Let me tell you about a moment I look back upon and positively cringe. It was a couple years ago, and I worked for Sally Hansen, where I was the marketing manager for nail color. We were looking to layer in a second designer collaboration for fashion week (in addition to Tracy Reese, who we already worked with.) Someone suggested Prabal Gurung. I wrinkled up my nose… “Prabal who?” Apparently, he was going to be the next big thing. And I was utterly clueless. Major foot-in-mouth moment. Whatever. We went on to collaborate with him every season, and I went on to lust after each & every collection. (And deny that I ever was that clueless.)
This was Gurung’s first pre-Fall collection. And it is delicious… I want it all. Sequins, tweeds, sparkle, fur, and bold prints. But all in a palette of incredibly wearable rich neutrals.
And guys… that green dress. Doesn’t it look as though it belongs on Downton Abbey? Mary would totally wear that. Just saying.
