Caprese – the perfect handbag accessory for every occasion during Summer/Resort 2019
Mumbai, February 02, 2019: Caprese, the stylish arm candy brand, presented Payal Singhal’s glamorous collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019. Inspired by a pristine little island off the Italian shores, Caprese’s world of fashion truly reflects the design language of its muse: The Isle of Capri. A country that has, for centuries, been synonymous with the future of women’s fashion, echoing with an unblemished, free spirit.
With a confident aesthetic sense, sleek cuts and an indulgent voice to suit any occasion – Caprese’s every design is crafted as a style testament to every woman who wishes to announce her arrival in life.
Sudip Ghose, CEO VIP Industries Ltd, said, “Caprese brand is dedicated to bringing international high-fashion handbags and accessories to Indian women and this collection from Caprese has been designed to appeal to every modern Indian woman who deserves the best of everything in life.”
Designer Payal Singhal said, “The term ‘Indo-western’ has become generic today, but it is actually a nuanced blend of influences from numerous countries and their cultures on Indian design sensibilities, honed over centuries. This has been highlighted throughout the “Qo’shillish” collection, where each technique and motif has a story to tell.”
Caprese’s latest designs of handbags and accessories are crafted with luxe hand-feel, intricate detailing, and a sophisticated color palette, with shades of dusty pink, taupe, forest green, powder blue, gold and quintessential tan, suitable for every occasion.
The collection beautifully merged the designer’s transcontinental inspirations with Caprese’s modern contemporary sensibility and sophisticated hardware accents to create an appeal that would make a statement of classic fashion anywhere in the world.

PAYAL SINGHAL PRESENTED HER STYLISH CONFLUENCE OF FASHION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2019
Art, tradition, heritage and global history have been constant inspirations for designer Payal Singhal and for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019, her collection called ‘Qo’shillish’ (meaning Confluence in Uzbek) was a grand merger of various cultures and influences. Payal’s clever amalgamation of Indian folk art with transcontinental technics and crafts appeared to be a “Renaissance meets Mughal Art” story.
The designer set her sights first on the beauty of mid-European art then moved to the Indian shores and the result was a sophisticated dramatic line on the ramp. The beautiful art forms of Pietre Dura, Parllin Kari, Malileh Kari, Tilla Doza and the popular zardosi were cleverly and painstakingly embellished on the garments in a contemporary form.
Always experimenting with innovative oriental silhouettes that have become the leitmotif of her many collections, this season Payal introduced voluminous Nizami shararas then brought in lean short kurtis and caused excitement when experiments with the modern saris and renaissance tops appeared on the ramp.
Opening the show with a lehenga and a tie-up blouse, Payal moved the creations to curved asymmetric kurtas, one-sleeved slim maxi gypsy blouse with low crotch pants sporting attached dupatta and then, brought in a sari with frilled pallav and skirt. The scalloped hemline of the lehenga added a feisty touch while the tasseled pallav or dupattas were feminine offerings.
Silhouettes were comfortable with loose, bias cut or boxy blouses for saris. Some intricate gold cutwork boleros and cholis brought the inspiration to the forefront but the kaftans that glittered down the ramp were ideal formal wear.
Fabrics have always played an important role in Payal’s ensembles. This season she once again favored crêpe, velvet, georgette, silk organza, brocade, and tissue. Her colors have been quite mellow over the years so the collection vibrated between moss green, periwinkle blue, ocean teal, dusty rose, sandstone, and poster pink.
Stopping the show was the lovely Mouni Roy who glided down the ramp in a heavily embellished lehenga choli and dupatta trio.
When it comes to the perfect fusion of Indo-western ensembles, Payal Singhal’s “Qo’shillish” collection proved that she is the master in that genre.
