Introducing Pinakin Patel’s New Spring Summer 2016 Collection

Pinakin Patel’s thorough understanding of Indian heritage, free spirited creativity and modern sensibilities provided the impetus for brand Pinakin. The brand’s journey began with creating India’s first lifestyle and furniture store, followed by the establishment of Mumbai’s premier interior design and architecture firm – Pinakin Design LLP.

Today, his free spirited creativity, modern sensibilities, and aesthetics rooted in Indian heritage have reached new highs and have forayed into the world of fashion.

After the launch of his debut collection, designer Pinakin Patel has now created a new line for this Spring Summer 16. The collection is European in sensibility and Indian in soul. Hues of pink, white, indigo, neon and red are seen throughout  making it apt for summer.

For over four decades, he  has set the benchmark in creating spaces and furniture that distinctly reflect his own unique sensibility. Using his interest in fashion and styling, Pinakin has launched a nouveau line for this season.

The setting for the preview was wonderful. A tunnel made of twigs,blue bulbs and cherry blossoms led to the main exhibition area. Wooden ladders with floral arrangement were placed as racks for displaying garments. Loved the detail and effort Maheka and her team put in.

I particularly loved the off shoulder tie-dye dresses and the mini skirts.

Fun drinks and finger food complemented this lovely showcase.
