Payal Khandwala Brings The Sunny Side Up At The Pool With Her Collection ‘Tachi’ At Lakme Fashion Week Summer Spring 2016

Summer is here and what better than the pool side of the St. Regis Mumbai to showcase a beautiful Spring Summer’16 collection by designer Payal Khandwala at the Lakme Fashion Week.

The geometric inspired range showcased the simplicity and complexity of shapes with an evocative play of negative and positive spaces. The use of minimal flat shapes transformed into a three dimensional forms. Repeats, lines, symmetry, asymmetry and angles echoed across the outfits, creating interesting silhouettes with hand-woven artisanal details and tailoring focused on circles, triangles and the often forgotten parallelogram.
