Over ten years, péro has created a universe where everything that comes out of the clothing brand sparks joy. From its signature poppy flowers, little hearts that are embroidered or enameled and metal-cast buttons to the woven fabrics and silhouettes that celebrate comfort—the Delhi-based label, under the creative direction of Aneeth Arora, does not just make clothes, it creates experiences.
Time to Love is an episodic exhibition that presents the practice of péro while celebrating its ten year long journey. Season after season, the brand has presented its eclectic range of clothing, made with the most essential ingredient of them all—love. The exhibition, which is currently ongoing, is held at 13, Barakhamba road, and is open to all until March 31 (from 11am to 7pm), and gives a peek into the brand’s universe.
The façade of the venue is covered with hearts and on entering the place, one would be welcomed by artisans crafting a péro garment from scratch—a practice that has been integral to the brand’s growth. There’s ‘kullad’ chai, the warm beverage that any péro event is incomplete without and other rooms let you take a deep-dive into the archives of péro. There are several other installations that are made as an ode to slow fashion—a philosophy that has guided the brand’s narrative into the future. And, there’s also a doll house that brings to mind péro’s collaboration with artist Princess Pea.
Like every initiative from the péro, Time to love is a breath of fresh air and a must-visit for anyone who loves the dexterity and thought that goes into good design.
