Gareth Pugh Fall/Winter 2012

Gareth Pugh has always approached fashion from an unconventional perspective. From his earliest collections onward Pugh has created a vision of glamour that is arresting and individual. His eponymous line has become more wearable over time but he has never lost his flair for drama. Pugh’s fall extravaganza began with confetti spilling from the sky and a thrilling first look featuring the combo of spherical headdress & mountain of fur. If the pounding techno beat blaring in the background didn’t grab your attention, Ms. Small’s sartorial strut certainly did.

Sumptuous textures were a motif throughout the show, with fur adorning everything from skirts to leather jackets and capes. Gareth’s girls might look foreboding, but they’ll never be cold. Layers of fringe provided a fetching alternative to all those hides, with a surprisingly slinky set of dresses paired with thigh high boots for maximum effect. We wouldn’t be surprised if the unique draped wedge boots that featured throughout the show became the heel hit of the season.

  1. Jessica Flores says:

    I enjoyed this. It wasn't exactly the most exaggerated/ dramatic collection of his career (many people seemed to have a problem with that.. high expectations I suppose). Nonetheless, observing it from the perspective of an outsider, unbiased and all, this collection was quite remarkable.

  2. Bruce Edwin says:

    Garth is a true artist and visionary. This is an amazingly beautiful collection, expertly presented with layers and designs that are extraordinary. A true master here worthy of admiration and congratulations for more great and daringly sexy work.

  3. Jourdan’s first look was my ultimate favorite. Gareth Pugh is simply incredible!
