Mishru to present the Spring-Summer'19 collection 'Reminisce' at LFW 2019

After tasting phenomenal success in the first season, fashion label Mishru is all set to return to the runway at Lakme Fashion Week 2019, with Reminisce, a traditional collection with a couture twist.

The collection will focus on a warm and dreamy colour palette with a touch of traditional heritage memories sets the designer's modern appeal this season. The designer believes that as billowy days and endless nights draw near, summer always makes us excavate our personal memories and moments to reminisce about the days past. With this collection, one would go back to days of growing up in the beloved city of Hyderabad, where several time periods collide. The result is an amalgam of our personal trajectory with the city’s history to create a timeless collection that feels both, modern and romantic.

At the core of Reminisce is the use of time-honoured materials and techniques in an avant-garde manner. The team has put the spotlight on the gota lampi from the Nizamian era but will also reinvent it as a show-stealing fabric rather than being relegated to use as a sidekick of a border. They will also convert our obsession with the intricate jaalis (lattices) at the majestic Paigah Tombs which transform into detailed surface embellishments on our pieces.

The very gemstones that have nicknamed our home ground as the City of Pearls make appearances too, and so does the rococo art from the glorious Chowmahalla Palace. Inspired by the Rococo art, the Reminisce colour palette is soft and airy—full of white, ivory, blush, mauve and warm grey tones. Rococo’s love for asymmetry, floral motifs, and gilding are carried forward in pieces from the collection too.

By re-imagining fragments from the past in an entirely modern way, the team hopes for Reminisce to become an extension to the Mishru woman who knows how to romance nostalgia but also finds a way to effortlessly bring her past into her present.
