It’s National Handloom Day on August 7 and we at Vogue India are celebrating a month-long line-up of all things handloom, starting with the celebrities who choose the luxury of handmade in their wardrobes. Mira Rajput Kapoor, who balances her style with traditional and contemporary pieces, has over time injected her closet with some of the choicest handloom pieces. She wears them with ease, mixing them with basics from her own collection. Think jeans with a hand patchworked top, or an all-over Benarasi brocade suit. The labels that garner top-drawer status for her are Anita Dongre, Ritu Kumar and Anavila, among others. Her 2.7 million Instagram followers have a front row seat to her proclivity for homegrown labels. Here’s how Mira Rajput Kapoor wears handloom in her day-to-day life. Take note. 

Easy does it 

Nothing says ‘closet essential’ more than an oversized shirt. Rajput Kapoor posted a breezy image of herself in a floral Anavila kurta shirt recently, made in handwoven cotton-linen. The shirt makes a perfect mate for a pair of casual denims or coloured trousers.

Colour-coded

A white top with a twist, Rajput Kapoor wears an off-white khadi blouse featuring a kaleidoscope of Kutchi embroidered patchwork. The top packs power in its puffed sleeves, and the flurry of colours on its yoke.  

Strictly structural

Recently seen at Paris Haute Couture Week autumn/winter 2021-22, Vaishali S’s brand DNA lies in handwoven fabrics. Rajput Kapoor was spotted wearing one of the creations on her Instagram recently, keeping the look simple to highlight the structural piece.  

Sheer delight 

Mira Rajput Kapoor’s Goa wardrobe is one of the most covetable jet-setter wardrobes we’ve laid eyes on. It mixes homegrown labels like Saaksha & Kinni with classic dresses and swimsuits from international labels. Here, she wears a handwoven organza cape paired with contrasting pants. The cape’s beadwork detailing and open-front silhouette makes it a statement piece we would like to add to our carts. The pairing is a much welcome upgrade to the casual kurta set. 

To the max

Rajput Kapoor gravitates towards labels that have handlooms entrenched into their narrative. Ritu Kumar is one such label that has historically brought handlooms to the forefront. The mom-of-two shows us how a modern Indian woman, who likes contemporary silhouettes, can bring craftsmanship to her sleeve in this look.
