Architect and designer, Pinakin Patel’s launch into womenswear rethinks garments vis a vis the exterior space in which they would be worn. Think feather-light fabrics, off colour palette, and expert craftsmanship.
With easy-to-pair separates and less-is-more formal wear –it’s a big tick for the collection, against the dos of urban dressing.
Stock your daily wardrobe with silk blend palazzos, embellished blouses and tailored dresses. Those prepping for the soon-to-come wedding season do invest in one of Pinakin’s organza saris. The fluid lines, ethereal fabric and the simplicity of design make it heirloom-worthy. Brides who wish to keep it subtle can also go for a fine lace lehenga or a pearl-studded gown, in a washed-out pastel.
