Rahul Mishra SS15 Collection is beautiful to the eye and sleek to wear.
The 33 piece collection “The Ferryman’s Tale” was inspired by the traditional Japanese stencil art and old chintz textile techniques. Fusing the eastern artisans with the western retailers and indian craftsmanship and design. The Indian craftsmanship techinques are the main focus within the collection. As Rahul Mishra wanted to convey the skills used throughout the centuries that are still to this day so powerful. Hoping to use fashion as a way to get more power in India for employment and opportunities. Now that is a designer/label I would support. What also makes this collection interesting is the use of Merino Wool for an SS15 collection, proving that it can be a transitional fibre in all seasons.
Now lets focus more on the clothes…
As you can see the Rahu Mishra SS15 consists of structured blouses, beautiful floral hand embroidery, geometric patterns, hand stitched blossom features, delicate vine detailing, sheer lace embroidery, light mesh, contrasting modern and natural patterns/palettes, highly structured collars, sophisticated two piece suits, delicately detailed organza jackets and draping structures to give that feminine romantic feel.
Bold and natural palettes of ivory, off-white, gold, yellow, dusty grey and black. Giving that modern futuristic feel yet contemporary and romantic. To me the techniques used to form this beautiful collection is truly powerful and what grabs the attention of viewers at the Paris Fashion Week. Also on that note, he is the second indian to showcase at Paris so I am definitely going to watch this designer grow.
To conclude if you want a mixture of feminine, sporty, romantic, contemporary and modern then get your hands on these pieces. Better hurry I’ve heard they have sold out already and ordering the second shipment.
