Runway Report: Prabal Gurung Spring 2010

“Wrapped and packaged” is how Prabal Gurung described his spring 2010 collection, the follow up to his debut presentation last fall. While the majority of his girls were literally wrapped and packaged in neat little bows and belts, the emphasis according to Gurung was on “sensual and fun clothing, nothing too vulgar or in your face.” In other words – classic, timeless pieces that call to mind Yves Saint Laurent, by whom the young designer has been greatly influenced.

Most of Gurung’s 26 looks focused on polished eveningwear, and the color palate mimicked that of last season – black, red and white – with a touch of well-placed electric blue.

Not one to shy away from luxury details, Gurung spared no expense on embroidered feathers used for a tuxedo blouse, a graphic tank made of four-ply silk crepe, and the intricate hand-beading on a black strapless dress. His attention to the finest element of design is best seen in one of the most outstanding (and more subtle) looks from the collection - a draped red silk dress with black inserts, gently gathered at the hip.

As fellow designer Peter Som (who worked with Gurung as the Creative Director of Bill Blass) observed as he fought the crowd to congratulate the designer on his successful collection, “It looks like he’s going to need a larger space next season.” With fashion notables including Olivia Chantecaille, Elettra Rossellini Wiedmann, Virginia Smith, Rachel Zoe and Lauren Santo Domingo braving the packed Chelsea gallery space to support Gurung, we couldn’t agree more.
