise and Gold, who featured the eyelet detail in her High Summer Collection of yellow, green and white crop-tops, says, “As a British-born  designer, I love using broderie anglaise, as it evokes summer picnics and lazy afternoons. Using the fine cotton and cut-work embroidery, we sat our classic white alongside bold jewel brights,” she says. Sabyasachi, Pero and Pawan Sachdeva have also flirted with the style, with designer Nandita (of Hemant and Nandita) saying, “BroderieAnglaise adds a distinct texture to any garment since it is not flashy at all.  we would like to stress on its usage in Indian ethnic wear like salwar-kameez, kurtis, etc.”

Prices starting Rs 4,750 onwards. Details:
