Gareth Pugh - Paris Spring 2010
(PARIS) Did someone tell Gareth Pugh to lighten up? Well, it worked. For Spring 2010, the designer infused all that goth with a literal, diaphanous sense of the ethereal, as dusty grays lightened up all that noir bondage. The aftermath was a collection still heavy on the concept, but more bent on a real-world incarnation. Let's start with the striped knit and crepe long-sleeved rugby-ish dress on Snejana, or the full-length version on Karlie Kloss. Moody, sexy, and generally badass, this number has loads of retail potential and doesn't require a pop star's courage to wear. (Same goes for Pugh's epic bondage boots with skintight minidresses.) The slashed gowns were as striking as always--same with the pieced-together leather jackets for both boys and girls--but Pugh earned himself a new audience last night, one that loves a wickedly taut trou just as much as a belted lightweight trench.
