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?
