A glamorous trip to the future was the impression the latest Gareth Pugh show left on the audience. See the main highlights of the fall 2013 show presented at Paris Fashion Week 2013.
The Gareth Pugh fall 2013 collection was expected to be
edgy and the designer definitely met these expectations putting
futuristic vibes back into the spotlight. Of course, when we're
talking about Gareth Pugh, these definitions are redefined
constantly, especially since in terms of tailoring and proportions
adopted, the new alternatives feel almost couture. This time, the
designer has let all the focus fall on the pieces themselves rather
than the looks as a whole.
It would be hard to decode the source of inspiration behind the new Gareth Pugh fall 2013 collection if the designer would have been secretive about his source of creative insight, however, he has revealed the main elements that have played a crucial role in the newest collection: "We had found this information about a tribe of women called the Asgarda. They're amazing and inspiring. They want autonomy from men, and they live in the Carpathian Mountains. It is about both fight and flight this time," Gareth Pugh told Style.com, explaining the strong inclination towards drama easily distinguishable in the collection.
In Gareth Pugh's world, monochrome outfits are never synonym with plain ensembles. He kept his chromatic options well rounded, with black, white and gray being in the spotlight. Occasional blue accents felt fresh without diminishing the sense of edginess brought by the liberal use of high impact volumes and interesting textures. A clear sense of proportion, high impact textural patterns, gorgeous leather pieces, spectacular accessories all made the new Gareth Pugh fall 2013 collection a worthwhile source of inspiration for those who like to think outside the box and crave something different.
Despite the fact that the vast majority of the looks from the Gareth Pugh fall 2013 collection would feel a little edgy for the average shopper, there are also plenty of pieces that would feel quite minimalistic when looked at separately and might even be perceived as toned down despite their dark tones and strong textural details. Dare to inject a little edginess in the following season and keep boredom at bay by taking inspiration from these fabulous options and adjusting these ideas to your personality.
