Abhinav Mishra’s new collection “Mir” is inspired by the rich visual treat of ancient souks

Abhinav Mishra- Mir collection

A lively bustle, a treat for the senses, with colours, aromas and sounds abuzz. A cornucopia of textures, of artistry and of inspiration. Abhinav Mishra creates an ornate tale of fictional Jaigarh, a village synonymous with the celebration of colour and life. Reflecting the magical mania of the mela or local fair from a bygone era, elements from around the country come together and weave a tapestry of tales of their own. Borrowing elements from the organised chaos of the traditional spice markets, Abhinav Mishra’s line features vibrant hues that reimagine the brimming baskets of kesar, mirch and haldi. Inspired by the rich visual treat of ancient souks, the collection features an intricate design identity that brings to life the magnificent mayhem under the elaborately patterned dome of this iconic marketplace. 

The Abhinav Mishra bride tribe flutters about in the mid morning sun, adorning outfits that bring to life a cultural maze, with elements of India, Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran. Warm, vibrant hues like dreamy majorelle blues, luscious ruby reds, sprightly yellows, sprinkled with mirror work and exquisite gota patti imbibe a reverence for traditional Indian craftsmanship and silhouettes. Chevrons and florals, along with statement mirror work transcend time and find themselves at a glorious Indian wedding, with the sun shining overhead and the bustle alive with the bride tribe walking their best friend down the aisle.

Speaking about his new collection Abhinav Mishra said,“Thrilled to showcase the first of our 3 special collections this spring. Mir to me is a festival, a riot of colours and a celebration of life. It’s frenzied and abundant, it’s joyous and jubilant. It’s a stunning amalgamation of romance, of free-spirited love and light. ‘Mir’ is inspired by travel, architecture and a much-needed escapade that we all could use! It sets the tone for a bright new year, with a little sparkle and a whole lot of glamour built on the foundation of endless love.”
