Gareth Pugh Autumn 2009 Menswear, Paris Fashion Week

Gareth Pugh's Menswear Fashion Week Debut

Gareth Pugh made his menswear fashion week debut last night (an hour late) in Paris. He has previously included menswear in his collections in London but this is the first time he has dedicated an entire collection to men. The show ended the menswear fashion show season and was arguably one of the most exciting. It was witnessed by Daphne Guinness, Jefferson Hack and Delphine Arnault, daughter of Bernard Arnault, who rules the LVMH luxury goods company. This provoked a lot of rumours about the future of Pugh's label suggesting that he might be about to join the LVMH group.

For the rest of the images and my thoughts on his collection, just

.

His collection was very refreshing and exciting. It stayed true to Pugh's quirky, avant garde style, but was also quite commercially viable with classic tailoring and funky outerwear. There was plenty of geometric detailing and quilting as Pugh played with proportion. There was also a very industrial feel to the pieces which were oil-slick and used nails as unusual applique.

These hard details were softened with tunics in fox and goat-hair that added a historical presence to the line. Head dresses were designed by London milliner Stephen Jones.

Pugh told the Telegraph that there is a "steady flow" of design ideas for his menswear line as he's designing for himself adding, "they're the kind of clothes I'd like to see in the shops". He wanted the collection to look sharp and modern but "not in a futuristic way". Pugh explained further stating that it looks like, "Something that is naturally occurring rather than something which just landed from Mars".

The models were dressed as knights in shining armour, but could Pugh himself be the knight in shining armour, here to rescue the damsel that is menswear?
