Prabal Gurung SS15

Glistening, snow-white dresses and peak-inspired prints: Gurung goes back to his Nepalese roots and presents an ode to Mount Everest

Initial impression:

The mountain from peak down: the show opened with a white story with sparking threads that looked like sunlit snow, then shifted to a print with cliffs, peaks, and undulating lines that looked like rushing rivers, and at the base of this collection mountain we find bursts of color like wildflowers in the valley.

True life:

As it turns out, Prabal Gurung grew up in Nepal taking class trips to Mount Everest, the mountain at the heart of the collection.

Soundtrack of the week:

The show music for Gurung was FKA Twigs' "Preface" (Jason Wu opted for a Twigs track too). And speaking of recent Dazed cover stars, both Natalie Westling and Binx Walton walked in Gurung's show.

Last season Prabal Gurung presented goddesses from a forgotten civilisation wrapped in monochramic layers with lashings of red. See it here:
