The news is especially exciting given Pugh’s reputation as a consistently envelope-pushing, innovative designer. Since Slimane’s departure, Dior Homme has had difficulty reestablishing its profile as a fashion house to watch. But this changing of the guard could do just that. Also making waves (though significantly less avant-garde waves) in the menswear department is Jack Spade. The designer who built his brand on accessories will now be expanding into apparel, says Women’s Wear Daily. Meaning, if Pugh’s porcupine-like leather pants and peek-a-boo chain-mail tops aren’t exactly your thing, Spade will soon have you covered.
