péro Spring Summer 2023
péro spring summer 2023 collection, takes you to a fantasy land. Set in a field full of daisies and forget-me-nots, paving the way to a whimsical and dreamy expanse of pure nature. This season the label explored endless ways of simulating daisies and forget-me-nots in the form of crochet, laser-cut fabrics, beadwork, stumpwork, patchwork, appliqué, cutwork, schiffli, and many more techniques. The print surfaces for the season were developed using hand-painted daisies and forget-me bouquets tied with delicate satin ribbons as well as disintegrating bunches.
An array of fabrics woven by skilled craftspeople from Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh, and West Bengal have been used to create clothes for SS23. To compliment the delicate floral prints, a variety of stripes hand-woven in silk and cotton in varied weights, include ‘mashru’ a traditional textile from Gujarat, gabardine, and taffeta silks from the south of India. Apart from these the collection uses basic cotton fabrics ranging from gingham checks to linen stripes and gauze-like solid fabrics with contrast selvadge and handwoven jamdanis with daisy and forget me not flowers, developed in close association with the weavers.
The color palette for the season is predominantly yellow, with shades of blue and white, borrowed from the daisies and forget-me-nots, with accents of green and a burst of luminous pink to enhance the softness of a rather subtle color palette. This season too péro continued their association with Afghani refugee women to explore the old-school crochet technique with a fresh take by making fully crochet garments as opposed to delicate edgings which we have been doing for the past few seasons.
