Collection We Covet: Peter Pilotto

By Siobhan Lam

One of my absolute favourite colour combinations of all time is the powerful pairing of aqua blue and dark navy – in my humble opinion this is the most stunning and complementary colour combo EVER.  No doubt many would disagree but to me it positively screams SPRING! NEW! BRIGHT! BEAUTIFUL!

Designer label Peter Pilotto kindly took this information on board and incorporated it into their stunning Spring 2011 line.

The collection is no one thing, – it referenced sportswear, menswear, the beauty of a stark white palette, as well as the “chic minimalism of Seventies Yves Saint Laurent and his playfully polished lady”.

Draping and prints also featured heavily in this collection – the label teamed their intriguing yet always wearable prints with cropped biker jackets – a playful way to bring any outfit from day to night.

Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the design duo behind Peter Pilotto; they met when they were both studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.

The fashion label was launched in spring 2008 and since its launch it has been recognised as a rising authority in the fashion world, it is renowned for its use of vibrant prints which are often created through taking inspiration from natural elements – celebrities such as Kate Bosworth (pictured), Michelle Obama, Kirsten Stewart, Claudia Schiffer, Rihanna, Sienna Miller and Kim Kardashian are all fans of the label.

A lot of attention is being paid to Prada and Celine this season, which is understandable, nobody does block colour and neutral shades quite like them – however if you have a extra couple of shekels this season and want to invest in a piece that will be just as desirable and relevant now as it will be in ten years time, look to Peter Pilotto – the future fashion power.

Peter Pilotto silk dresses start at €1375 and are available in Ireland at Brown Thomas.
