In a tribute to skirt suits, power dressing, and a strong woman, Gareth Pugh created a runway that was patriotic, powerful, and fun. Shown on February 21 and attended by French ballet star Marie-Agnès Gillot at the Grand Temple of Freemasons Hall, Pugh debuted a collection that was reminiscent of the eighties, yet with a modern flair. With camel coats, royal blue star-spangled jackets, and retro shades, Pugh created looks for a fashionable, yet business savvy lady who knows what she wants. Where a skirt suit wasn’t present, flared pants addressed the same attitude. Outerwear was tailored, military-esque, and cheeky. Models sported cinched capes and soft leather jackets with shearling collars. How to make it more fun? Pugh added adorable hats, although the occasional face pieces leant a scray nod towards BDSM or Hannibal Lector.
