KGL Spring/Summer ’24 Lit Up NYFW Runway
On September 10th, 2023, Kanika Goyal Label (KGL) blended fashion and inspiration on the New York Fashion Week runway. With original designs full of bold textures and colors, KGL’s extreme creativity made this runway show thrilling to the eye. Focused on celebrating self-expression, the brand intends to dismantle the fixed perception of gender stereotypes.
Based in Delhi, India, the brand’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection entitled “Aether Leak” played with intersecting lines, whimsical patterns, and color blocking. KGL focuses on finding its identity through finding the “principle of paradox,” as stated by their press release covering the runway show. Fantastical and familiar, this collection drew inspiration from light and shadow.
What the Brand Has to Say
“The color palette gracefully transitioned from the brief haze of dusty pastels to the deep, mysterious shades of the universe, ranging from muted hues to iridescent, infinite shades that mirror the transition from earthly haziness to the clarity of divine domains. Bonded knits, taffeta, and denim fabrics echoed cosmic grains and the passing softness of clouds inviting wearers to traverse the boundary between tangible and celestial. The motifs represent the fleeting moments, the potential for transformation, and the delicate interplay between chaos and order. ‘Aether Leak’ employs gradient techniques to evoke the illusion of shifting dimensions. Airy materials drape like a celestial mist, allowing wearers to embody the nebulous beauty of distant realms. Structured garments incorporate metallic embellishments, emulating the luminous dust particles suspended in the realms of creation,” reads KGL’s press release.
Intricate Shapes and Bold Colors
This look in particular highlights everything KGL stands for: vibrant colors coupled with familiar fabrics creates a look that is eye-catching to say the least. Featuring a black-washed denim skirt set, Birkenstock-like sandals, and an iconic jacket resting on the model’s shoulders, this Ready to Wear look is striking. One may not think that peach, forest green, orange, and black can live in harmony, but they are completely cohesive in this outfit.
