Designer Rimi Nayak has quite literally taken to the paintbrush for her new collection Colour Me Your Kind. The colours in a rainbow are represented with texturing and fabric manipulation to mirror the effect of painting techniques such as marbling and colourplay. Vivid azure blues, muted reds and chrome yellows make a colour story that is bright and yet pleasant enough for the summer. The silhouette is relaxed, with Nayak’s trademark draped and pleated dresses.
The juxtaposition of the clothes in a gallery space is deliberate. Nayak’s collection revolves around the story of a woman who heals her emotional wounds by pouring out her feelings in the form of colours on a canvas, blurring the lines between fashion and art.
