Gareth Pugh Menswear Show in Paris

Fab Flash: Gareth Pugh to Show Menswear

The current economic crisis is restricting some members of the fashion industry but clearly Gareth Pugh isn't one of them. The young British designer took his collection to Paris last season and will expand again for Autumn 2009 by adding a menswear string to his bow.

Today it has been revealed that Pugh is part of the Paris menswear schedule for January planning to present at the Palais De Tokyo. He has included menswear pieces in his show before (although not for Spring 09) but this is the first time he has dedicated a whole show to men.

He explained to WWD, “Following the last show, the first show where I did not have any male models, lots of people commented on there not being any men’s wear in the collection….It felt like a good time to take on a new challenge and do a men’s wear collection. The collection will have all the staples of a men’s wear show, but obviously with my own slant."

Rick Owens will also present his first menswear line. When asked if he has any tricks up his sleeve he joked, “I don’t know how anyone can be surprised by anything anymore. Isn’t it surprise enough that I’ve picked the worst financial climate to propose men’s fashions?”

The bag that Gareth is holding here is not designed by himself. It's actually a collaboration between Longchamp and Jeremy Scott.

Ok, what is with the man bag? Is that included in his menswear? Look out D&G you're competition is non-existent- Seriously, is there no one out there who can come up with soemthing original...something fresh...something bold, brilliant and dare I say controversial? The man bag is all we can come up with? Really, anyone who knows anything about fashion is this: "Men never wear bags, flip-flops, or caps out-" But I am interesting in viewing some of his pieces- maybe something brilliant can be found...
