Payal crafts elegance with 'A Perfect Fit' at LFW
20
Mar '14
Aimed at the bold uninhabited sensuous elegant woman, Payal Khandwala’s collection called “A Perfect Fit” was totally apt for the Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 season.
 
Drawing inspiration from men’s wear, the creations had feminine elements but keeping them in the neutral category. 
 
Silhouettes were soft and fluid emphasised with perfect proportions. Adding geometric draping and pleating, the focal point was the architecture of the garment.
 
With natural fabrics as the central choice, there was cotton and luxurious silks that swayed easily with the body allowing a relaxed movement. 
 
Creating hand woven textiles and rich saris with master craftsmen of Bengal, Payal ensured that there was exclusivity in her creations.
 
White was the colour that remained in the forefront of the collections, while other shades like deep blue, turquoise, magenta, orange, sun yellow, red and maroon added a colourful medley. 
 
With the white shirt as a constant in the collection, Payal teamed it with saris; super wide pleated palazzos and crinkle wrap skirt. Keeping the silhouettes very Zen-like as always, with samurai pants appearing occasionally; Payal added shirt waister dress, asymmetric tunics, jackets, crinkle wrap skirts, shirts with off-centre openings  and drop-shoulder tops. 
 
Saris although stark in their design and beauty, were offered by Payal in multi-coloured jewel tones of colour blocking, which will appeal to the ethnic dresser. 
 
When women long for “A Perfect Fit”, then Payal Khandwala had all the right requirements and styles.
