Somebody Stop Gareth Pugh

I blogged about designer Gareth Pugh's Fall 2009 menswear collection before, and I think my general reaction to his RTW collection (which debuted yesterday in Paris) is the same. I recognize this is more art than fashion, but art should be beautiful or important. This, IMHO, is neither. Besides, this collection is supposed to be ready to wear. My question to Mr. Pugh is, where would I wear these exactly? Beyond the undead make-up and Derelicte-meets-Matrix styling, these outfits are just completely unflattering. Who wants to look like a shapeless blob?

Gareth Pugh is amazing as I am also an aspiring artist. I have made one piece, a shirt, out of pants and I own a dress by Gareth which fits perfectly from the mannequin size. it is is rare to find a designer who makes clothes true to life on his models that i can wear and have it be small in size rather than most American designers who make the clothing too large. Gareth Pugh, I love your fanciful creations!
