It’s been a few days since New York Fashion Week ended so I know I’m way behind, but it’s taken me this long to go through all the shows! The amount of blog posts and tweets about NYFW was intense, but it didn’t take me long to pick my favorite collection.
I knew as soon as I saw Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2012 collection that it would be my favorite. Gurung was inspired by the fetishistic work of Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki and wanted to take traditionally fetish-oriented materials and treat them in a more delicate manner.
I was instantly drawn to the color palette of this collection. The deep violet, electric aqua and blushing ivory beautifully capture the elegance of Gurung’s designs. The feminine colors and lacy accents combine with the rougher leather and PVC to form a gorgeous yin and yang.
