Paris Fashion Week SS12: Gareth Pugh, Balmain, Pedro Lourenço

Who: Gareth Pugh
What it made us think of: graph paper
What we liked: strong lines, crazy makeup, fun hair, purple!, boots,'s hilarious attempts to categorize the looks. Pugh was veering into Rick Owens territory, so I'm happy he took a big step back to bizarre.
Who: Balmain
What it made us think of: Balmain's taken their rock show to Memphis.
What we liked: strong-shouldered jackets, gold detailing, leather cutout pants, high waists (no more hip bones), cuff bracelets
What we didn't: I've seen this on conservative, middle-aged church ladies here in Indiana and I'm guessing they didn't pay several grand for it. Most of the denim elicits the same reaction.
Who: Pedro Lourenço
What it made us think of: High glam hiking
What we liked: vest/jackets, fringe, the right touch of glitter, shoes
What we didn't: What's the square patch on the belts? The fringe looks like grass skirts.
