The Silk So Fine team has just returned from London Fashion Week and I am keen to share with you the first reflection on one of my number one collections. I just could not hold back conceiving my thoughts into words when it comes to the latest Peter Pilotto collection. I love Spain, El Greco, Art Nouveau, voluminous minimalism in silhouettes and arty excess in details; and when all these essentials merged in one collection in the right proportions, I call it masterpiece. The collection showcases exceptional artwear pieces and leaving nothing to a chance; origami fold dresses, cropped boleros and capes recall the colour palette of a 17th century El Greco painting. A contemporary edge was added to the collection through the great futuristic eyes of the Pilotto duo, and by using rich fabrication, deconstructed elements and Art Nouveau-like prints. It was Peter Pilotto’s first AW13 collection, which varies the diverse heritage of the two designers, in which the silhouettes are blurring the boundaries of feminine and masculine, and have definitely set a fresh signature style to the designers. Among others Cara Delevingne walked for Peter Pilotto – her hair slick back in a simple ponytail and her make up flawless and natural. These artwear pieces pay homage to the Spanish art sphere that the designers have been influenced by, and yet undoubtedly lead the ones to watch list of the season.
