Pertaining to her philosophy of maximal impact with minimal details, and experimenting with Indian styles for distinct global aesthetics, designer Payal Singhal launched her latest collection ‘Kismet’ on Day 4 of the FDCI x LFW phygital showcase. With this, Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty was the showstopper for the designer.
The collection comprised of kurta-jogger sets, and coordinates, along with slinky dhoti saris, cropped-top jogger saris and balloon lehengas, with tops and flowing dupattas.
There is an evident play with colours and patterns, extensive use of the digital evil eye-inspired ikats; quirky mosaic patterns alongside the classic florals. Pitta kora work, intricate cut Dana, along with thread and wool embroidery and tassels highlighted the details.

Singhal said, “It’s impossible to ignore the times we are living in when designing a collection now. We’ve spent the past year in kaftans and loungewear, they have become wardrobe essentials! The DNA of the brand has always been to revisit Indian silhouettes with a global mindset so that they are not limited by season or occasions, but instead are all-encompassing with a focus on comfort.”
“The next wave of clothing is all about minimal maximalism—which means that even when dressed to the nines, there will be a need for ease in silhouettes and fabrics. This collection is a unique take on Indian wear merged with loungewear that I’ve never done before. It is also heavily inspired by how I dress — I don’t have separate Indian and western wear wardrobes. My personal style is all about making transitional pieces work together no matter the occasion,” she concluded.
