SPRING 2013 READY-TO-WEAR Prabal Gurung

The outfit will appeal to women looking for a cool alternative to black tie. It was also nice to see Gurung get more familiar with his casual side. The T-shirt emblazoned with a bird’s wing that topped a full-to-the-knee skirt had an everyday vibe that he should continue to develop. Sporty separates like contrast-trim tanks and loose, easy pants were also winning.

But Gurung might need a bigger reset than a virtual trip home. Too often you saw reminders on his runway of collections you’ve witnessed before. Other times, dresses would’ve benefited from a lighter hand. The Kapoor-influenced spine print combined with red and white ostrich feathers and a smattering of crystals was rather more lurid than we’re guessing he intended. We know that Gurung is capable of more restrained elegance; the tailoring at the beginning of the show is proof.
