A collaboration by House of Waris RARE for Net-A-Porter

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Waris Ahluwalla years ago when he was selling his collection of jewels at Colette. The actor/designer is strongly influenced by the romance and history of ancient kingdoms. House of Waris is about telling stories through materials and craftmanship. 

The RARE collection available exclusively on net-a-porter brings together independent artisans and historic brands from over 14 countries including Italy, Turkey, Brazil, Morocco, India, rance, the US and UK. Ahluwalla worked with the selected artists to create the collection.
