Gareth Pugh Catwalk Fashion Show Paris ss2012
Again a film opened the show of Gareth Pugh in Paris. Ruth Hogben made a short movie with a naked Chrystal Renn, who appeared to be bound and completely ferocious. It set an angry tone for the collection. The first part of the show the clothes looked like cages, coats made of stiff horizontal strips. Was this about protection or defense? The cages were followed by tight dresses and cropped vests in black and white.
At the end the film screen burst into purple flames, and dark warriors appeared in shiny molded coats and matching helmets.
