With Maraasim, designer Rahul Mishra successfully revived ancient visual expressions while exploring several new forms, with the ingenious use of geometry and arabesque to achieve patterns of dizzying complexity, at the India Couture Week. This season lead to the unveiling of menswear, while retaining the purity and uniqueness of the brand.

Maraasim explores the relationship of the balanced existence of nature and architecture, traditional and modern, blended to create fine works of art on handwoven textiles, bearing testimony to the inherent finer details of Indian craft. The collection with handwoven fabrics created an eclectic mix of beautifully handcrafted kurtas, bandgalas and silhouettes, an inspiration from traditional Indian ensembles added to the lehengas and kalidars of womenswear. Intricate vegetal motifs, with chevrons and spandrels from the rich decorative vocabularies of an earlier era came alive to make the meticulous surface treatment appear surreal.

"The Mughal aesthetic was not the invention of any single artist, nor of any particular group of artists; rather it was a blend of artistic practices of Persia, European influences of passing traders and missionaries, and the rich indigenous traditions of India. Nothing can be created in isolation, it was the cross-pollination of ideas that resulted in an entirely unique and unified aesthetic that were all expressions of a genuine delight in the creation of beauty," explained Mishra.
