Video Loving: Prabal Gurung – Resort 2012


I do like it when fashion designers do something new, whether it is a collaboration, or switching it up and adding menswear, I don’t know about you but it keeps it interesting. Well I was thrilled to see that for Prabal Gurung’s debut Resort collection he decided to team up with dance-rap artist Rye Rye, no I haven’t heard of her either, but the song is called New Thing so it is aptly named!!!

“I have always followed the multitude of fashion films created by other design houses and loved seeing all the different interpretations of the collections,” says Prabal. “But the idea behind this was to bring other creative minds to the table and inspire our customers as well as the YouTube generation.”

I just love it, normally designers hit the runway to showcase their latest collections but for the Resort lines it normally just gets Editor previews and goes slightly under the radar, so I am so glad that this video directed by Kenneth Cappello brings the fashion alive.

There are 21 looks in the collection, spy them all here, there are lots of bold colours including Barbie pink, yellow and green, which work perfectly against the black and white graphic prints, as well as the flashes of florals, laser-cut polka dots, sequins, and ribbon embroidery. I just adore the statement cocktail dresses and ball gowns – absolutely gorgeous.

I really want to see this dress on the red carpet, please super stylists to the stars put this beauty in front of your clients!!
