Prabal Gurung Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear New York FW2013
For his fall 2013 collection Prabal Gurung took inspiration from an article about US military body armor for women which he read in Time Magazine. The basic idea of the collection was empowerment. Gurung feminized the classic army-wear of olive green and navy tailoring inventively, slimming the cuts, accentuating waistlines with belts and leather harnesses, and topping off day-wear with white fur. Chunky knits and slinky satin skirts and blouses featured fleshy cutouts and epaulet details. Skirts were shown with thigh-high footwear that approximated leg braces. With women dressed like this we can win the war.
