Prabal Gurung: Ready-to-wear AW16
Prabal Gurung loves a polished girl. A girl in lace and ball gowns and fur and silk and chiffon. All that kind of stuff. He’s not really a fan of the down and dirty, denim or leathers or anything like that. That said, for Autumn/winter 2016 there was a slight feeling of the undone to Gurung’s clothes, microscopic buttons pulled open to reveal flashes of flesh at shoulders or hips, say. Something a little less than perfect to avoid everything feeling too clean and pristine. Add the palette dominated by Cruella shades of red, black and white, and the show had an edge.
