The first photo of Gareth Pugh's Christmas tree for Topshop has been released and boy, will it make you shiver. If there ever were an emblem for the fashion industry's cold side--this would be it. Between pvc leggings and studded seven-inch heels we're starting to feel saturated with fashion's, well, mean side. And, like all meaningless acts against such things, we responded with the most fluttery of Spring 09 shows, namely, that of Sonia Rykiel. After all, what better way to improve Pugh's tree than to put the dancing, feathered Rykiel girls metaphorically in front of it. We recommend you check out both shows, which were, all joking aside, fantastic. The Spring Sonia Rykiel gallery is here, and the Gareth Pugh gallery here.
