Prabal Gurung / Fall 2010 / New York Fashion Week

Considering Oprah chose a red Prabal gown to don on her holiday O cover, it was no surprise watching seats fill up fast at Gurung’s latest collection shown at Bryant Park’s Salon tent this past Saturday. Front-rowers included Anne Slowey, Anna Wintour, Zoe Saldana, and Rachel Zoe – a pretty decent set bearing it’s only his second offering. The show started late due to the amount of demand at the door. A blaring soundtrack comprised of jilted Gaga and Ke$ha tracks set the stage for what one would think was a pantless ode to glam rock. Instead, cascading down the catwalk came a handful of supremely sculpted black and white wool-cashmere coats, asymmetric satin dresses, and iridescent blazers, fit more aptly for Oprah than anyone on the tracklist. Gurung’s silk love affair hinted back constantly to Lanvin’s biggest blockbusters: using curved seams and double layers, the collection mirrored much of Elbaz’s genius without the level of master craft. Gurung hit the highest notes with his dual-toned pants shown in tight bootcuts second to the scrunchy lambskin PG-shaped (by Daniel Storto) gauntlet gloves featured last week on’s Style File blog.
