Prabal Gurung

DARKNESS AND LIGHT

New York: The concept of Prabal Gurung’s Fall collection was clear enough to grasp, dark ensembles on dark-haired models gave way to colorful and finally all-white looks on light haired girls. Mirroring the duality of the human condition, Gurung paid tribute to both heaven and hell, breaking away from his typically glitzy lady-like aesthetic which has always veered much more on the side of the former. While certain looks could be perceived as complicated, with sheer insets, mirrored prints metallic fabrics and heavy embellishment all packing quite a punch, others were simple and pared down. The all black pieces offered expert tailoring and an exceptional use of material mixing, proving that Gurung is just as talented at the staples as he is at the showstoppers.   —Shannon Davenport
