(NEW YORK) Peter Som
Peter Som was once a cocktail and evening man, but if the last three collections are any indication, the designer is hell-bent on becoming a day dresser. The term "quirky," though overused, is an apt way to describe Fall, which is governed by a mish-mash of brights and prints and textures and sparkles and even fur. It's a complicated look, even for Margot Tenenbaum. But daring sophisticates are sure to love the neon furs, floor-grazing chiffon skirts and slim-fit cardigans, which are best worn belted. But this is one designer who can really cut a dress--not to mention the wonders he can work with a gown--and the social darlings he dresses could potentially be left in a lurch.
