Prabal Gurung Fall 2012

After the Prabal Gurung Fall 2012 presentation yesterday afternoon, I’m sure his phone was ringing off the hook as celebrity stylists would’ve been dying to get first dibs on many looks for their clients.

The designer started with black and electric blue edgy looks with a fetish vibe on dark haired models and ended with blonde models wearing angelic gold and white ensembles accented with chiffon ruffles, sequins and feathers.

We saw mostly form fitting silhouettes which ranged from sporty to sleek gowns.

I loved the return of the futuristic psychedelic prints from the Spring 2012, the introduction to oil-spill foil-printed neoprene, which was moulded to several key looks and the bold, sculptured cuts.

Luxe fur coats, black shimmering suits, fitted pants, bustier dresses with a cape back and cashmere jackets were presented alongside a finale of gorgeous gowns.

Joan Smalls’ black tulle gown with jet beads and onyx crystals was the jewel in the crown, but the ivory tulle gown with ostrich feathers which closed the show also made you crane your neck to get a closer look.

Key accessories included Agnelle leather gloves, Fenton jewlery, Linda Farrow Projects eyewear, Philip Treacy hats and Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Front Row: Zoe Saldana and Lily Rabe

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, Sarah Jessica Parker, Leighton Meester, Iman, Charlize Theron, Zoe Saldana, Diane Kruger, Michelle Monaghan, Anna Paquin< Amber Le Bon, Christian Ricci and Kristen Stewart

    Whilst I appreciate the way in which Prabal’s looks translate on the red carpet, to call this collection derivative would be an understatement. In almost every look, I see Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy DNA, culminating in the finale gowns which appear to be almost direct rip-offs of his haute couture. Bit of originality wouldn’t go astray. And those pieces which don’t directly reference Givenchy (like some of the gold looks) come across as clumsy and heavy and ill-considered. Disappointing.

      For some I agree with you, but who knows if he stole Tisci’s idea.
      Anyway, I like the collection.

    I saw Rooney Mara in about half of these looks. Look 28 for the Oscars?

    One of the least cohesive collections that I’ve seen.

    A lot of it is too edgy/strange for me but I like the third across (gold and white dress) and the Emma Stone one :)
