Peter Pilotto, spring 2013 - text by Silvia Bombardini


Dear Shaded Viewers and Diane,

Another unforgettable moment from London Fashion Week, even now when we're all so gleefully and ever so rightfully taken by Paris' roundabouts, undoubtedly was the Peter Pilotto show at the Bedford Square Gardens. The collection followed with summery awe the dainty ruffles of Italian architecture, its malicious balconies in saturated bloom, its railings and arcades, urban and endearing, with slits and sentiment, frills and flares. Serpentine vines in lemon, orange or blue found their ways between the grids, crossing the body in a silky, ruffled embrace, and then there were floating geometries and perspectives, virtuosity and diamond suits. Later, the lineup grew deeper and wilder, exotic shades, trimmed in wavy black lines or red and lilac webs. Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos' recent trip to Kolkata brought gentle beads and patience to the season, with delicate embroidery and tiny mirrors applied with pointillist elegance in between the prints.
