Each piece in the collection is given a name inspired by poetry including Hasrat, Jahan, Tabeer, Ranjish, and Arsh, among others. Shawls and sarees are contrasted by slightly more structured garments including a waterfall style jacket and loose cape.
The new collection, “seeks to engineer a language that derives inspiration from the magnificence of the past and translates it into a vision for the future,” Dusala announced on Facebook. The collection retails on Dusala’s dedicated e-commerce store and prices range from $929 (Rs 67,752) to $2,566.
The new line also features in a campaign shot by Ankit Chawla with model Rashmi Mann and coordinated by Jahnvi Bansal. The campaign also features “poetry and translation by Amit Aggarwal,” Dusala shared on Facebook.
Dusala specialises in pashmina weaves and retails from its founder Sugandha Kedia’s multi-brand store ‘One’ store in Raipur, as well as its e-commerce store. Kedia founded Dusala with the aim of promoting pashmina globally and providing employment for skilled weavers, according to the brand’s website.
