Myoho, by Kiran and Meghna, known for their meticulous play of Indian weaves, showcased their Autumn Winter 16 collection, ‘Sandalwood’ earlier this evening. While introducing a new dimension to their collection channelling vintage decadence, the A/W line was seen on the runway at Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive
Myoho’s AW collection is a romantic reminiscence of the 1920s. It’s a distinct departure from the minimalism, Meghna and Kiran have enjoyed for some time now with their label.The collection echoed European fashion influence from the pre-independence era in India, creating a heady medley of flapper chic, Victorian decadence and desi sophistication.
This season Myoho has spotlighted on tiers, exaggerated circular ruffles and pleat details on relaxed, feminine and subtly dramatic silhouettes. The collection features drop waist silhouettes; styled as dresses and kurtas, and exaggerated sleeves with layers, to add a touch of vintage drama.
Myoho’s use of raised floral embroideries and the signature print for the season - a batik bold floral motif, are the key highlights from the AW line.
Designers Kiran and Meghna, have injected a sense of richness by introducing textured gold prints & Benarasi weaves along with classics, like moonga silks and chanderis. The colour palette ranges from icy greys to eye catching pinks and coffee browns, crafted in hand-woven moonga silk, tussar and tissue jamawar.
Myoho has captured this essence beautifully into a modern- romantic wardrobe that is wearable yet dramatic.
The brand has collaborated with Zevar Pret for statement jewellery pieces that were customised for the runway presentation, and Love and Cheesecake, a Mumbai based patisserie that will feature Myoho’s signature brownies on their menu from 25th to 31st August.
‘Sandalwood’ collection by Myoho will be available at Aza, Melange, Atosa and Fuel (Mumbai), Ensemble (Mumbai & Delhi), Chennai & Bangalore – Evoluzione and Collage, Elahe in Hyderabad, Elan in Ahmedabad and their own studio space in Mumbai.
