Gareth Pugh To Show At Pitti W-------
Announced this morning: Gareth Pugh will be the next designer to show his collection at Pitti W, the womenswear portion of Pitti Immagine in Florence this January. (He follows Haider Ackermann, who showed women’s and his first men’s collection last January, and Proenza Schouler, Giles Deacon, and Giambattista Valli before him.) In selecting Pugh, Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine’s communications director, cites his evolving aesthetic and his multidisciplinary presentation style, like the film he screened in Paris for Spring ’11. Stay tuned for more details on what he’s got in store for Pitti in January, and in the meantime, check out Pugh’s past collections here.
