What piece in Gareth Pugh’s new collection didn’t take your breath away? With a renowned flair for drama, the designer first set the mood with a little pre-show film starring Crystal Renn. Then, as the models stepped onto the runway, viewers were treated to a brilliant blend of concept, sculpture, and sci-fi fantasy all rolled into one. Stripes and grids were the main features in this edgy collection, as caged architectural pieces were mixed alongside square necklines, gravity-defying collars, and sleek black and white frocks.
And to end the show as dramatically as it began, a series of reflective metallic deep blue dresses—with matching liquid leggings and cone-shaped headgear, care of Phillip Treacy—provided a fitting finale to the designer’s very directional, always genius, collection.
