FW14: Prabal Gurung’s Mustang Kingdom

FW14_NYFW_Prabal Gurung_IB

Prabal Gurung’s FW14 collection seemed softer than usual, characterized by a more subtle color palette than we’ve come to expect from this lover of florid brights. This subtle grey and navy permeated a cozy queue of chunky patchworked knits complemented by wispy asymmetrical chiffon skirts – though a rich thread of persimmon/tangerine/candy apple red/bordeaux wove its way through the collection as well, reaching a crescendo with the gorgeous pieced red carpet gowns that closed the show.

A silhouette of covered up on top (cloaks, shawls, sweaters, and scarves) and party on the bottom prevailed throughout most of the collection. Gurung drew from his native Nepal and the former Kingdom of Lo (Upper Mustang) for inspiration, and we could feel the Himalayan magic in the protective warmth of his wraps and the exotic quality of his prints and fabrics.

The fantastic rounded shades worn by some of the models were spot-on desirable and on-trend, lending additional mystery and appeal to these gorgeous Gurung girls, including the stunning Ola Rudnicka, illustrated here.
