Mirror Mirror Handmade Kurtas
Jeanine Recckio’s tunic-like kurta tops come in pretty shades of black, seafoam green, aqua & pale pink, and are incredibly versatile … throw one over a bikini as a chic cover-up, or wear it out to lunch with some Capri pants & sexy heels. The kurtas are exclusively hand-made in the villages surrounding Lucknow in central India … an area made famous for designing the wardrobes for the Moghul royalty. The lightweight tops are ideal for warm weather thanks to the “chikan” and “whitework” techniques which create open holes overlaid with beautiful hand embroidery to allow air vents for cooling. This feature keeps fashionistas refreshed as they jet off to the Hamptons, Harbour Island & Nantucket … any destination with a hot climate.
The kurtas’ loose fit makes them universally flattering & the intricate white-on-white hand embroidery involves a rare, treasured technique that dates back to ancient royal times … seldom used now as machines have largely replaced handiwork.
The kurtas are 100% silk, rayon, or cotton, and come in a fashionable array of delectable colors, lengths & sizes (small – XXL). Each kurta retails for $135 and are available exclusively at her boutique-within-a-boutique at the Trump Spa at The Mar-a-Lago Club & the Mirror Mirror Beauty & Lifestyle Concept Boutique on Palm Beach’s fashion-forward Worth Avenue … a pastel-hued, fashion-forward retail space/emerging trend lab showcasing rare gems found on Jeanine’s travels.
