Peter Pilotto Spring/Summer 2014 RTW

Peter Pilotto Spring 2014 RTW SCREAMS SPRING!  Fresh pastels in blue and green hues, crisp white and vivacious violets are sprinkled throughout the collection.  Body-baring mini skirts, cutout dresses, cap sleeves and slinky spaghetti straps leave plenty of room to get your much anticipated tan on!  But it was the exaggerated hourglass silhouettes and digital prints that made this a signature collection.

Designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos say they took inspiration from L.A. based artist Ken Price, a ceramicist, or pottery maker.  Creating a sense of depth through illusion, the design duo mastered Price’s hypnotic aesthetic.  One web-like print theme gives the illusion of a staircase, which looks really cool because various angles are intertwined in one garment.  Plus these geometric patterns are mingled with traditional spring florals for a season appropriate yin-yang effect.

You’ll notice two different skirt types, the pencil and A-line skirt, both exaggerated.  Triangle patchwork hugged the sides of the pencil skirt, as well as an additional tier of fabric at the back creating a hi-lo.  The A-line skirts carried the same hi-lo theme, some in a sculpted, futuristic fashion.  Others A-line skirts were designed in a more delicate style, featuring an off-center front ruffle, lace embroidery and modern crinolines.  If you want to channel this collection, experiment with geometric prints and full A-line skirts in bright tone.  And don’t forget to try the Karl Lagerfeld collar like Cara Delevingne!  See my favorite picks from the collection, and stop at Target to get a piece of the action yourself!
