This year Gareth Pugh decided to ditch the runway during Paris Fashion Week and instead wowed his pupil with a video presentation. If you don't have 11 uninterrupted minutes to spare, don't watch it now. It deserves your undivided attention, so come back when you do have free time. Yes, it's THAT glorious!
I don't even know where to begin... my brain is still trying to process the high level of greatness I just witnessed. I feel like I was sucked into the matrix and watched this super-cyborg-woman-samurai-assassin from the year 3050. And the movement, oh the mothaloving movement!! It was crazy, intrusive, quixotic, and altogether grandiose. It made the architectonic cutting and fluidity of the clothes come both psychotically and mercurially alive. I was unquestionably hypnotized and dumbstruck. Gareth Pugh, Ruth Hogben (producer), and Kristen McMenamy (model), I give you a standing ovation for that blissful fashionable mindfuck!!! BRA-THEFUCKING-VO!!
