‘Forbidden Love’, is Payal Jains’ Spring Summer ’18 collection, an ode to Frida, the woman. The painter. The magical surrealist, the revolutionary, the lover, the lonely soul’ I have been inspired by her life and work for over a decade and she resides deep within my sub conscious Her vibrant usage of color, vivid interpretation of emotions, stark expression of pain, unfulfilled romance; physical and emotional trauma touches the deepest core of one’s heart. I feel like I have been drawn into the love. Life and struggles of Frida, as she lived half a century ago, says the designer.
The soul of this collection lies in its random, unexpected, bohemian aesthetic … This season’s look is an eclectic blend of organic fabrics, vivid colors, eccentric combinations, warm details, random weaves, bold checks, vibrant prints and experimental treatments, all of which co-exist in complete harmony.
