Prabal Guru 2010 Spring/Summer Collection
In his sophomore season, Prabal Gurung continued his fine way with lady-fied clothes, challenging himself to show how a woman can dress up without turning frivolous. He found the answer in his mother’s old Rive Gauche bottles, not only their bright blue-and-silver sheen which informed his palette, but also, by extension, Yves Saint Laurent’s provocative pilfering of men’s wear. Hence, the controlled drama of a white tuxedo with a single vertical lapel bow, low-slung trousers with ankle ties and a terrific tiered trench.
The presentation included Jeneil Williams and Gaye McDonald, once again.
