Gareth Pugh’s Gorgeously Nutty Ballet Costume for Carbon Life

Mark Ronson Gareth Pugh fashion ballet absolutely fabulous Brilliant British wackadoodle Gareth Pugh is the costume designer for a new Wayne McGregor ballet scored by Mark Ronson that premieres tomorrow at the Royal Opera House in London. From The Telegraph: “This slightly alarming image – how on earth is he going to dance in that? – is the first glimpse of the 31-year-old’s contribution to the production, named Carbon Life. Pugh’s oeuvre has always been outré – inflatable dresses and rat-festooned coats – so he was never going to be content churning out froufrou tutus. Which is why McGregor chose him. ‘Wayne’s only thing was to say that he never works with point shoes and tutus,’ says Pugh. ‘He really wanted to see what my version of those things would be. And the point shoe may look restrictive, but it’s made in such a way the foot can do everything that it needs to do.’ Pugh used to dance himself, so speaks with some authority. Apparently, the pirouetting dancers ‘haven’t had any problems’ with the outfits.” Can’t wait to see the rest.
