Femininity with a bite… This is how Prabal Gurung describes the shapes he intends to create for meeting the needs of his customers. According to him, this variety of luxurious with minimalistically chic and also casual wear are just what ladies need most for their best looks. So that’s what has been interpreted with the language of fashion in the impressive Prabal Gurung pre-fall 2014 collection. The strictly feminine and classic designs are followed with some modernized and impressive options, which sometimes are observed in a single combo with each other, too.
The looks thus start with some crisp and timelessly feminine options, featuring such looks as a combo of a black blazer with straight black pants, which are matched with a bow collar chic white shirt or a combo of a black outerwear option with a turtleneck sweatshirt. The other looks on the other hand appear to be more vivacious and energetic, like it is in case of the pair with light blue sleeveless top with very curious drapings, the ruffled blue with white semitransparent variant matched with black pants having a white detail as a thick belt, the all-black knee length dress adorned with some chiffon transparency plays and curious flutter details, the minimalistic white with blue versions for dresses, as well as the spectacular color combos, introduced with a variety of color plays and patterns, like stripes and checks. The latter are used with top and skirt combos, as well as with some jackets and dresses, too.
The most striking looks of the Prabal Gurung pre-fall 2014 collection, however, are introduced later, when we see the super stunning black and white floor length dress having a peculiar turtleneck shape, the white with transparent checks in case of skirts, tops, and dresses, especially with white shades, the sweet pink knee length asymmetrical dress, the extravagant variations of pink with some super big ruffled details on the black background for the top, matched with sweet pink straight pants, similar designs with all-blue dress alternatives, as well as some fringed details for tee dresses of knee length for red and blue shades.
The herringbone pattern applied to glowy silver shades for dresses, tops, and skirts, is another noteworthy aspect of the Prabal Gurung pre-fall 2014 collection. So are the final huge floral prints applied to awe-inspiring mini and floor length dresses, concluded with the signature piece of Prabal Gurung, the full floor length dress of pink, blue, and black shades, a bald V-neck and a white belt at the waist to finish with.
