Gareth Pugh Denies Alexander McQueen Succession Talks

>> Much speculation has identified Gareth Pugh and Olivier Theyskens as two possible frontrunners to take over creative direction of Alexander McQueen's label, and over the weekend, the Telegraph UK reported that Gucci Group owner PPR had indicated Pugh as the desired successor.

Last night, however, Pugh's PR company, Mandi Lennard Publicity, issued a statement in rebuttal: "To speculative reports earlier this week, Gareth Pugh is not in discussions with Gucci Group about a Creative Director role at Alexander McQueen."

Meanwhile, the last collection McQueen worked on — which is believed to have been mostly finished before his death — will be shown in "a series of low-key, private, salon presentations this week," the Telegraph UK notes.
