Editorial

Fire and fury. Gareth Pugh was after a daring, ruthless muse with a very impetuous side. As smart and provocative as a wild feline, she strode confidently down the runway in leopard-print jackets, languid dappled dresses and fur coats. Later in the show she was bent on destruction, in black leather and vinyl, dresses that shaped and exaggerated the body in a metamorphosis of proportions: accentuated rigid, square shoulders, a waist-cinching belt, super high-waist trousers, work gloves. To finish off, Gareth Pugh turned his goddess into a rally driver, clothing her in shaped corsets, body shields, and futuristic dresses in electric blue. Even the materials showed their bolder side. Black patent dominated the runway, leaving room for touches of austere pinstripe, leather, plastic and fur. All following the swift changes of a fierce, furious soul.
