Peter Pilotto - London Spring 2010
(LONDON) The duo behind Peter Pilotto showcased their vibrant summer clothes in the back of a record shop in Soho. Inspired by sun-bleached landscapes of lands far away, they featured masterful prints that resembled fireworks on backgrounds of lightweight chiffon, silk and knitwear. The duo's draped silhouettes featured a trompe d'oeil effect to replicate a stiff canvas, while an industrial mesh print resembled heavy tweed. The structure of the clothes - nipped-in waists, spiked shoulders - confirmed that these two bright young things on the London scene are ones to watch (that, and the fact that Anna Wintour attended their 9 a.m. show).
