The Indian bespoke shirt maker Bombay Shirt Company (BSC) has launched its debut womenswear collection in collaboration with fusionwear designer Payal Singhal (PS).

Replete with boxy silhouettes and detailing on buttons, collars, plackets and cuffs, the range features an assortment of rolled up and long sleeved shirts in Egyptian cotton and linen that can easily transition from day to evening.

Suitable to wear both to work or leisure time activities, the new limited edition capsule line is enhanced with geometrical, chevron, stripes, checks and ditsy dots and prints in a pastel palette of sky blue, blush pink, grey and white hues.

Commenting on the collection and the design process, Payal Singhal said in a media statement, “I'm very excited about my collaboration with Bombay Shirt Company mainly because I personally love the brand and always shop from them. Also, this was an exciting opportunity to see what we could do together as a brand in keeping with both the PS and BSC brand aesthetic.”

Akshay Narvekar, founder of BSC, said, “The idea behind this initiative is to have various creative personalities display their unique take on fashion and styling. We are thrilled to present our women customers a chance to wear special pieces designed by Payal Singhal herself.”

Proceeds from the sale of the collection, currently available only at the shirt maker’s website and Mumbai flagship, will be donated to NGO ‘Akanksha’, which is aimed at providing children from low-income backgrounds with a high-quality education.

“I'm also really happy that BSC will be donating a percentage of the proceeds from this collection to ‘Akanksha’ as I really admire their dedicated work for children and their education,” said Payal.

Payal Singhal is the first designer to become part of BSC’s ongoing initiative to create custom, limited edition capsule collections in association with some of Mumbai’s most stylish and influential tastemakers across various creative walks of life. (PB)
