A fresh air blew inside Gareth Pugh‘s Paris venue. His collection for Spring/Summer 2014 had something different, something liberating. Pugh introduced in black, grey, white and a newly-popped teal, a series of powerful outfits consisting of structured kimonos, round statement vinyl shoulders and lines that follow the silhouette in tailored excellence but, still giving off a dynamic figure. Also, giant feather headpieces in black and blush pink made a quite delectable appearance. Yes, Pugh may have taken a new approach but didn’t swim in entirely foreign waters. His color palette, doses of humor and (lighter) structural exaggeration were still there. He just chose this time to reinvent himself and explore new creative directions, not because his signature style fell in the nets of predictability, no no no… on the contrary, because it was just the right time for himself. And something wonderful -always in a Pugh manner of course!- came out of that.
