Inspired by Indian architect Anish Kapoor and the traditional kurtas his mother and sister wore at home in Nepal, Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2013 collection started off with masculine separates including tailcoat blazers, chiffon tunics and cropped low-slung pants with a loose silhouette.
We saw a bit of the designer’s dark side with a selection of edgier street mixed in with the frothy dresses and gowns which will most definitely hit the red carpet very soon.
Dresses and blouses with chiffon veils, feather-accented dresses, ruffled blouses, shorts, tunic dresses, blouses with draped backs and drop-waist dresses were presented on a colour palette that presented a contrast between classic black and white with pops of blue, maroon and red with the Kapoor-influenced spine print also playing its part.
Paul Hanlon at Schwarzkopf gave the models iron-straight locks with a center parting while Charlotte Tilbury for M.A.C. gave the models a barely there look with pale faces. I wonder how many celebs will work this pale-face look.
This season Prabal worked with Casadei who provided sexy strappy sandals and pumps.
The designer continued his collaboration with Linda Farrow, who provided the chic sunglasses.
