after Manish Arora, a true pallet cleanse is required. how wonderful to have it in the form of Gareth Pugh. Each season the designs become more refined, the silhouettes more wearable. Icy whites, charcoal grays, black and chrome in sophisticated wide leg trousers, robotic pieced leggings and ethereal, opalescent chiffon dresses are so ready for commercial consumption that when his signature wild streak comes out in sculptural trenches and body armor it is almost surprising. almost. Gareth Pugh’s cold futurism is phenomenal and possibly the most mature collection we have seen from the designer as of yet.
