For the Parisian brand, Louise Misha, fall is all about boho-chic. The Fall/Winter 2018 Collection is inspired by the changing seasons in Eastern Europe and brings together layers of embroidery, delicate patterns, and silky soft fabrics.
BIRTH OF A BRAND
While on vacation in India, two Parisian friends were inspired to start their own prêt-à-porter and accessories line for babies, little girls, and women. Louise Misha was born. Marie Pidancet and Aurélie Remetter named their company Louise Misha in honour of two strong women in their families, a grandmother named 'Louise' and a mother with the last name 'Misha'.
The Louise Misha universe is all about bohemian style, nostalgia and softness. This season's collection is no exception. The colours are straight from a Pre-Raphaelite painting. The earthy textures of linen, cotton, and shearling, as well as the lacey ruffles and floral embroidery perfectly capture the nomadic spirit of the brand.

Here are 5 essential pieces to capture the Beautiful Boho style:
