Runway Report: Peter Pilotto

It’s true, dream team Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos see the world through primary-colored glass. In their eclectic fall 2016 collection, the duo played with whimsy embroidery and multi-level layering. A rainbow of blues played off of stark whites and powerful maroons throughout many of the looks, while some opted for dreamy pastels and metallic shine.

The embroidered detailing of the jackets, skirts, and dresses are perhaps most successful in this collection. Unafraid to mix bold colors and texture, lavender purple appliqués pop nicely off of deep maroons in the jackets and skirts, while multi-colored brocades dance on solid black dress silhouettes. Pilotto’s fall 2016 proved that there can be a tasteful balance between multilayers and multicolors, and how lucky we are to have experienced his kalediscope world.
