How sweet is Prabal Gurung?  He’s showing me the collection!  When did I get so lucky?!

 Britton Parker, Prabal Gurung Sales Manager, on the inspiration for the collection.
“He was inspired by a Japanese photograph series called Sensual Flowers.  So he worked with a printmaker in London to kind of use those prints as an inspiration for these prints, which are called the Surreal Floral prints.”
 "He used this very feminine soft floral print and kind of mixed it with bondage materials – leather, rubber and latex, these are rubber paillets – this is spray painted latex, feathers and lace, so it’s kind of about using this soft feminine floral to soften up these harder materials.”
