Prabal Gurung's Spring 2014 collection has a mid-century look to it, with a tight figures accented by occasional flourishes. Pencil skirts with rose prints and shapes dominate here, although the most successful looks seem to be the first few exits of white.
The following press notes explains more about the collection:
The Spring 2014 collection celebrates the preservation of the elegant woman, who has always been a source of intrigue and inspiration for the designer, and presenting her in in a modern context. “I looked to abstract and modernize the concept of the idealized woman – one who is bold, colorful and sensual with a hint of danger,” Gurung said.
There is a consistent focus on technique, construction and fabric innovation, including laminated French laces and silks, crepe de chine bonded to cotton poplin and tweed woven with plastic. The sensual cuts and emphasis on décolletage call to mind a strong woman who is unafraid to celebrate her feminine being.
