During the week of the Paris pret a porter as we can not talk from Gareth Pugh? A really brilliant designer, one of the few who walk with courage and determination along the borderline dark side of fashion on the catwalk after presenting every sartorial masterpieces which are also symbols of a dream-haunted world. Black is definitely her color, as demonstrated during the last autumn / winter 2012-2013 was presented yesterday during Paris Fashion Week being held these days in the French capital.
Black as a nightmare, as black as ink, black women Valkyries, sublime creatures who do not belong to this world. Besides, the prêt à porter Pugh is definitely couture costume and almost, in the theatrical sense of the term, and the twentieth anniversary of the cult movie by Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" can not imagine another costume that would be able to make sense with greater intensity of oppression and gloom that dominated the entire city of Los Angeles. But Gareth Pugh is not melancholy, but the expressive power of dark and surreal at the same time. Spleen has a natural cut-catching with its breathtaking, especially in tailored leather garments, women become heroines and comic book characters, perfect for Gotham City or Underworld.
The fur, then, with Gareth Pugh is much more than just a trend: haute couture was at its purest. Giant ruffles in contrasting capes that fall along the wild and primitive shoulders have something ethnic and tribal charms, as well as jackets that are a masterpiece of construction tailoring. Some even hide the face of the wearer, others have cut straps amazing spire, sharp and worthy of some alien princess.
The British designer, abandoned the catwalks of London, in Paris seeking a clearance officer who succeeds wonderfully, and some leaders, especially those in the skin have enticed buyers and industry professionals. Being borderline does not mean being out of the market, but only a symbol of a different aesthetic. Fortunately.
