After having gained expertise by working alongside well known international brands in the high fashion industry, the husband-wife duo of Puneet and Shruti Mangla launched Perona in 2018 as they felt it was time to explore fashion with their own brand and ‘sew their very own, unique story’. Perona stitches together the realm of experiences of their life and work, serving as a holistic platform for not only showcasing the nucleus of their craft but also the expression of their core values, beliefs and aspirations.

A homegrown luxury brand, at Perona, the designs are inspired by modern minimalism, that share common aesthetics with Japanese Zen philosophy. The products embody reflections of this philosophy, as seen in the kaleidoscope of nature, architecture and art.

The brand has now launched its Fall-Winter 2023 collection, Soulful Minimalism, that embodies the spirit of embracing one’s personal journey, while not making just a fashion statement. “Our hope is that each wearer finds resonance with the philosophy, making these garments a reflection of their inner values and aspirations. Embrace the mindfulness, the purpose, and the beauty of soulful minimalism as you don these pieces with intention,” says Shruti, creative director and co-founder of Perona, adding, “This collection embraces care-culture that exudes versatility allowing the wearer to personalise their style. With each piece, we hope to inspire a sense of tranquility, a deeper connection to oneself and a commitment to a more conscious and soulful approach to fashion.”

Perona’s signature ‘less is better’ ethos carries on with this collection as well. Shruti explains, “Having gone through an emotional rollercoaster in the past few years, humans are expressing themselves with an outpouring of energised creativity and building their own world around the chaos. With familiar traditional artistry embedded in modern contemporary shapes, this collection marries familiar techniques of the past with the creation of a forward-thinking, sensual aesthetic to embody a sense of soulful minimalism.”

One can look forward to innovatively crafted pleat work, laser cutwork, metallics, sheers, prints, Sherpa & bonding/ juxtapositioning of two opposite fabrics also emerge in new ways in the collection, blending the idea of using ancient skill ,elements or materials to create something that feels new.
