There was no shortage of ruffles and feathers in Prabal Gurung's spring collection, which delivered the pretty look Gurung has come to be known for in his short but successful career since launching his line in 2009. Gurung cited Indian artist Anish Kapoor as inspiration for the line (note the red, silver, and black palette) and referenced women's styles in South Asia, where he and Kapoor grew up before leaving to live as expats in the US. See the sheer tunics draped over tailored ankle-length trousers for that. All the prettiness was tempered by original black and white prints, blazers, and tailored menswear that doubles as eveningwear. Decide if you think it works after the jump.
