Runway Report: Peter Pilotto SS17

The creative geniuses behind Peter Pilotto, know no bounds when it comes to prints and colors. Their SS17 collection was brighter than usual and the South American influence came through via palm tree prints on long floaty dresses and floor-length gold lace skirts followed by a good amount of off-the-shoulder fashion and reworked denim with frayed edges.

Working with bold hues, Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos played with cleverly layered textures to show off their Peruvian and Columbian inspiration. A multi-colored gingham shirt dress was placed over a bright blue crochet midi-top, finished with a khaki waist-belt, this was followed by a one-shoulder bandeau top in magenta, blue and white paired with cropped, bright pink lace pants with art-inspired applique badges.

Peter Pilotto is the epitome of a worldly grounded brand. A brand who’s gatekeepers originate from Austrian-Italian (Pilotto) and Peruvian-Belgian (De Vos) descent and look beyond this for muses that they always credit in their clothes. A label that works with its strengths to bring fashion fans globally inspired ready-to-wear from their East London studio. It can’t get much more worldly than that.
