When Rahul Mishra won the International Woolmark Prize for 2013-14, we rejoiced, not only because he was an Indian designer but mostly because his work is so nuanced and progressive that it places him at the top of his league. As the finale of Day 2, his show could not have been placed better. Taking from the eight petal lotus, this collection was a beautiful palette of whites, blues and blacks. The merino wool here is engineered to create a permanent tie and dye that is so pleasing to the eye as it is tactile to feel. The collection was easy and wearable and left me wanting for more. Here’s to many more awards, Rahul Mishra.
