In case any of you hadn’t realised yet, I LOVE Peter Pilotto. Then again, who doesn’t? This uber talented design duo have been setting the fashion world on fire – cheesy metaphor I know but appropriate in this case I feel - and judging by their resort 2013 collection, the best is yet to come.
I was lucky enough to sneak a peak at the collection at Starworks‘ resort press day the other week and can confirm that every look is even more mesmerizing up close. So enamoured was I with Peter Pilotto’s latest offerings that after nearly an hour’s ogling, I basically had to be escorted from the building.
Vivid, graphic and oh-so-covetable, Peter Pilotto has taken digital print to the next level with these mesmerizing confections. Pared with slicked back hair and sculpted silhouettes, Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos have taken the past few seasons’ two hottest trends, sports luxe and pattern clashing, to create something unique and undeniably beautiful. On paper, combining quite this many colours should spell disaster or at least a bad headache but season after season, Peter Pilotto’s razor sharp cuts keep things sleek and strikingly elegant.
After one too many glasses of Prosecco at a Peter Pilotto private sale evening a few months back, I ended up ordering rather more pieces than was strictly sensible from their AW12 collection. Judging by the fact they’ve added super cute collars to a number of their resort looks, this pre-season could spell financial disaster. Then again, if I owned even one of these kaleidescopic creations I highly doubt I’d care about paying my phone bill.
Love Ella. X
