Pugh for “Predator” ?

I had vowed not to do any more show review type posts since I don’t have the time to give the requisite attention to all the designers that deserve it. However, since its his first exclusively menswear affair I though Gareth Pugh deserved of a little back-patting. Anyway, who better to encapsulate the steely, noir survival theme that’s been so evident on FW09’s runways?

Alas, it is still Pugh and older Male Mode readers (do you even exist?) might recall I’m not his most dedicated fan. Why? Consider glancing below…

We’re not all raving to metamorphose into some drag-tastic, braided cyborg.

    I, for one, have been converted to Pughism.

    well, after seeing what milan came up with, and the general malaise thats hit the menswear world, why not?this is a refreshing point of view – after all, how many more tasteful cashmere coats do we need to look at? gag!

    I agree with Design Citation, though I’m no huge fan of Pugh’s aesthetic, his work is grotesque occasionally in good ways. I liked a number of the coats with more subtle quilting effects.
