“Resort and holiday should be about living, enjoying, having fun,” said Prabal Gurung during his studio presentation. And indeed, this collection was probably Gurung’s most laid-back to date. To start off, he sent out a beautiful blue ikat chiffon shirtdress, followed by a matching top and asymmetric hemmed, high-waisted skirt. “Whenever she travels, [my client] wants to feel easy, comfortable,” he said. Further reinforcing the designers: new, more relaxed approaches were silk bias dresses and flared pants featuring strategically undone buttons.
And of course, Gurung did have to include just a bit of drama — in his sought-after evening wear. A black and white floral strapless gown with all-over fringed texture provided just the right amount of it.
