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

I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are
working with? I’m having some small security issues
with my latest website and I would like to find something
more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with
your blog. It seems like some of the written text in your
posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this
happen before. Thank you
