I have nothing but praise for Gareth Pugh‘s collection for Spring/Summer 2012. With ingenious longtime collaborators Matthew Stone and Ruth Hogben providing exquisitely heavy sound and vision to enhance Pugh’s collection, the dramatic habit of previous seasons took a triumphant turn towards happier semblances.
Doing the smartest thing a great designer could do, he refined his point of view. Floaty scarf points, monochrome, tailored volume, stripes, and more; all precise icons of the Gareth Pugh empire which were finely tuned and rehashed to suit a wardrobe of a metaphorical bird of prey. Pugh excelled.
