Prabal Gurung is feeling optimistic this 2019. Part of that may be because of his new store that recently opened down at Bleecker Street. Or the fact that there are now more women in the United States Congress than ever before. All these jovial moments inspired him to create his colorful Pre-Fall 2019 Collection, which was a ‘greatest hits’ of sorts. Silhouettes and items that have helped him gain considerable fame were featured in more vivacious colors and stunning cuts. The likes of his color-blocked tight knit dresses, patchwork sweaters, and sparkling evening pieces were all there, just made better and more joyful. This season, he also piled on the animal print by way of blue and red zebra stripes and incorporated it onto both his women’s and menswear. When seen in its totality, it’s easy to pass this line off as too eclectic to be cohesive, but there’s a certain spirit within these looks that relates all the different colors, shapes, patterns, and cuts into one big celebration of life. And while Prabal Gurung is a happy man, his women will be glad to be dressed in such electric designs as well.
