From Kanpur to Couture: Rahul Mishra

Rahul Mishra’s SS2018 collection explores the magic between hand embroidery and the dynamic movement of meticulous textile manipulation.

Already seen on the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week, Mishra's eye for aesthetics is spellbounding. His collection merges the playful with the feminine, the eclectic, free spirit with the respectfully tailored. As elegant as the collection is, key features include semi transparency, slits, pleats and cascading movement, which makes it versatile and easy to wear - with a structured blazer or bohemian t-shirt. The Spring Summer 2018 collection features a wide range of textile, combining jersey with linen, satin and new age denim, and cotton with silk mesh. At the heart of his work is a commitment to sustainable luxury, a practice that integrates handmade techniques using the skills of craft communities in India.

Embellished flowers, vivid summer colours, flirty lines and transparent strips of silk highlight the collection. The attention paid to flora and fauna is undeniably charming, while the lightness of fabric, the ease of movement and the effortless sophistication is what summer should be all about. There's nothing basic about this haute collection; Mishra has got couture down to a science and yet, his lineup of fashion masterpieces can be worn on any day. LUXOS features some favourite pieces, from the asymetrical yellow dress with off-the-shoulder side ties, flowing royal blue dresses and the hand embroidered spectral skirt with an audacious side slit.
