The Touch, the feel of Prabal.

Two words that came to mind when perusing the racks of Prabal Gurung's Spring 2012 collection were Sophisticated and Sensual. This makes sense as the collection's inspiration derives from Noboyushi Araki's "Sensual Flowers" series. Two of my favorite pieces were the "peekaboo" purple dress and the engineered printed blazer. Both pieces in keeping with a very wearable appeal. For those of you who are unfamiliar with, Prabal Gurung, he is a New York based designer by way of Nepal. A graduate of Parson's School of Design, his unique combination of simplicity and Panache has drawn accolades in the fashion community. The experience of seeing and feeling the collection up close really makes one appreciate the craftsmanship and true design involved in the collection.

The Prabal Gurung trunk show is showing through tomorrow afternoon
