Pero has worked with a group of Afghani refugees to create engineered crochet garments which mix wool yarn and textiles. This sustainable fashion and lifestyle brand has worked with Afghani craftswomen for its knitwear designs in the past. This season it worked with craftspeople to develop a style of crochet which can be used to join together scraps of fabric.
The mix of crochet and panels of fabric creates intricate patterns in the brand’s signature bright color palette. Pero has also released a fashion film featuring the experimental crochet pieces created by Flying Boots Production in collaboration with Feat Artists as well as a behind-the-scenes film to showcase the artisans working on the garments’ construction.
The brand recently held a launch for its latest collection at the multi-brand luxury Indian fashion boutique Ogaan. The installation features hand crochet items as well as coats, printed dresses, and accessories. The characteristic of the brand lies in the weaving process, where fabric and materials transfer from the hands of one artisan to another, bringing alive the Indian culture of handcrafting and designing pieces that are different. Pero reinvents classical styles to contemporary buyer’s aesthetics; its sensitivities evoke an impeccable statement in daily dressing.
