Tactile allure from Prabal Gurung as he presents a comfortable and sensual collection
Join us to take a close up look at the Prabal Gurung presentation from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. We show you the latest creations for the fall 2015 season and speak exclusively to the designer about his inspiration and concept.
Gurung believes that sensuality comes with ease and comfort, and whether that comes from the cut of a dress or just being comfortable in your own skin, this is the kind of woman he is designing for. He chose to use models of a variety of ages to showcase the collection which in turn appeals to all women. The subdued hues and multitude of tactile fabrics give the subtle sensuality rather than anything overtly sexy, although there were some daring high splits in skirts and some small cut away sheer sections there was a distinctly refined and sophisticated style. The furs, knits and textures adding even more allure and glamor.
The designer was inspired by a trip to the Adirondacks, and paid special attention to the muted color palette he saw there along with the strong influence of the Fair Isle sweater which he deconstructed and then used the pattern and motifs in furs, knits and evening wear. Other garments included luxe fur trimmed parkas, trouser suits, leather skirts and shimmering gowns.
