Indian designer Rahul Mishra, the 2014 International Woolmark Prize winner, has launched his highly anticipated capsule collection in David Jones today, alongside the department store’s ambassador Jessica Gomes.

The six-piece range, made from lightweight merino wool and featuring hand-embroidered graphic designs, was selected from the same award-winning collection shown to the International Woolmark Prize judges in Milan, Italy earlier this year.

The capsule collection will be sold exclusively through David Jones’ Sydney CBD store. The department store didn’t have much luck with last year’s winner, Belgian designer Christian Wijnants, and the label was dropped after only its first season, but we think Rahul’s delicate handcrafts and modernised traditional techniques will be an easy win.
