I saw the Payal Khandwala Collection Autumn/Winter 2017 on Not Just A Label (NJAL) a week or two back and was struck by both the deliciously elegant crossover styling and the glorious fabrics and colours.
From the designer’s statement on NJAL;
… clothing for women that care more about personal style than fashion… The idea has always been, to pen a vocabulary that is relevant now and one that can become a reference for the future. The hope is that the clothes we propose will transcend seasons because the language is distinct, and the signature authentic … ageless.
Which … allows us to slow fashion just a little bit.
If we can suggest clothes that are pertinent now and in the future then we can wear them for longer, as staples, and team them with what we already have in our closets. This way we can have our wardrobes evolve seamlessly.
We must repeat, reuse, and rewear … buy less but buy better, to wear with care and for longer, to reduce how much we waste and reconsider how we shop.
All the hand woven silks, linens and brocades are crafted by our artisans in Bhagalpur, West Bengal and Benaras.
Our label is deeply rooted in an aesthetic that is Indian, but its spirit rises above our obvious cultural trappings …
Beautiful worn wherever you are in the world 🖤
