Pari Desai AW16

Pari Desai AW16

Sometimes you come across a label that really gets you by the throat. Or perhaps something a little less violent. Pari Desai is a Canadian designer whose eponymous label has achieved exactly this kind of impact, delivering a couture feel to knitwear - that most under-estimated of textures. There have been stints at Calvin Klein and A.L.C. in the lead up to the launch of the brand, as well as a real rich training with a focus on expertise and technique. This is a designer who knows tailoring and millinery, as well as the knits that the brand is gaining ground for – and who has taken the trouble to get up close to the mechanics of knit production too.

The collections so far released combine wardrobe essentials that are anything but basic, and stand out pieces that will give you goosebumps. Look out for the full length knits from AW16, the block colour sweaters in ice cream shades and the asymmetric column dress. Expect complete disrespect for traditional silhouettes and proportions and a mixing of textures, from knit ribs to striped cottons.

The most recent SS17 collection embraced a love for the red rose – embroidered onto sweatshirts was our particular favourite look. A dash of slippery silk expanded the knit textures and dresses came in all varieties, from crochet through to shirted.
