ICB by Prabal Gurung Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

Summer, fun and fashionable are the best synonyms for the ICB by Prabal Gurung spring/summer 2014 collection cast at New York Fashion Week. The sister line of Prabal Gurung comes like a breath of fresh spring air, so youthful and wearable that every fashioniser is sure to instantly fall in love with these pieces! For his spring line, the designer was inspired from a girl, who is “Fashionable, not fashion victim,” and this is well expressed in every little bit of the garments showcased.

ICB by Prabal Gurung Spring/Summer 2014 RTW - New York Fashion WeekThe show at ICB started with the monotone interpretations of white sateen used in case of several outfits like dresses and shorts-top pairs. The latter were created in the silhouettes of short tops carrying some kimono sleeves resemblances paired with loose carrot-shaped pants. The jackets were other accompanying elements of the line, basically created in cocoon shapes.

One more peculiarity of the ICB by Prabal Gurung spring/summer 2014 collection is the simplicity and the cool look created with the help of the curious effect of the sateen fabric used to make the garments. Furthermore, silver plays go on with the show introduced within wool motives. Following these, the navy blue themes, firstly introduced within abstract prints take the rule of the line. Here the cute and cool jackets with youthful, non-standard and fuzzy prints are worth mentioning.

After this, the long-awaited black and white duets come, pictured as shirt top-shorts pairs. Finally, there come the brighter tones shining on egg-shaped dresses with a wide variety of shapes: from scoop to V-necks. The ICB by Prabal Gurung spring/summer 2014 collection would lose a lot of chic if it weren’t for the shiny green-white graphic blends of the garments coming up next. Here the cute halter motives used in one of the dresses is quite noticeable. The green theme later expands reaching top-pants pairs, the top being created according to jacket resemblance.

The show is then continued by some calm blue overtone-designed garments, which soon offer their place to abstractly designed details added on pastel-colored egg-shape dresses.

Taking a more attentive look at those spangles, you feel as if you’re looking at an abstract painting of cubism art and try to find some resemblances of theirs with the objects you’ve seen. Maybe those are wings flying over a megalopolis or just a stony road leading to nowhere? Who knows? The most important thing is that the easy-deezy effect of the collection, desired by Gurung, is absolutely and successfully reached. Way to go ICB!
