In theory, a collection that infuses Nepalese prints with a futuristic edge should be a disaster. In the oh-so-skillful hands of Prabal Gurung, it’s nothing short of magnificent. Clean lines, sleek silhouettes and luxe jersey fabrics give intricate prints an air of elegant effortlessness. As you know, I’m a sucker for colour so Prabal’s kaleiedescopic palette which spans every conceivable shade from bright turquoise and candy pink through to apple green and sultry purple is right up my street. Delicate floral motifs sit alongside modern metallics and high shine silks while slinky floor-sweeping Goddess gowns are given a 2013 makeover with leather harness detailing. Prabal’s inspired juxtposition of exquisitely embellished evening confections and louche day dressing makes this the kind of collection that oozes fashion cool while still being pretty enough to illicit squeals from girly girls (i.e me) everywhere… In other words, it’s genius.
Try as I might, I just can’t decide on a favourite look! Sculptural silver, floral applique or pretty-as-a-picture pink printed silk… Which one would YOU pick?
Love Ella. X
