This collection is very special to me because at this time of the year we can play with pastels and splashes of colour, which is my signature and has been a recurring theme of my designs since the start. I like building a story around each design as each outfit is close to my heart and represents memories and real-life experiences.
This entire campaign celebrates those special days when a girl is getting married and focusses on her bond with her best friends, which to me is the foundation of my entire campaign. This new line ‘The Royals’ is a surreal interpretation of those moments grounded in love and friendship. It spread across 4 themes and each represents a different mood and vibe, with the entire premise built on love.
This collection is different from the previous Winter collection as there’s a lot more summery colours as well as prints, there’s also a whole new line of men’s kurtas which complement our collection beautifully. You will see a classic Abhinav Mishra vibe throughout the collection however it is ideal for the season and that makes it different from our Autumn Winter 2019 collections.
This collection is perfect for the 2020 bride because the ‘millennial bride’ has come to be our core consumer and she is unafraid of experimentation and taking risks. Colours go beyond red and maroon, the bride and her friends are suiting their style and not adhering to age-old traditions however still staying grounded and celebrating their heritage. It is this sentiment of ‘old meets new’ that makes the collection ideal for the 2020 bride.
The first theme under The Royals' Spring Summer 2020 is a 'Sunflower' collection by Abhinav Mishra that talks about a mystical & bohemian day-time affair where the millennial bride dances with the wind in her hair and the sun at her feet.
