Peter Pilotto AW11
Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos were showing their Autumn/ Winter 2011 Collection this morning at the Old Billinsgate.
True to their signature style, it included many trompe l’oeil prints and diffused tie and dye patterns, but instead of minidresses, this time on long gowns, wide trousers and tunics. The genius design duo also experimented with more tailoring: calf-length military inspired coats and sleeveless tuxedo jackets were all about superposition.
Highlights of the show included a strapless gown in deep black and white tie and dye, with sky blue panels on the side, and another long number with a short hem at the front, very Balmain.
Although more severe and austere than previous collections, the designers showcased once again their craft for intricate twisted prints, statement silhouettes and engaged designs. Must-haves for next winter, I bet a lot of editors front row also wished they had one of those long navy jackets to cope with today’s weather!
