KGL, also known as Kanika Goyal Label, is a fashion brand that caters to the youthful and carefree generation. The designer, Kanika Goyal, is an Indian-based fashion designer who designs for those who crave self-expression and creativity. She inspires to normalize gender neutrality through her tailored and trending designs.
For the S/S 24 show at this season’s NYFW, KGL came out with a new collection named Aether Leak, which, according to the brand, “delves into the intriguing space between the tangible and the intangible, where the concepts of the infinite, otherworldly dimensions converge with the earthly transitions. Envision a cosmic dance-off where the familiar mingles with the mystical. The collection draws its creative impetus from the interplay of light and shadow, the hazy realms of the unknown, and the transcendental link between gods and mortals.”
Aether Leak consisted of many youthful designs, such as denim looks, blazers, suits, dresses, and much more. The color palette of this collection had seamless transitions from earth tones, muted hues, bright and neon, to neutrals. This collection also featured motifs like flowers, spots, and even sceneries like clouds. In addition, the designer included many prints in this season’s line, such as checkered plaids and stripes, while combining them with neutral and cool looks.
The brand fulfilled its purpose of designing for gender neutrality as both men and women came down the runway in her designs, where women were wearing oversized suits from head to toe, while men were seen showing their skin with opened blazers. Also, KGL’s collections are usually based on the current Zeitgeist, so this season’s collection was very relaxed and modern and lived up to the standards of Generation Z.
