>> Maybe Gareth Pugh's trademark inflatable pieces will finally blow up... in sales, that is. Pugh has found a backer in Michele Lamy, who has already seen commercial success working with Rick Owens. "Michele piecked out all the best bits I've done for the past four seasons," Pugh told Style.com. "She's taken all of my homemade efforts and is making them in cashmere, leather, and mink. Major stuff." If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how Pugh's designs translate into commercial bits of cashmere, leather, and mink.
