Gareth Pugh Fall 2016 ready-to-wear London Fashion Royal Blue Star Studded Looks.
“Many designers have taken on the theme of female power. Pugh was reckoning with female authority, which is something else. Women have always exercised various forms of power, but asserting a claim to be in charge—to wear the pants, as it were—is something else, and Pugh did well to address himself to the theme. Pugh’s pants were flared, and came topped by fitted jackets with shoulders like daggers. One version of the look was royal blue and star-spangled, which stage-winked at the one particular woman asserting a claim to be in charge who likely inspired this collection. Pugh wouldn’t admit it outright, but if there’s a fashion god in this world, when Hillary Clinton wins the 2016 election she’ll wear Pugh’s immaculately tailored flag suit to her inauguration.” via Vogue
