There is an unparalleled sartorial aesthetic that Indian ready-to-wear fashion label Péro harbours. By weaving local textiles with bohemian inspired elements, founder Aneeth Arora has championed a modern reinterpretation of India’s craft, which has now become the label’s signature style. And its latest Fall-Winter 2021 collection is no exception.
In collaboration with famed fashion illustrator Richard Gomes, Péro created a number of frisky dolls based on Gomes’ drawings. These oversized doll figurines are constant through the collection, and lend the line its unique identity. “For Fall-Winter 2021, we tried to simulate tiny dolls as hangings by stringing together beads and buttons. We call this season ‘Mini’ after the dolls that have been incorporated in the clothing in various forms,” the indigenous label shared on its social media.
Set in alluring tones of neon yellow, navy blue, and magenta, the collection features loose androgynous tunics, oversized yet tailored coats, handbags and other wardrobe staples. Embellished with delicate knot-work and intricate hand-embroidery, ‘Mini’ is brought to life with bright and bold tartan textiles. A close look at the collection will introduce you to the iconic little Péro dolls hidden inside the line’s overcoats and also as tactile appliqués on loose tops.
Whether you’re in the ‘city of love’ aka Paris or walking through the streets of India, the collection is perfect to give your style a refreshing, eclectic upgrade.
With this striking collection, Péro is expanding overseas, and Mini will be available in stores in Italy, Japan, and the US. A wide range of dresses and jackets were launched in the multi-brand boutique Mikel Hunter and at If Soho in New York. Péro has also been building a steady following in Japan and continues to retail from a myriad of fashion boutiques in the country. In Italy, Péro launched Mini at Bertinotti Lecco in Lombardia and Simona Boutique in Finale Ligure.Invalid slider id. Master Slider ID must be a valid number.
