To coincide with the presentation of his Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Gareth Pugh once again teamed up with Ruth Hogben to create another fashion film. Starring a naked Crystal Renn, the film opened the runway show in Paris last night and saw Renn thrashing about.

At the show the bondage-style collection featured a predominantly black and white palette of caged pieces. Leather in vertical strips seemed to keep models restricted within their clothes. Lattice style panelling acted like a barrier or protection, whether that was its intention or not. When the pieces were too extreme, there was body con dresses, zip-up vests, and billowy striped hoods.
