For Pre-Fall 2013, Prabal Gurung took a deep dive into the digital ocean, exploring that fascinatingly synthetic 90s-inspired aesthetic, which was so recently buzzed about during "Seapunkgate".

For Gurung this meant soft pants featuring dissipating floral motifs, and symmetrical jackets and tops (finally, a designer takes a break from the ubiquitous motorcycle jacket!). Vibrant turquoises, emeralds, and amethysts livened up the a palette of dulled-metallic techno-neutrals. Though new territory to Gurung, this futuristic style is not unlike that which Nicolas Ghesquiere often explored at Balenciaga.

Though most of the collection featured softer constructions, Gurung made sure to show off his tailoring skills, expertly crafting a rocket-ship of a fit-and-flare dress.

The styling choice of Tupperware-bright, heeled moon-boots may push this collection outside of the accessible for some, but, swapped out for less Judy Jetson-inspired footwear, these looks speak to the quickening digital pace of our lives.
