Talking Threads launches jackets with a modern Indian twist
In KEEPING with spring’s hottest trend, Talking Threads has launched a collection of embroidered jackets. A coming together of contemporary style and traditional Indian embroidery techniques that the portal is known for, the pieces are meant for modern women of all age groups who belong to their worldwide customer base.
“This spring, jackets have been spotted on all international runways. At Talking Threads, we are always experimenting with fabrics and Indian embroideries because we wanted to revive our heritage threads in a contemporary format for women of today,” says Kulbir Uppal, managing director.
Their boyfriend and bomber jackets feature phulkari embroidery in colours, monotones and multicoloured fabrics. The collarless boyfriend jacket with deep red thread work against a mustard yellow background was particularly eye-catching, perfect for a laid back brunch. Also worth mentioning is the bomber jacket in shades of royal blue, sky blue and hot pink, for those with an affinity for a more vibrant colour palette.
“We launched our jackets and coats in phulkari since this is the most loved thread work of our customers. Some prefer monotone embroidery while others love colors. At Talking Threads, we have it all,” she says, adding, “Our jackets are for women of all age groups and body fonts. For the adventurous, edgy woman, we have phulkari embroidered biker jackets, for a chic stylish woman we have beautiful boyfriend jackets and for those looking for sheer elegance, we have collarless coats. Our idea is to incorporate heritage threads into modern formats and we want women of all age groups to add Talking Threads to their daily wardrobes.”
Talking Threads’ regular range of products include sarees, saree blouses, dupattas and salwars apart from crop tops, blouses and tunics with embroidery techniques like phulkari, bhag, kashidari, gara, mukaish, aari and pashmina thread work. They are also known for customising their pieces based on customers’ requirements. “Whether it is getting your fit right, changing the design in our catalog to a style you want or tweaking colours to suit you better, ” Uppal elaborates.
The brand’s next collection will feature phulkari embroidery with a twist and chikankari in fresh styles for the summer. They also aim to focus more on cocktail sarees and dresses and trends like pastel tunics, wide-legged pants and embroidered palazzos.
