It comes to no surprise that the Sunderland born designer has yet again caught eyes and turned the most stylish of heads at Fashion Week. Pugh is known for his unique and eccentric pieces, and has previously dressed Lady Gaga, making us so proud of his North-East background.

The show was held at Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden, which was decked in elegant marble to match the classic designs which Pugh brought to the runway.

It looks as though the camel coat is set to survive another autumn winter season in the fashion world, as Pugh gave the jacket a military feel with a double breasted construction and golden uniform buttons. The camel trend was also incorporated into a full outfit, with matching flared pants which trailed along as models strutted down the catwalk.

Shawl style tops and cape coats were prominent in the same shade, giving a flattering tailored look.

The subtle palette of nude and camel tones was soon brightened up, as sparks of electric blue brought a colour-pop to Pugh’s autumn winter collection.

The silhouettes also changed to form 80s’ style power suits, with fitted waists and subtle shoulder-pads.

The suits were embellished in shining silver stars, this detail was carried across the collection onto different pieces including a trouser suit and a silky shawl, also presented in bright blue.

In true North East style, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini supported Pugh on the front row in a strapless grey pencil dress and black heels. Lara Stone and L’Oreal’s general manager Adrien Koskas also made an appearance at the show.

Models were accessorised with distinctive circle hats which carried the same pattern as the outfit they were wearing. Their eyes were covered with sunglasses which complemented the glossed dark lips. Hair was styled in a vintage Teddy Girl style with twisted curls, which added authenticity to the collection.

Pugh took contouring that one step further by placing string across models faces to create a striking look to define cheekbones. However, one accessory which had everyone talking was the Hannibal Lecter inspired masks which gave the catwalk a sinister but strangely stylish undertone.
