Today was a MASSIVE day at London Fashion Week, and in the interest of getting straight to the point – I thought I’d do something different for Peter Pilotto Spring 2015 RTW Collection. When it comes to heavy prints, sometimes to me it really works, and other times things are a bit off. It’s definitely a very precise art to nail a print, and Pilotto may be the biggest master of all time. That said, the runway did contain a few looks that were a bit ‘wonky’, shall I say? (Wonky!)
Where there was wonky though, there was also brilliant!
And so, I’ve whittled down the collection to a Top 5 Best and Top 5 Worst Looks of Peter Pilotto Spring 2015. Let’s get started – because there is Tom Ford to come. (Deep breaths!)
TOP 5 BEST LOOKS
I like to think if we ever make it to the year 4500, people will be walking around wearing Peter Pilotto designs. More specifically I envision the far left look to be the standard everyday look. Basically like, in loo of khakis and jeans people will be wearing metallic, psychedelic space suits. I love the blend of easy breezy with rather form-fitting and structured frocks. In true Pilotto fashion everything is loud, but also very controlled. I think that’s what makes his designs work or not work, the control factor. Is the look reigned in? If yes, we’ve got a winner!!
If it’s NOT reigned in, well, then you have this:
TOP 5 WORST LOOKS
Yea, these are a bit all over the place. I do find it absolutely hilarious that one beautiful model has to walk around wearing a neon menorah emblazoned on her chest. It’s nice to know in the land of raves and psychedelic activity, all faiths are recognized. Freedom of religion y’all!
In general, these all miss the mark because of how thrown together they are. Particularly the center look seems really off to me. At first I thought, oh, it’s just the length. If it was a bit shorter I would like it! But then I sat down my glass of Cabernet for a closer look, where I realized the skirt is may be the most hideous print I have ever seen. It looks like supremely depressing Christmas wrapping paper. And who wants that?
But major kudos to the sandals! I honestly have never much paid attention to the footwear of a Peter Pilotto show (obviously distracted by the loud prints happening), but now that I have I will make a point to. They are super fun! I actually think they would look great in the colder months paired with some super opaque black tights. Sandals for every season!
