Spring 2012 Prabal Gurung Video
Do you love Prabal Gurung? How about Candice Swanepoel? What if I told you a handful or orchids and the two aforementioned names got together for a video collaboration to promote the brand? EPIC! The video goes by so fast I can hardly follow it but the truth is by the end of the flashing scenes you get the picture. The fabulously dressed and divinely styled Swanepoel is as gorgeous as ever but is a bit darker than her normal blond chipper self.
I can almost guarantee that if I didn’t tell you that the Victoria’s Secret model we have all grown to love was the model in the video you never would have guessed. It’s not just her auburn hair or style that makes you think she is someone else, it’s the way she moves and commands the promo vid that takes you into her sexy place and get a glimpse of what it would be like to be her special someone… You know what I mean… the one who makes her err… happy… explosively happy.
The use of the vibrant indigo florals and the sheer tulle cap sleeves gave a mixture of powerful woman and soft femininity which the orchid mimicked graciously. The silhouette of the dress was also similar to that of a flower, wild and soft.
Anyway the Spring 2012 collection of Prabal Garung looks incredible in the video and although the quick flashing makes it somewhat of a nauseating experience, it also creates enough hype to drive buyers into a boutique nearest you and check out the clothes in greater detail. It is no wonder that more fashion houses are taking to this concept of doing an artistic promotional film depicting exactly what they were trying to showcase on the runway without having their vision be distorted in any way. When these types of films are looked at as the thing that culminated in the designer’s head through the season, it can be appreciated and used to feel the next collection as opposed to making an all too easy and often expected snap-judgement.
