As usually, Prabal Gurung brought us a bold and colourful collection. In his SS15, the designer wanted to continue what he began last season. ″I wanted to continue the journey,″ he said. ″This time it′s more a visual diary of her trek up the mountains.″ We′re back in the Himalayas, only now it′s spring. Instead of deep reds, he used a palette of sunset pastels. We had strong silhouttes, feathers, tafeta, ice fresh blue… As for summer, Prabal went really cold. The collection feels innovative, but in my opinion, there is too much of everything. Some strange fabrics, colour explosions, mesh, ruffles, mountains, knits… If that was meant to be a monk modesty, Prabal, then your quiet and calm mood went too far into loud noise.
Prabal Gurung said he approached his striking new Resort collection as if it was a “one-stop shop from morning to evening.” The idea, he explained, was prompted by all the traveling he’s been doing to trunk shows in places as far-flung as Singapore and Toronto. It’s smart business to listen to customers’ needs, but if Gurung embraced practicality, he didn’t abandon his creative side.
