8th July 2021, India: asa, India’s first luxury clean beauty brand with products that are more than 92% natural, vegan, refillable and sustainable has collaborated as a beauty partner with renowned Couture designer, Rahul Mishra, for his Couture Fall 2021/2022 collection- ‘The Shape of Air’ at Paris Haute Couture Week on 7th July 2021.
With a vision to create a world of conscious consumerism and lead the well-informed global Indian woman to choose a purposeful life, asa is moving in the right direction of ‘Clean Awakening’.
The brand is not just careful about the ingredients that go into their products, but also focuses on how they are formulated, packaged, shipped and eventually how they can be absorbed back into the environment which circles back to the thought process and ideology imbibed by fashion designer, Rahul Mishra.
This collection showcased by Rahul Mishra renders artistic expression in couture. A recollection of the overall experience, of how a physical space is perceived by the eyes and felt by a soul.
Five elements, all containing, form a physical space when combined together in right proportions—earth, water, fire, air and space.
The city of Santorini, Greece is used as inspiration. Intricate details rendered in hand embroidery—hand cut and individually tacked on the bright hued, ombre surfaces. Pinched, gathered and sheered lengths of tulle representing air and water in their different interpretations gives volume and movement to the otherwise sculptural silhouettes.
Some of the other applications include dramatic draping of sheer fabric, so as to create a fluid bubble around the garments.
The products used included shades of pressed Powder Foundations, Easy-Blend Concealers, Finishing Powder, Cream Correctors and Luminising Powder.
For the lips, the range consisted of Hydra Matte lipsticks, Crème Lipsticks, Lip & Cheek Tint and the Everyday Mascara for the eyes.
Paying homage to Rahul Mishra’s inspiring collection, asa beauty is extending their offerings with the launch of a new eyeliner range and also some extension shades of the top selling Easy-Blend concealers, powder foundation and the Cult favourite lip & Cheek Tints.
Commenting on the association, Founder Asha Jindal Khaitan said, “We completely resonate with Rahul Mishra’s commitment to creating a brand that is conscious about its impact on its ecosystem.
Rahul’s nature-inspired work showcasing Indian artisans, wins our heart as the asa range is more than 92% Natural and also exclusively created for the global Indian.
To have joined hands for this digital show with Rahul and give a little sneak-peak of our upcoming products is a matter of pride for us at asa. The amalgamation of two different industries, merging into one, for a cause they believe in, is beautiful!”
