THE DARK KNIGHT: Gareth Pugh, who plans to show spring collection in Paris on Sept. 27 after winning the city’s $230,000 Andam award, says he won’t temper his famously dark vision for the City of Light. “It’s going to be the same sort of thing as I would show here,” said the designer as he sipped Perrier from the front row of Giles Deacon’s show last week. “It’s a lot bigger and there’s a lot more work involved, but it’s the same show.” Note to fashion editors: Prepare yourselves for a mind-bending experience. In the past Pugh has used human hair, paper clips and what looked like stuffed white mice.
