London Fashion Week: Peter Pilotto Spring/Summer 2012

Everyone knows that Peter Pilotto creates gorgeous prints, and this collection sure did prove that point. Dresses and suits in psychedelic, out of the world prints opened the show in bright hues of blue, yellow and red. While the prints of flora and fauna were inspired by the duo's trip to Indonesia, they were surprisingly modern and it was a definitely fresh take on an Asian influence, away from batik prints. The best part about this collection however, was not its prints, but the use of texture with prints - crystals encrusted the necklines and skirts, PVC leaves were unfurling elsewhere and dresses had interesting cutouts that revealed lots of skin. This mixture of print and texture definitely gave the collection a new dimension and was definitely a breath of fresh air from other collections.
