For Fall/Winter 2015, Prabal Gurung strikes a balance between cozy American sportswear and sensual, revealing attire. A recent excursion to the Adirondack Mountains, a sprawling and mysterious range just north of New York City, inspired Gurung’s work, with a color palette that suggested mountainous terrain and clothes presented with a serene notion of minimalist comfort.

Precision and perfection taught Gurung the patience necessary to balance the two ideas. The first look struck an accord between a heavy winter coat and a nude slip dress, while other looks juxtaposed heavy knitwear with breezy skirts. Weightier materials were cut away to reveal yards of leg, slices of stomach, and healthy amounts of décolletage. With Mongolian fur coats and printed outerwear, Gurung was able to reveal without leaving his women out in the cold. Delicious Nepalese cashmere also supported the sensual ideas in the collection, while on the other hand Fair Isle knits supported comfort. Gurung deviated from his neutral palette at times to include tomato red and bright orange, presenting the brighter hues on leather pencil skirts, shift dresses, turtlenecks, and outerwear. Eveningwear embraced a slouchy fit that saw delicate, sparkly dresses without definitive waistlines, making the fit flattering to lean silhouettes and tricky for those who require tailoring support for their curves.
