NY Shoe of the Day: Prabal Gurung

NY Shoe of the Day: Prabal
A look from Prabal Gurung’s spring ’12 collection

Mesh, satin and plastic tubing are not an obvious trio of materials for shoes, but Nicholas Kirkwood and Prabal Gurung refuse to be bound by traditional notions of fabrication. Case in point: Nicholas Kirkwood’s footwear designs for Prabal Gurung’s latest runway outing, which balanced techie and feminine elements to sophisticated effect. A mirrored platform and stiletto added an edgy futuristic effect to the ankle-strap pumps, while sheer mesh and corset lacing added extra sex appeal. Paired with a transparent paneled slip dress that virtually floated down the catwalk, this style proved that spring’s version of femininity also packs a punch.
