New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 RTW: Prabal Gurung

New York's favorite, Prabal Gurung, debuted his latest collection for this upcoming Spring today at New York Fashion Week. Prabal is known for his classic New York style with a soft twist on the heaviness of New York's hard fashion exterior. With this collection, like several in Prabal Gurung's past, color plays a strong role in the direction of the collection's spirit. Some may recall his ever popular violet collection last year that received a great response from critics and the public alike. This collection seems to be attempting the same response but with scarlet as his color of choice.

Besides the popping of red, splattered throughout the collection, the colors and fabrications took on a dull and tired feeling (not necessarily in a bad way, but in a more old-fashioned and romantic way). The collection, at its core, is very "Prabal." For me, the standout pieces are the dresses that have a very delicate aesthetic but are streamlined in a variety of ways including color, cut, and focus put on certain areas.

 

For example, a silhouette one may not initially find flattering, is this black and white dress with a dropped waist. The skirt petals out with ease, offering itself as a variable to the very deliberate structure and positioning of the top, including the herringbone-like motif found at the center of some of the collection's pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The final look, easily the top look of the show, almost seemed to be a nod at Giambattista Valli and some of his feathered collections in the past. The dipped feathers and wide, flowing skirt section make the dress truly come alive and prove that Prabal Gurung knows a thing nor two about femininity. What are your thoughts on the collection?

 

Be sure to let the FWU team and me know! Also, don't forget to keep up with us on Twitter for more of New York Fashion Week wrapped up!
