I have two words to describe Prabal Gurung and his collections: overrated and tacky.
This collection was no better in my eyes, starting from the cheap looking shiny fabrics to the feathers, sequins and busy prints. Also I found it to be rather boring since I noticed only 4 colors throughout the whole collection. I have to say I did love the black and white slit gowns though, they were extremely sexy and sophisticated.

I love this collection, especially the strategic cut-outs with the black trim. The color scheme and prints are refreshing for Spring where I've come to expect brights and pastels.

Talk about cheap and tacky.

I can already foresee Hollywood socialites wearing some of those cut out dresses.

Some looks also reminded me of Prada's Spring 2010 collection. A poor man's version, that is.

Its interesting to see how SO MANY NYC designers have picked up on Miu Miu's girly 40s collection, this one is no exception and you can see the Balenciaga influence in the dresses but here obviously they are much more wearable and flattering. The only problem, some dresses seem heavy handed, and the pants are tacky.

A lot of the eveningwear and cokctail dresses seem very ver the top and pretentious and tacky. I do like the daywear, though.

I would normally agree that he's overrated and tacky but I just LOVED this!!! It probably helps that purple is my favorite color but I really liked all the prints and cuts. Flattering, cute and gorgeous. I especially liked the blazers.
