Payal Singhal has always researched in depth for her collections and this season, she was inspired by India’s first fashion export to the world, the ‘Chintz’ print, which came from the Coromandal Coast.
Aptly naming her collection ‘Excavations’ for the fashion week, Payal’s display of the lovely iconic Indian print was translated into deep tones of aqua, navy, teal, sienna, cranberry and coral, which she transferred onto luxurious crepes, silks and linens.
Known for her trendsetting silhouettes, Payal brought in deconstructed Indian shapes to highlight the beauty of her ensembles. Interesting entries were the racer-back choli teamed with crepe churidar-skirt and printed overlap panel, the chiffon dupatta draped sleeve for the kurta, the silk mul lehenga-sari, and navy linen embroidered ghagra-sharara pants and the silver ring embroidered cutout short dress, which offered several options to the stylish buyer.
For the showstopper Vani Kapoor, it was a cranberry red, gold and silver ring embroidered choli with matching churidar-lehenga and dupatta. Women who love practical, stylish creations will adore this collection by Payal Singhal.
