Payal Singhal's bohemian bride is the life of the party
The designer kicks off the first ever Tweak India X Kohler collaboration
“She’s freespirited, intelligent and has a mind of her own,” says Payal Singhal of the muse for her Tweak India X Kohler debut collaboration. The designer made a name for herself by putting wedding lehengas through a weight loss programme so that Indian brides could actually dance at their own weddings.
Her zesty prints can be spotted from a mile away, and have become synonymous with destination weddings whether you’re working on your tan in Thailand or acing the Instagram game in Istanbul.
Payal Singhal’s unique ability to dissect traditional Indian motifs and craftsmanship and reinvent them into internationally appealing prints is what first impressed the team at Kohler India.
Tasked with using their new Colours of India collection, the India Palette, she was immediately entranced by the colour Peacock, a cool blue-green merged with warm teal that gives the bath-space a vibrant look of the iconic Indian bird. “I love the motif of the peacock, it symbolises new India, modern India and I use it in a lot of my work,” she says, adding, “The synergy between Kohler’s classic yet modern sensibility really resonates with the Payal Singhal brand.”
“What we really want to do is make Indian clothes more contemporary and that’s what you see with Kohler too. It’s a classic, good quality product with a sleek edge.”
