Prabal Gurung strung out

I was quite intrigued by the progression of Prabal Gurung's S/S 2011 show. He started off by sending six looks down the runway with a color scheme straight out of the brightest Crayola box, but then dramatically shifted gears to a completely sheer, nude set of looks. Although I was excited by both of these seemingly contradictory aesthetics, the collection didn't seem to have that total cohesion or chameleon-like growth that I think is so important. Each season, I like to be able to reference a designer's collection with a few key monikers that trigger images and memories from the show but, I feel like those few adjectives don't really exist for Prabal Gurung's latest collection.
