“Fashionable, not fashion victim,” said ICB’s creative director Prabal Gurung when describing the girl that inspired this cool and fun collection.
Many silhouettes were oversize and cropped for a relaxed, street-chic appeal, but Gurung also paid attention to structure. The group of white looks that opened the show, for example, included a wool cocoon biker jacket with pleated mini shorts and a short top with roomy carrot-shaped pants.
Inspired by the fluorescent light installations of American minimalist artist Dan Flavin, Gurung experimented with technical fabrics: A holographlike print popped on a cotton shirt with ample sleeves, while an iridescent finish was used on a cropped stretch sateen top.
The designer incorporated a pastel palette for ICB’s eveningwear, which included egg-shaped organza dresses embroidered with vinyl sequins.
