New York Collections Women: Prabal Gurung AW13
Prabal Gurung had a strong military influence for his A/W13 collection. It was an army of chic, as models donned the masterfully tailored peplum blazers in moss green with gold details and leather harnesses. Prabal managed a harmonious mixture of the hard edge, soldier-inspired masculinity and feminine sex appeal. The collection never went down the route of fetish, which in all honesty would of been expected of a military inspired collection. It would not have been genuine for Prabal Gurung to steer too much towards the obscure as he is widely known for his ultra feminine cuts and his many red carpet moments. The skirts in the collection with a side slit allowed the collection to be sexy, dangerous and maintained the designers feminine aesthetic. A well put together collection from a designer stepping out of his comfort zone.
