Prabal Gurung with Hanne Gaby Odiele
Who: Prabal Gurung joined by a trio of hostesses—Hannah Bronfman, Elen Kling, and Leandra Medine—and Hanny Gaby Odiele, Elettra Wiedemann, Hayley Bloomingdale and DJ Mia Morretti.
What: The Barneys New York-hosted launch of Prabal Gurung’s debut collection for Japanese brand, ICB, fêted with shopping, cocktails, a vintage popsicle cart, and a live concert by indie band, Tanlines.
Where: Barneys New York Co-Op in Chelsea.
When: Wednesday, August 15th.
Why: “I like to think of the ICB collection as a stepping-stone to my own,” said Gurung, who spent the evening surrounded by friends and fans, each of them eager to get their hands on one of his designs. “I always focus on feminine silhouettes, and channeled this into the ICB collection with a focus on a bold color palette; I really tried to retain the individuality and statement I see in my own work .”
