Lodz, Poland – For Fall Winter 2017/18 we find designer Rahul Mishra influenced by artists works dating back to the 19th Century.
The vibe is nostalgic, romantic yet serene and casual. Basic sporty attire is mixed with multicolored designs and artsy embroideries. Garments are treated like canvas to create masterpieces rich in details. Checks in retro version give a masculine vibe to the classical English chic. There are also some Spanish touches with the rich, bold ruffles. Stripes of various sizes have their moment also on the catwalk. To give a finishing touch one can see recreated Vincent van Gogh and Paul Signac nature inspired works through the embroidered designs like sunflowers, cherries, trees and flowers.
The lengths are midi and maxi. They place their focus more on the neckline and arms. The silhouettes appeal a little oversized in the way they flow on the body. Through the boxy and cylindrical shapes, we are reminded of old films options given new life by the abstract details.
The peplum and the eclectic combinations remind the wicked styles of the 80’s. The work consists mainly of long dresses, skirts, trousers, jackets, tops, shirts, sweaters and bomber jackets. The concept is recreated in a up-to-date manner giving the work a wide range of usage both editorial and every day life as a statement piece.
