Rahul Mishra announces opening of second flagship store in Mumbai
today Nov 21, 2018
Rahul Mishra opened a flagship store in the Kala Ghoda area of Mumbai last month which marks his second store in India following his Delhi flagship opened in 2017.
Mishra said in a press release that it had always been a dream of his to open a store in Kala Ghoda and this opening sees his dream realised. The store houses both Mishra’s ready-to-wear and couture collections which he has shown in Paris since 2015.
The store is strikingly bright and modern with all white walls, ceiling, and floor and natural elements can be found with an illuminated wall featuring plants on the other side. The open spaces and clean, simple layout allows for Mishra’s opulent couture to stand out without distraction.
Mishra conceived the store’s design with the architect Animesh Nayak and the pair opted for a contemporary yet aesthetic. Mishra explained that they used lighting and plants to add a freshness to the space and started with a simple grey cement cube that, through touches of wood and copper, was transformed into something at once precious and familiar.
Rahul Mishra launched his eponymous label in July 2008 in Mumbai after he graduated in Physics from Kanpur University and later from the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad. Mishra won the International Woolmark Prize in 2014 and now retails his brand internationally.
