Wonderful as always. Feral. Mammal later becoming bird.

I just didn't feel I saw any new ideas from Gareth this season.

This collection just feels redundant. It's just a compilation of his recent collections. Gareth used to be all about drama and theatricality. Now it seems as if he's just doing collections that please Rick Owens.

Oooh good call. I don't really want to be harsh about Gareth. We do have to keep a sense of perspective. We need people who pull from dark edges. Maybe the land needs a fallow season in seven.

But yet I sort of can't say you're wrong. Although Rick is his mentor after all. It kind of just elevates Rick's status. And at a time when he's just very on form.

But no big deal. I still really like Gareth. Would like to see him differentiate by focusing on his English roots. I still see him as a medium term successor at McQueen.

I always have a soft spot for Gareth, but I often find myself wishing that he would let go and dare to take things that little bit further, and produce something exceptional... not something shocking for the sake of it, but a collection where you can really feel him pushing his talent further.

Somehow it feels the same and different at the same time. I like this actually.

I don't really like the dust mop coats and skirts. But I do like the shredded leather pieces. I agree however that there's nothing really new or exciting in this collection. I enjoyed Pugh much more when his shows were more conceptual and when he was pushing it a bit more to the edge. We all know he can design wonderful leather jackets and coats and wedge boots and I find myself lusting after them season after season on LVR/Antonioli/TheCorner but why not try some new silhouettes, play around with the volumes and take some risks for the RTW show? I feel like Gareth Pugh could afford to do that because he never relied on wearability that much and he has such a strong vision that sadly often doesn't come across in the way the collections are presented anymore. I think he's one of the most talented young designers around and I believe he's capable of doing so much more than this. Hopefully he'll break out of his shell soon, before it all gets a bit too boring because it's becoming so repetitive and redundant.
