Payal Singhal presents Qoshilish at Lakme Fashion Week Summer / Resort 2019
The collection is in partnership with Caprese Bags
Designer Payal Singhal has collaborated with handbags brand Caprese, to launch her latest collection ‘Qo’shilish’ at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019. Translating to ‘confluence’ in Uzbek, ‘Qo’shilish seeks to trace the Silk Route, beginning in Samarkand, Uzbekistan and ending in Benares. The collection takes inspiration from medieval-gothic European architecture and traditional and tribal Indian folk art.
Payal has also introduced new and experimental silhouettes such as Nizami shararas and short lean kurtas. Also expect contemporary saris and renaissance tops in fabrics such as crepe, velvet, georgette, silk, organza, brocade and tissue. The colour story is one that veers from moss green and periwinkle blue to ocean teal, dusty rose, sandstone and poster pink.
“The term ‘indo-western’ has become generic today, but it is actually a nuanced blend of influences from numerous countries and their cultures on Indian design sensibilities, honed over centuries. This has been highlighted throughout the Qo’shilish collection, where each technique and motif has a story to tell,” says Payal.
