For fall, and the fifth anniversary of his label, Prabal Gurung dedicated his collection to his homeland Nepal. He was particularly taken with Mustang, a tiny, former kingdom in the Himalayas. Gurung decorated his Moynihan Station space with life-size gongs and the models parade down the runway Ki: Theory’s rapturous “Stand by Me.”
His mood board was plastered with images of abstract paintings by artist Cecily Brown and native citizens in ordinary clothes, but as we expected, there was nothing run-of-the-mill about his designs. Prior to the show, the designer hinted that draping would come into major play and it did in form of chunky knits, bundle scarves, and wrap coats that were swathed elegantly over the upper body.
The looks found a happy medium between comfort and luxury, with sumptuous, roomy sweaters and cozy furs on top, paired with ruched and sashed chiffon mini-skirts .The designs came in an array of earthy hues including burnt orange, crimson, and dark green, paired against pops of painterly tribal prints.
As we reported earlier, a streaker crashed the runway in a sparkly G-string and crown, but Gurung wasn’t going to allow it to reign on his celestial display.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
