It was a Holy war on the runway with Gareth Pugh’s Fall Collection representing the Knights Templar in the literal red cross makeup. There was an absense of color, literally as black was the palette. Leather, top stitched and stiff paired with a line skirts. I love the jacket and coats with he cape sleeve. The three quarter length zip coat is cool, especially styled with the headdress- not those boots though. I never like gorilla fur- this explains the big foot sightings.
No one wants to look like a big hairy matted mess who’s ready for the rain and battle apparently. No one wants to look like a child’s school science project to represent a sea urchin- made out of straws. No one wants to look like they went to a vet and got a cone collar. No one should wrap a cheap kids’ blanket about their body and strut and pose all diva like- or look like a KKK cult member wearing a blanket for a robe. Perhaps Sia would like to rock the toupee dress and hat.
I think the floating skirt on skirt action deserves a paragraph all its own. It is an interesting illusion layer effect, and this is the first time I’ve seen anything like this. Now, to take the concept itself into consideration- I think this is cool, it allows for the creation of volume while also creating that flatering illusion silhouette.
