Seems that the Pugh’s work for the opera wound up informing his new collection. Anyway, there is no beating a Gareth Pugh show for sheer showmanship -this season, he accelerated hard into that impulse, sending out numerous looks in bullion-like gold These heavily decorated ensembles gave way to a collection notable for its atypical earthiness. There were the striped and sunburst-patterned looks which gives the Pugh aesthetic something new. The broad sundresses, caftans, and obi-belted looks struck an entirely original tone.
