When it comes to translating the environs onto extraordinary silhouettes, Payal Pratap has been a forerunner. As evident from her latest showcase at the LMIFW, she appears to have written a love letter to the tropical forests and the verdant silence they encompass- the changing scents, colours and sounds of the forest from dawn to dusk.
An overruling colour palette of forest greens, vintage pinks, wild mustards, coffee bean browns and pigment blues interspersed with fern and foliage prints, water colour hand painted ivy prints, vintage twig and branch prints injected on handloom linen cotton and khadi sufficed her sustainable collection. Silhouette-wise the collection touted overlays and sheers, summer jackets, peplum jackets, mix and match of checks and stripes, zouave jumpsuits, asymmetric hems and plackets, maxi dresses, patchwork plays, pleats and peplums – artfully trimmed with soft and bold embroideries, tie dye ribbon and tape embroideries, cut work and scalloping at hems and edges.
Details were the name of the game- strokes of emerald teals on the eyes with nattily filled in brows, a nude lip and waves of hair swept to one side and tied back at the nape, secured with a bunch of emerald hair pins at the forehead. Oversized hoops dangling from one ear added a touch of audacity to the collection while peep-toe shoes crafted from soft leather lent finesse. In conclusion, her spring-summer collection was what a tropical maven’s dreams are made of!
