Misha Lakhani has just released her 2019 AW Couture Collection, called Pairidaeza and it’s just what you need for the ton of weddings coming up this winter. The collection consists of versatile separates that you can mix and match for a variety of looks which is fabulous because between all the dholkis and mendhis and shendhis and whatnot, a woman needs plenty of wardrobe options for winter in Karachi.
From frothy lenghas that pool at the feet to cool cropped jackets, the collection is full of interesting pieces. The range includes crushed gagras, anarkalis, skinny shalwars, cropped izaars, kalidars and draped skirts with structured jackets. The palette is a gorgeous selection of ivory, lime and pink to reds, corals and blacks – festive and fresh. As you’d expect, this is quintessential Misha Lakhani -a contemporary twist on the traditional, steeped in artisanal craft and oh-so-beautiful.
Pairidaeza celebrates freedom and versatility and features Misha’s signature craftsmanship with an emphasis on subverting traditional motifs and reinterpreting them in a manner that is contemporary yet classic. Romantic, modern and nostalgic at the same time, the collection embodies a new voice of tradition.
Pairidaeza also features hand-embroidered miniature and jeweled backless khussas, created in collaboration with Miaasa.
