As part of J.Crew's partnership with the CFDA, the specialty retailer asked the winner (Billy Reid) and runners up (Prabal Gurung and Eddie Borgo) of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. Billy Reid's menswear collection for the preppy purveyor was up last month, and now, finally, something us ladies can wear: Prabal Gurung. And for once, thanks to J.Crew's lower price points, it's Prabal Gurung we can actually afford. Or at least we can try to rationalize spending $198 on a pair of pants. Because those pants are awesome.
The collection is available for pre-order on J.Crew's site now, as is a cute photo collage of Gurung's mood board for his collection, which is comprised of silk blouses, a suit, a dress and a pair of tuxedo pants, and is overall bow-happy but in a good way. Prices range from $198 to $450 and we suggest placing your orders ASAP as the collection is extremely limited--only 50 pieces were produced for some items. Take a look.
