Apocalypse Wow


Gareth Pugh has been recently touted as the designer most capable of dressing a woman for the apocalypse.

The end of the (fashion?) world looks a lot like Pierrot in dialogue with Queen Elizabeth. With a little of the Bard thrown in, as well as that doctored picture of Emily Dickinson.

No matter—I’m digging these leggings.



The best-dressed apocalypticistas might also be sporting these shoes from Ann D:


and maybe this pair from Sigerson Morrison:


as well as this machinist bracelet from Fallon:

Picture #1 makes me think of an armadillo.

enc said...

But I'll take it all anyway.

Sal said...

I'll take the shoes.

Pugh seems to borrowing a lot from Daphne Guinness as well...

I would be happy with the bracelet, xv.

i totally dig outfit 2 without the neck accessory. shoes are great though.

I prefer my architecture on buildings...not on my body.
Those outfits are unwearable...but the bracelet is way cool.

Belette--Ha! A very glamourous armadillo. And besides, I've heard that they could survive an apocalypse . . .

enc--I could especially see the first pair of shoes on you . . .

Sal--The clothes are, shall we say, a tad costumey . . .


V--thanks for the good thoughts. And welcome!

WendyB--I was so tempted by a similar pair of Sig Mor last year. And now the price has gone up by $200 (and the heels by an inch . . .)

hnstrjam--good catch on the DG connection . . . Welcome!

vicki--It *is* a cool piece . . . And bienvenue aussi.

SavvyG: The neck accessory would be very challenging to wear. I used to make something similar (an Elizabethan ruff) for my bulldogs (with the doggy pun on *Ruff!*).

Belle de ville--no doubt some edgy lass will give them a go, though. The bracelet reminds me a little of steampunk, or of an Ayn Rand novel . . .

Good call on the bracelet! It is very Dagny Taggart.

Pugh's clothes are definitely made for shock value, but the shock for me this time is that these are the most wearable-looking of his clothes that I've ever seen. But relative to other designers' work, they're still pretty unwearable (impractical). Interesting, but impractical.
