We reported back in October 2012 that Parabal Gurung was doing a line for target! Here is what we said would be the highlights of the collection:
- sweet heart styles, cut-out shoulders and one shoulder styles
- structured pants with pronounced waist lines
- Print wise expect psychedelic and watercolor like floral prints
After viewing the collection this weekend, we have to say, it was nothing that we expected but we could say it was definitely what we saw on the runways last year!! The collection did not feature pants but the signature pronounced waist line was added to dresses as seen above in the center and last picture above.
We also predicted that we would see some cold shoulder effects which was represented in the red dress above. We also the psychedelic print in also every shirts and dress as well as the floral print as seen above. I bought the shirt above to the left. As for what the retailer said about the collection:
“reflects Gurung’s distinct aesthetic, with impeccable tailoring and feminine silhouettes, and features striking prints, hot-hued palettes and sleek styles,” such as “refined dresses, mixed-media skirts, edgy blazers and striking shoes.”
We think the retailer was right! As for Gurung, he said:
“I am so thrilled to be working with Target on a collection that brings my designs to a wider audience,” said Prabal Gurung. “This collection was inspired by love and if Target’s guests can feel even a little bit of the love that I felt while I was designing this collection, then I will consider it a job well done.”
We are indeed in love with your collection and a job well done!!!
