Can Prabal Gurung Get an Amen?
The custom-blended neo-pastels seen on Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2014 runway are soon to be available in single tubes. According to WWD, the designer teamed up with MAC, his longtime backstage beauty partner, to create a 14-piece collection arriving on shelves November 26. In addition to the “dirty” lilac (Ultramarine Pink), beige (Light English Red), and crimson (Carmine Rouge) bullets, the range will include a bronzing powder, cream color base, buffer brush, eyeshadow, liner, Chromagraphic pencil, and lip gloss—all housed in weighty gold packaging inspired by his mother’s compacts. Gurung also name-checked Sylvie Fleury, Damien Hirst, and Nick Knight as muses for his first makeup collection. In addition, he revealed the envy he has for the “20 minutes to an hour” women spend in front of the mirror: “I always feel, whether it’s getting dressed or putting on makeup, it’s ritualistic, a very spiritual process that a woman has,” Gurung said. “We men don’t have the opportunity to do that. As time-consuming as it might be, it’s really a time for you and yourself, deciding how you want to feel, how you want to look.” Can Prabal get an amen?
