The PayalSinghal Summer Resort 2015 collection was beautifully curated - nuanced with lehengas with box pleats. We most definitely loved her colour palette of subtle hues that included blush pink and greys. We just can't deny the way she subtly worked in the trapeze silhouette on the sleeves without moving into the 70's space.
Another interesting detailing was the way she worked in mirror work on net, giving us the impression of cut work, interesting triangle formation out of square shaped mirrors… so beautiful and neatly finished.
We also really liked the draped bottoms in silk, and the lovely fringe waistcoat, so rich looking. The collection does justice to our ideas of Indo Western especially for us who rarely go down the very traditional route of Indian wear.
NishkaLulla's collection instantly teleported to London. As soon as the music came on and the beautiful sunny green landscape of a backdrop was up we had our eyes fixed on that runway. As the girls walked out in their shiny silver oxfords and big round sunnies we imagined we were at Hyde Park, sipping on them bellinis. Her cute umbrella motifs did not overwhelm.
As usual she titled toward her sheers, with a healthy mix of tulle and tissue. We actually enjoyed the way it was cohesively styled: sheer skirts with a nice overlay printed jacket and some breezy palazzo pants. Also in show were 3D floral appliqué embellishments not overpoweringly distracting, just nicely spread out on a few garments.
We also spotted some cut work pieces, guess our favourite was the high waisted pencil skirt and fitted crop top. Culottes, pleated high waisted shorts and her favourite knicker shorts all part of the show; the collection was seamlessly tailored and the finishing on the garments was exquisite. Her summer palette was filled with whites, pinks and pale powder blues. All the perfect ways to beat the heat stylishly.
If you've ever watched a Pankaj and Nidhi show you already know how badass amazing they are with their usage of prints. As usual and in a good way, it was a burst of colours with geometric and floral mix media of prints. Some sexy body con pencil dresses, high low hem lines, some layered with white shirts, midi dresses in mint, our fave piece was the tail coat inspired crop in mint and silver detailing - coveting and how!
Some of our other favourites were the perforated bomber jacket and shorts, culottes and shift dresses and gowns with 3 dimensional detailing.The collection began with a mad use of print and moved from colours like olives and blues, to greys and mints along with print. With bursts of bright pinks the details are to watch for!
