>> Prabal Gurung's six-piece collaboration with J.Crew — which features looks from his past collections recreated in new colors and materials — launches online and in select stores today. The collection ranges from $198 for a pair of tuxedo trousers to $450 for a tulle rose top with a mesh back, and only 50 pieces were created for some of the designs.
"I played with volume and scale and focused on a few special pieces with a story to tell — it's very modern, chic, and put-together, but there's also a lived-in quality," Gurung said of the collection. "There's a subtext and sub-layers to the designs we chose for J.Crew," he noted, adding: "I worked closely with the J.Crew team to determine the looks that would translate well with both of our audiences. They did a stellar job producing each piece and I could not be happier with how everything turned out."
