Geometric glory

An intriguing mix of shapes, geometric lines, symmetry angles and asymmetry that seem to seamlessly come together has been the forte of Payal Khandwala. Showcasing at the poolside of St. Regis at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016, she showed her complete command over innovative garment construction, visible in the relaxed but strong and fierce silhouettes that had touches of masculine garment elements.
With white as the prime colour, she played with coral, cetrine, chartreuse blush mint and metallics. Using her favourite textiles – cotton, linen, airy silk organza, brocade and neoprene, she brought in expert perma pleating for added glamour.
White shirts and blouses appeared with the jewel coloured layered lungi, draped Greek inspired toga, long tunic pants and cropped pants.
One-shoulder tops, long kurtas, asymmetrical maxi, and cross-over micro-pleated tops were ideal for the summer heat. The flowing ultra flared brown skirt, long cowl shirt dress, wrap jumpsuit, pleated long cape and pant, willpower tunic, kaftans and colour blocked tents were a great fluid line. The final entries of pleated kurta, dual coloured tie-up gown and brocade skirt with a simple white shirt were a perfect end to a relaxed languid collection for the coming season.
The separates were layered creatively by Payal and highlighted with her new line of brass and leather jewellery along with handcrafted leather bags, clutches and wide leather belts that added to the drama of the collection.
