Gareth Pugh is showing his Spring 09 collection during Paris Fashion Week rather than London. In an interview for the newly refurbished Dazed Digital, Susanna Lau speaks with Pugh about the transition. Our favorite question from Lau is "Do you ever get tired of yourself?" to which Pugh replies, "that’s the annoying thing where you have all these people helping you but they can’t do it as well as you know you could do."
Speaking of fashion people with tireless self confidence, in a recent interview with Refinery 29, model Erin Wasson told the hip what it takes to be fashionable. When asked which trend she'd most like to see fade away, she replied, "Leggings, dude. If I see one more girl showing off her bad ankles, I'm going to vomit. It's just not cute.". Talk about tact! We don't know about you guys but we now officially dislike this woman.
Cintra Wilson made it over to the Rick Owens store in Tribeca with an Owens enthusiast, who shared stories of Michele Lamy as they tried on various garments. Funny how Wilson can wrap her mind around a 65,000 dollar Owens jacket though the OAK store on Bond Street kind of blew her mind.
Three of the four WWD headlines this morning report economic decline. Take it away...Liz Claiborne Reports Loss, Macy's Profits, Sales Fall, and Apparel, Textile Imports from China Fall. Hey, don't be such a worry wart! In their splash they ease the consumer conscious with loungewear for Resort. It's all about balance, folks.
