A perennial name in the Paris Haute Couture Week calendar, Rahul Mishra no longer needs an introduction—even on the international circuit. With celebrities like Ashley Park from Emily In Paris and stylist Law Roach (Zendaya’s fashion Godfather) gracing his front row and fashion watchdogs like Diet Prada boasting about his latest collection, Rahul has risen the ranks. With a vision to push the boundary each season, this time around, Rahul has crafted his own intergalactic universe with larger-than-life silhouettes, each piece fit for a museum. Combining his futuristic with grassroots craftsmanship, Rahul’s collection offers you the best of both worlds. In case you missed it, Let’s look at some of our favourite looks from his 2023 showcase at the Paris Haute Couture Week.
1. Sage Green Scales
With its roots in the Sanskrit proclamation “Aham Brahmasmi,” which means “I am the cosmos,” Rahul Mishra’s Cosmos is a conception of physical reality based on the deepest truth of who we are.
2. Gilded Wonder
This collection represents their most passionate attempt at surface development. It is achieved in two and three-dimensional hand embroidery and is complemented with elements made of hand-cast reclaimed brass that is gold plated and covered in Swarovski crystals.
3. Jewelled Jellyfish
Each item is individually hand-crafted in a different Indian village, creating an average of more than three thousand hours of work.
4. Coral Cluster
While some works depict human habitations as enormous ecosystems that grow upward like a weed, others focus on other animals that are living in creative environments.
5. Battlestar bodysuits
The line aims to be “art” while yet being “fashion, keeping independent of fads and retaining the whimsical quality of “classic.”
