Fall 2014 RTW : Prabal Gurung, Jill Stuart and Jenni Kayne

More fall collections at New York Fashion Week.

Prabal Gurung’s collection is stellar but Jill Stuart and Jenni Kayne also made their mark.

 

Prabal Gurung

Like most designers, Parabal Gurung takes inspiration from his travels. This time it’s Nepal and the kingdom of Mustang. You can see the reference in the heavy layering that distinct shade of red. It’s dark but not vampy, it has that recognizable Himalayan feel to it. The collection is quite top heavy with jumpers, cardigans, turtlenecks all layered but only flowing chiffon skirts at the bottom. There’s a mix of texture and colour that’s very appealing. I also like the draping done with printed fabrics, almost like wrapping a shawl around you. The pantsuits look very polished. The finale gowns are stunning with the draping and mix of different fabrics. There’s a red carpet winner there for sure.

Jill Stuart

The flowing dresses seem very youthful, the mix of leather in between keeps it edgy. Rehashing what works, this collection is just that, but does it well. The faux fur coat with leather lining is very chic. I also like the shorter brick red one. There’s more experimentation with fabrics in the latter half of the collection, but it’s still very wearable.

Jenni Kayne

It’s a 30’s revival with box cuts and feminine colours. I love the orange floral printed coat, such a statement piece. The pale rose coloured pantsuit is another gem, it looks so classic and modern at the same time. The print in the gown and high low hem still looks elegant. Overall, there’s a specific look in mind that’s being showcased here and it’s one many would love to wear.
