Payal Khandwala's summer edit Wild Flower is fierce yet feminine
The spring-summer edit of this young designer is a riot of bright colours
Designer Payal Khandwala's latest drop is all about the call of wildflowers -- a fierce yet ever feminine edit of stylish summer clothings.
"The central motif that inspires this season’s collection is the wildflower. Found in the most unexpected of places, these mostly overlooked blossoms take centre stage as they flourish in a riot of colours that usher in a breezy spring and the warmer summer months in my collection," tells Khandwala.
All the clothes are in bright hues of burnt orange, leaf green, canary yellow and ultraviolet, which are key in establishing a dramatic palette that pops up against neutral shades such as chestnut brown and ivory.
The bold print story, on light, breathable fabrics like handwoven cotton khadi, chanderi, linen and poplin are perfect for the coming months. They are teamed with the very popular and comfortable heat-set pleats in satin and georgette, for a wardrobe that is summer-ready.
Perhaps inadvertently, the wild flower is a nod to all the women who refuse to be tamed, to the ones comfortable even when out of place, to all the gentle non-conformists that grow wild and charm us with their disarming beauty in the most unpredictable ways," feels Khandwala.
