As a label, Mishru has been defined by its quest for the extraordinary amongst the ordinary. This season, the label blends the rational and the irrational by celebrating the weird and the whimsical.
Titled ‘Synthesis’, the spring/summer 2020 collection juxtaposes marbling with existing surface techniques in the label’s signature style. The start-to-finish handmade process is an ode to the dynamic phenomenon of marbling which creates beautiful, one-of-a-kind surfaces.
With no two pieces alike, the laborious technique of marbling finds a canvas on a wide array of fabrics, including georgette, organza, tulle, dupione and chanderi. The lineup expresses the romanticism at the heart of the label with soothing hues such as basil green, charcoal, rosewood, ultramarine blue, and dusty purple.
The hand-marbled fabric is accentuated with intricate hand embroidery, featuring a mix of thread and zardozi embroidery. Through this collection, the label seeks to evolve its repertoire, silhouette, construction, and fall, leading to a more exuberant vision for the season ahead.
