Recently following Peter Pilotto‘s collections, each time I come to realise that it’s a new match made in heaven. Pilotto doesn’t do shine nor trousers, but instead explosive prints and highly voluminous dresses. The volumed effect was inspired by the L.A.-based artist, Ken Price ceramicist, who was particularly clever at creating a sense of depth and dappled variety in his glazes. The most emphasized shape among the pieces was a sculpted bell-shaped-skirt through exploring the boundaries of futuristic versus cute and leaving a rather contradictory stamp for the season. The perfectly rounded forms and electric digital prints combinations recalled a proper vibrant feast for the eyes, this time a more eye-catching than an any practical one. I’d just certainly congratulate, cause the duo dared to show a new-idealism of being fresh and innovative, but still classic and stylish!
Immer wenn ich in letzter Zeit Peter Pilottos Kollektionen verfolge, komme ich zu dem Schluss, dass einfach jede himmlisch ist! Pilotto steht weder für Glanz noch für Hosen, aber stattdessen für explosive Prints und höchst voluminöse Kleider. (more…)

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.
