Payal Pratap show at AIFW SS18
    October 23, 2017


    The muse is a carefree spirit, a nature lover, independent, a gentle non-conformist without being a rebel. She creates her own dreamscape. She takes time to reflect on life. Is quietly questioning, thoughtful; always internalising. Has her own definitive mind-space but she is open and constantly evolving. She seeks her energy from the things she surrounds herself with. Is conscious of the effect of her choices and lives responsibly.

    Her colour palette for summer is a fresh field of flowers, petal pink, indigo blue, sunshine yellow and muted ivory. Vibrant, fragrant, clean and youthful. The mood is botanical, organic and natural. The silhouettes are comfortable and gives a lived-in feel blending the unexpected together and carry it off without fuss. Her look is not about conspicuous consumption or sign-boarding.

    Fabric choices this season comprise handloom cotton khadi and handloom linens. Handwoven stripes, checks and borders with selvedge details have been combined with botanical prints. Set within the backdrop of a tea stained ramp dotted with terrariums, the collection plays with asymmetric hemlines, gathered maxi dresses, loose A line coats and jackets, summer dresses. The collection is accessorised with handmade leather colour -blocked sandals and water droplet ear pieces. Playful appliques and hand embroidered motifs, crochet and bead detailing lend a crafted look to the ensembles.
