Misha Lakhani, among Pakistan’s most coveted designers, has launched her label’s Eid collection titled ‘Izmir’. The line will be available at the brand’s flagship store in Karachi and on the brand’s Facebook page, according to a press release.

‘Izmir’ is a holiday-inspired collection of works with an eclectic and modern take on Ottoman art and antique textiles, and features a number of separates. The line features fractural formations, stripes, tiles, calligraphy and quintessential motifs of the era.

Speaking about the Eid collection, creative head Misha Lakhani said, “Our Eid collection is a modern interpretation of Ottoman art, culture and textiles. True to our aesthetic and ethos, expect old-world charm through an eclectic mix of old crafts and modern ideas with a grown-up bohemian vibe.”

The colour palette boasts diversity, including hues, such as scuba blue, jade, ivory, terracotta, rust, aquamarine, olive, red, emerald green and honey. Izmir is complemented by a diverse range of accessories, comprising layered jewelled and tasselled belts, jhumka necklaces, wrap-around leather belts and clutches – all designed in-house.

Misha Lakhani is a haute couture label, which began in Karachi in 2012. Driven by a festivity of craftsmanship and heritage, the brand aims at reinterpreting the traditions of handwork and couture techniques. The brand is now expanding into a second standalone store in Lahore, and will soon be available online through an independent e-commerce store.
