Gareth Pugh Spring Summer 2011 01

  This is such a ridiculously perfect collection it hurts my eyes.  Just a little bit.  Technically superb, cohesive, a variety of pieces for men AND women, prints, metallics, fit to perfection, with structure, asymmetry AND draping.  Have to say though, between collections I’d like to see a wider variety of necklines from His Highness GP.  I mean lord knows I love an asymmetric breasted jacket more than your average bear, but I know there’s […]

Fast Forward: Noomi Rapace

December 8, 2012 at 1:57 am

Hopefully this will be a weekly feature.  Nothing I love more than spacey shit.  Except well….you know.  This column will feature sci-fi movie costumes, style icons, fashion spreads, ads, any assortment of images more over the top futuristic than you would typically see at a party. This is a few months old but perfection: my dark-haired doppelganger Noomi Rapace (from that Swedish tattoo movie) and 3 of my favourite contemporary designers Iris van Herpen, Gareth […]
