Payal presents ‘Taj’ Collection at Lakme week

PS SS2014 015-webMUMBAI: This season, Payal Singhal’s ‘Taj’ collection is inspired by the fine detailing and intricate patterns of filigree, jaali work and floral inlays seen in Islamic architecture.

The collection is influenced by the interplay between “swadeshi” dress codes and sartorial styles for women set in the backdrop of the extravagant lifestyle of colonial India. Payal Singhal has chosen to combine contemporary urban silhouettes, swadeshi home woven Indian textiles and exquisite fine design.

Silhouettes include silken Sufi falda pants worn with structured cholis, buttery mul saris with free-flowing kurtas. Short anarkali kurtas with voluminous salwars and asymmetric tunic-blouses with traditional saris in silks, katarva cottons and benarasi and mul silks.

he delicate detailing of the patterns are embellished with resham, silver and gold taar, pita kora and filigree or jaali work in trellis patterns.

Payal explains, “This collection represents an authentic summer bride that exudes elegance and tradition – her style statement though is experimental with an edge.”

Payal’s collection was showcased at Lakme Fashion Week on March 25.
