Gurung was at his strongest thinking along similarly reduced lines. A black and white double-layer dress had a graphic punch, as did another A-line frock in blue and tomato red. Those colors turned up again in the knitwear, a growth area for the designer. His pants—a little bit stretchy, slightly flared—do a great business too. For evening, he paired nearly neon silks with nude mesh corsetry details in another nod to Moran's work. The emphasis here: beauty, plain and simple.
