Romantic Vanguard Vixens

The Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 Collection Epitomized Avant-Garde Craft

— September 27, 2012 — Fashion
Models walked down the runways of the Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 collection show in veils and avant-garde frocks.

The surreal collection that toyed with exaggerated silhouettes, flamenco-inspired ruffles and an ultra-modern mix of emphasized flare sleeves and pants. Using leather paneling in black, decadent silk in white-grey and crimson valentine-red, Pugh showcased a design ideal that redefines his avant-garde aesthetic. Each fierce exit was complimented by decorate detailing.

The veiled aspect of each look added to the eerily romantic feeling of the collection. Ethereal silhouettes contrasted by strong accents were meant to hint at a juxtaposing strong-feminine beauty. The British designer has established himself as a seasoned contender in the Paris Fashion Week spectacle. His mix of inspired luxury with modernistic vanguard have resonated well with aficionados of fashion theatrics.
