The Peter Pilotto designers, are masters of aesthetic chaos. Their vision for SS15 is a roguish spectacle of multicolored geometric shapes, floral motifs and chunky, biker silhouettes. Peter Pilotto’s, boxy dresses are adorned with bold, signature prints, embellishment and leaf motifs that could resurrect a new age Woodstock and the free spirits of the 70s.
Angular handkerchief hems and high waisted bell bottoms continue the boho chic vibe, while the vivid, wild spectrum of colours sees the models sashay down the run way like progressive birds of paradise.
Despite the stocky, sculptural silhouettes on show (consisting mainly of block dresses and skirt combinations) there is an underlying essence of feminity, beautifully complimenting the strong, independant ambiance of the collection as a whole.
There is nothing distinctly suprising about the Peter Pilotto show. That same lust for colour and print is more evident than ever and strong, imposing silhouettes are still laced with a sexual edge – but it works. The collection is essentially flawless and once again showcases the abilities of the two designers behind the label to seamlessly blend their array of cultural influences and specialisms into one magical creation.
Should there ever be a reason not to like Peter Pilotto? They haven’t given us one yet.
