Mumbai, Aug 22 (IBNS):  Designer Payal Singhal's collection “Gypsies and Bohemia” showcased at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 was proof why she is a much sought after couturier at home and abroad.

Creating a bohemian Turkish and Moroccan bazaar set on the ramp with Turkish carpets hung above and the mosaic patterned ramp below, the show opened with colours, zest and feisty flavour.

Drawing her creative ideas from folklore, especially the Islamic architecture and the colours of bazaars in Turkey and Morocco as well as the 10th century gypsy vagabonds; the total mood of the collection was for the free-spirited millennial wanderers.

Payal’s fabrics have always told a rich story with georgette, bits of velvet and organza; while the colours have been adventurous.

From neutral white and ecru, the palette moved to periwinkle blue, pale rose and pops of neon with black.

The Payal Singhal collection was a study in embellishments, when thread work, cutwork jaalis, leather embroidery, frayed tassels, which were the leitmotif of the collection; appliqués, patchwork, pom-poms and 3D textures formed the highlights on the garments.

Her signature prints came in the form of hand painted blossoms and ikat.

She offered jacket-cholis, lehenga-salwars, bomber jackets and deconstructed blazers along with her famed drop crotch pants, cropped skirts, saris and coordinated sets to cater to an international clientele.

Creating a fashionable impact were the panelled, tasselled skirt/blouse duo, sheer skirt over slim printed pants, kaftans, flared blouse with bell-sleeves, the black long- sleeved, transparent, lean tube over skinny trousers with bralette and the tasselled blouse/bustier.

The solitary sari too had a bohemian flavour with its tasselled edges.

Cropped pants and the embroidered hip length, drop waist kurtas, jumpsuit with side tassels, mini coat dress with intense embellishments and the extreme textured, long skirts in ombré and multi coloured ruffles drew accolades from the spectators.

To complete the “Gypsies and Bohemia” look she added totes, fanny packs, belt bags and wristlets.

Singhal's men’s wear matched the theme with printed kurtas - some with side drawstrings - bundies, skinny trousers and churidars.

Her showstoppers included one of Bollywood’s favourite couples, Shibani Dandekar (who is Payal’s favourite muse) and her beau the very handsome Farhan Akhtar.

The pair looked ultra-stylish in coordinated ecru creations. Shibani looked dazzling in a georgette lehenga and choli topped with a tasselled, 3D embellished cropped blouse; while Farhan looked totally dashing in a printed kurta, churidars and dupatta. 

The ensembles were splashed with exciting neon wool, floral zardosi work as Shibani and Farhan strutted down the catwalk in perfect unison.

Payal Singhal’s celebratory 20th anniversary collection had strong versatile vibes that emphasised the profile of the range, which will move effortlessly from Indian soirées to international Red-Carpet nights or destination weddings.

Lakmé Official Makeup Expert at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019, Daniel Bauer for the Payal Singhal show kept the entire look bronze and matte with heavy mascara and bold brows framing the eyes.

A matte orange blush to add colour to the face, the look was completed with the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade Coral Kiss.

Even the male models were seen sporting a bold orange blush with a nude lip.
