Prabal Gurung SS12
To set you up for the love fest that is about to begin, I will start by telling you that Prabal Gurung designed a collection for Spring/Summer 2012 that was so incredible I was grabbing my chest as I shoved runway photos under my (completely uninterested) Significant Other’s nose. For a good thirty minutes.

Where do I start?

With a collection where purple, teal, and black ruled the palette, the variety was astounding. Gurung sourced photographs titled “Sensual Flowers” by Japanese artist Nobuyoshi Araki and turned them into the most beautiful, intricate prints.

Every piece felt special; spectacular red-carpet stealing dresses, sheer asymmetrical panels, handkerchief hemlines, rubber paillettes, exploding tulle, leather harnesses, ostrich feathers, digital print floral georgette dresses, cigarette pants, laser-cut leather shorts, printed blouses, latex coats – and none without the most exquisite attention to detail. He even styled in his Prabal Gurung for Nicholas Kirkwood heels and Prabal Gurung for Linda Farrow Projects sunglasses.

I cannot believe this is only his sixth collection. Prabal Gurung is the future of fashion. View Post

Prabal Gurung Fall Winter 2011
Prabal Gurung was the show covered in multi-coloured highlighters and gold stars for my Fall/Winter 2011 agenda. For a reason. The model lineup alone was spectacular – Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Liu Wen, Mirte Mass, Jourdan Dunn, Constance Jablonski, etc. Gurung is one of the dexterous few that can match eccentricity and elegance. By washing silk faille, dip-dyeing fur, braiding organza, and throwing ostrich feathers where it counted, the collection was ‘personality‘ defined. Take a note from Prabal if you’re looking to work some prestigious comfort. See the top five looks below. View Post
