ICB S/S 14


When a designer looks to the minimalist brilliance of artist Dan Flavin for inspiration, you can expect a collection that is stark without being simplistic. Prabal Gurung’s striking spring showing for ICB hit all the right notes, focusing on easy to wear pieces with colors that brought to mind Flavin’s iconic florescent light fixtures. Beginning with a palate cleansing series of pale separates accessorized with white lace ups, Gurung built up anticipation before revealing a burst of color. Digital prints in shades of purple, cobalt and jet enlivened motorcycle jackets and loose fitting mini-dresses – exciting numbers sure to make waves with the youthful clientele ICB attracts. Prints aside, the most compelling moments of the collection involved either monochromatic jewel tones, or opalescent knitwear – Flavin would be pleased.
