Faithful to the shapes, proportions and process very present in his previous collections, the designer presented his Spring 2014 collection at the Paris Fashion Week.
Pugh chose to play with neutral colours for his spring collection. Except for a turquoise dress that opened the show, the rest of his collection was mainly composed of black, white and grey. The first face at the show, Sasha Luss, was wearing a long turquoise silk dress and a feather pale plum headdress. With this twisted combination of showgirl and drag queen, the model walked down the catwalk to the rhythm of In Every Dream Home A Heartache by Roxy Music.
Shape and structure were the two words that strike out of Pugh’s collection: with oversized shoulders, the garments were all very tight on the waist and legs, emphasizing women’s shape. Sexy, although not showing a lot of skin, this collection is all a woman can dream of. The silhouettes were stiffened, and the cuts were crisp. Pugh’s declared being inspired by traditional Japanese clothing for his collection, which reflects itself with all the draping and layers.
Fabrics mainly consisted of silk, leather, sequins and wool.
Linsday Wixon, a very un-Pughish model made an appearance on the catwalk. She was wearing a silver sequined top with assorted sleeves and a long creme skirt. The glitter almost made a mirror effect that contrasted with the inverted trapeze shaped skirt.
Another key figure, was model Catherine McNeil, wearing all black. Her strapless black leather dress was worn with dirty black thigh boots. Were added to that outfit, a black leather bolero with exaggerated shoulders and very tight sleeves.
The show closed with an all white outfit. A long silky dress was worn with an enormous feather headdress that continued on the arms, forming long sleeves.
