Prabal Gurung Spring 2011


“I wanted to make clothes that look easy, but are impossible to make” – Prabal Gurung.  Well he certainly got that right.  This is deconstructed elegance at its best.  His use of sheer translucence was pitch perfect with peekaboo edges and unexpected placement.  The silhouettes are sleek and body-skimming without adhering to the lines of the body.  The shredded fabric atop nearly invisible opaque layers were a touch of brilliance.  It was a vision of effortlessness yet careful construction.  Skirts made of shredded tiered fabric reinvented a classic shape.  The carefully distressed edges to blazers and skirts added a bit of naturalness to a futuristic collection.  Also, prevented things from looking too perfect.  Translucent paneling added interest to an A-line skirt.

Moreover, white makeup boosted the already futuristic feel to Prabal’s collection.  The models looks positively angelic as they glided past.  It was the the only makeup on an otherwise clean face.  Prabal made sure to enhance the clean feel by leaving off jewelry.  Instead, the major accessories were the edgy Nicholas Kirkwood-designed heels.  Neon or neutral, they were icing on the cake of a stellar collection.
