Rayil – Spring/Summer 2013


I discovered this exciting new label at Playtime and was itching to show you more of what this lovely, romantic newcomer has to offer for their very first season: Spring/Summer next year. I know that this summer is winding down but I’m never not in the mood to think about next summer!

For this season, Rayil debuts with Benarasi Silk from the Benaras region in North India, Chanderi Silk from the Chanderi region in Central India and cotton Khadi – a fabric popularized by Gandhi during the Indian Independence Movement. Rayil is a joint production of Los Angeles based Aruna Hatti (founder of Gnaana, which retails eco-friendly, high-style educational material about the Indian subcontinent) and Moutushi Sarkar, a fashion designer based in New Delhi. Moutushi has designed for such global brands as Urban Outfitters, Rene Derhy and Derhy-Kids, and Miss Selfridge . Check their website to see where you can get ahold of these!
