For pre-fall 2013, Prabal Gurung took on the challenge to gently alter the everyday staples women love to wear during their busy quests, by infusing the garments with a sense of ease and just the right amount of approachable edginess. Not particularly fashion forward, but still sophisticated and sharp looking, the resulting lineup would make any modern woman eager to get dressed up in the morning.
Gurung’s creative sparkle resonated with his native Nepal this season, but the pre-fall influences didn’t came strictly from the heavenly place. Baz Luhrmann’s iconic Romeo + Juliet version, alongside mid-nineties Versace and Versus ads, blended together only to create an amalgam of brisk inspiration.
Prabal Gurung’s flawless aesthetic reads comfort and glamour with the same easiness and that’s mainly why his numbers never lack of effortless appeal, despite the designer’s love for vibrant prints and bold colors. A lightweight metallic tweed with Mexican influences, a gray marled inspired print, together with a breathtaking selection of lily motifs touched by electric shades of turquoise, pink and green, added substance to the pre-fall concept, without drawing too far away from the easy silhouettes.
The a-line and sheath dresses and skirts, the perfectly tailored pants, gorgeous jackets and easy coats made for a remarkable collection, beautifully topped by a choice of striking red carpet ready gowns.
