PETER PILOTTO WOMEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 – LONDON FASHION WEEK
Posted on September 28, 2012
Check out the images from the Peter Pilotto Spring/Summer 2013 womenswear show at London Fashion Week, with some of my key notes on colours and influences below.
Psychedelic prints and peplums juxtaposed with nonchalant models conveying a Renaissance-like purity formed Peter Pilotto’s Spring/summer collection. The predominating black and white latticed colour palette was intermixed with strips of lilac, fuschia, neon yellow, red, blue and orange through extreme “mix n’ match” prints that verged on optical illusions, while the primary focus was on the experimentation with volume and classical techniques that were almost “leaning on couture”. There were corsets being deployed beneath dresses, intricate beading and embroidery from their travels to India added a third dimension to their fanatical pairing of prints, frill details from the waist, hems, oversized bell sleeves and tiered skirts, cross draped dresses and cinched waists. It really was “a multi-dimensional collage of disparate visual elements”, but executed as one complete story.
