Gareth Pugh spring summer 06


catwalking

Striking what a little bit of color can do to Gareth Pugh. If his pieces were already deemed "unwearable", then red can definitely push them over the point of no return into Piaggi and Blow territory... they become almost unrecognizable, if not for the obvious signatures like the star print, patent leather polygons and PVC.
He has been evolving gradually, sometimes walking on the brink of rehashing (the "lumps and bumps" being used in two consecutive collections?), but I am crazy curious to see what is in store for SS10.

PS: If I'm not mistaken look 3 is a RED AND WHITE MINK

he's kind of a one-trick pony imho. but that said, he still does have some really nice pieces that i'd wear every season. i would totally rock look #7's b/w satin jacket thing.

^I have been thinking the same thing. If you look at his menswear, it is looks to be a rehash of the men's looks he showed during S/S 2008 and F/W 08. That being said, I wouldn't mind owning a couple a jacket or two.
