Gareth Pugh's dark knights roam Paris Fashion Week A/W 2012
It was another runway show which greeted buyers and editors at the presentation of Gareth Pugh's Autumn/Winter 2012-13 collection. The British designer opted for the runway instead of his usual video installations, but they were no less dark and moody.
Set in a disused garage in Rue de Turenne, Pugh's models traipsed along as black leaves fell from the ceiling - very Autumn-like indeed. In typical Pugh architectural styles, he sent his warriors out onto the stage in over-the-knee boots, sharp shoulders, high leather cowl necks, folded tunics and giant coats. Based on a palette of mostly black and grey. Incorporating fur and fringing, the collection was set on a shape of cinched in waists, full skirt coats, as well as zip-up capes.
