While our wardrobes may be flooded with all the “IT” pieces and, don’t we all find it hard to part with that white Chikankari kurta, or Rilli shalwar or even that Tarkashi dupatta we’ve had for eons? Has your lawn-mania subsided and are you regretting all the money splurged on 3 Pc suits that didn’t last for more than a season? Have you ever considered how your fickle shopping behaviour contributes to landfill?
For these reasons classics will always be a go-to for everyone! But… Only the smart and savvy know that classic style is not about being predictive or old-fashioned—no way.
It’s about timeless trends, clean silhouettes, high quality fabrics and embellishments that come together in thoughtfully paired pieces that always look polished and chic. Additionally, you can invest in a few pieces, use them for a longer period of time and become a socially conscious shopper and a global change-maker- yes, YOU!
And here’s how GENERATION’S CLASSIC and COTTAGE lines enable you to achieve that: 1. Fabrics
Inspirations for collections come from timeless fabrics like Banarasi jacquards, ghimghams, tapestries and what not! Fabrics are high-quality, custom designs that can easily withstand washes for a long period of time.

3. Limited pieces
The 3 Pc and 2 Pc suits- a suit combination trend which GENERATION spear headed in retail,by the way- in any collection from these lines are in limited quantity not only because of the amount of pain-staking effort that goes in them, but this thwarts over-exposure of designs so you only stand out in the crowd, but can revitalize pieces time and again.
