It's the lookbook that I've been waiting to see for months. The one that caused me to drop what I was doing so that I could click on over to Elle's exclusive first look and inspect every image in great detail. My appraisal? It's even better than I expected. Prabal Gurung's signature sporty shapes, ruffles, and vibrant digital and floral prints translated gorgeously to perfect-for-spring pieces that look inspired by a tropical vacation. The collection, which was actually inspired by love and romance, will be available just in time for Valentine's Day on February 10. In addition to clothing, the collection also includes a lust worthy array of jewelry, footwear, and handbags in bright colors and flirty, feminine shapes.
You know where I'll be bright and early on that day! Below are six of the looks that I'll be putting on my wish list.
1. Short-sleeve dress in First Date print and black, $39.99; miniaudiere in Nolita print, $34.99; floral necklace, $39.99; crystal teardrop pendant necklace, $19.99; wedge sandals in Apple red, $29.99
