FUTURE WARRIORS

Paris: Gareth Pugh opened the show with what could have been misconstrued as a monster costume, were it not fashioned entirely in glossy fur. Moving on to full-skirted, spiked shoulder dresses, the theme took form — these were apocalyptic women warriors — and the two-tone atmosphere of grey and black made it clear that these were hardened souls. A definite air of protection, so prevalent this season, permeated things — chin-length funnel necks, second-skin leather leggings and body-obstructing silhouettes gave the models a “don’t mess with me” feel. In all the futuristic drama, there were a wearable items too, like satin tunics and body-con sheaths. Maybe the boots will even catch on; they appeared to be panels of fabric that were simply pulled up around the foot and tied below the knee.  —Anna Jane Davis
