The Annabel Collection by Roopa Pemmaraju, Fall-Winter 2021, echoes the poetry of love and loss, interpreted in rich fabrications, nostalgic prints, and romantic silhouettes. Edgar Allan Poe’s Annabel Lee is a woman whose soul remains bound to her beloved’s through memories and nature, even among the angels. This collection is dedicated to our own Annabel, named Saroja: a kind, talented, and full-hearted woman who worked with us as an artisan for years until her passing in 2020.
The Annabel Collection is infused with Saroja’s creative vision, and with motifs influenced by her beautiful sarees. This collection, crafted responsibly from handwoven silk, velvet, and wool, features deep, introspective colors, vintage-inspired florals, and delicate hand embroidery created by artisans like Saroja at our Bengaluru atelier.
