At Evoluzione, Rahul Mishra will take you through his works of art
OUR global fashion hero, Rahul Mishra, will be in the city this weekend to showcase both Fourth Dimension, his spring-summer 2016 line showcased in Paris last year, and a curated selection of precious bridal couture. Mishra’s continuing story of age-old craftsmanship is explored with the concept of the dot, through luxury pret and 3D motifs that push the envelope of imagination. When he presented the line in Paris, the designer explained how each part of his beautiful fashion canvas was created individually without his craftsmen being aware of the final design. And yet it all comes together like a work of art, like an Escher painting, to be precise. His commitment to his artisans and the preservation of their skills is well documented. So you can be assured of a museum-worthy piece, be it a jacket, palazzos or a short dress. As for the fabrics, there is organza with leatherette, high grade poly jersey and unimaginable experiments with wool.
Meanwhile, the bridal collection demands a closer look, even if there is no big fat wedding coming up. Don’t miss the hand-embroidered lehengas, voluminous kurta sets and saris. Coming from a man who has mastered the idea of wool for the tropics,you can be assured that the elaborate outfits will suit a summer bride. As for the name of the collection, the magic created by ‘‘human hands’’ is the fourth element added to the 3D patterns seen in the line.
At Evoluzione on February 13. Rs 50,000 onwards. Details: 28333627
