Defying the concept of everyday wearability, 28 year old English fashion designer Gareth Pugh recently displayed a dark, Predator film inspired Fall 09 Collection.
Despite his designs favoring a more nonsensical shaped sci-fi warrior approach than most aim for when choosing an outfit, Men’s Style.com suggests opting for his, â€ shredded leggings; the hooded, draped, and tied top; maybe even the Hellraiser leather tank. And, gripped by post-apocalyptic fervor, (one) might (even) head on into the pagan country of the goat-fur tunic.’
Having debuted as a solo designer at London Fashion Week in Fall 06, Pugh has since gained critical acclaim from fashion heavy weights, such as Anna Wintour and from British Vogue – It’s agreed; Gareth Pugh is so hot right now. Without doubt, his modus operandi is not for the faint hearted but is sure to be a hit in the editorial stakes. We can see Carine Roitfeld and Hedi Slimane having a field day with this dramatic, confrontational collection. Alien inspired boots and spiked trousers, anyone?..

[Ed: Rumours abound that Pugh may replace Kris Van Assche as the head of Dior Homme. No offence to Kris Van Assche but that would be amazing!]
