BEYOND THE HORIZON
The Peter Pilotto spring collection seemed to reflect the passing of the day, with images of sunset, blue seas, and surf gradually darkening into a midnight sky shot with bursts of fireworks. The design duo of Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are a quiet force — their beautiful creations are so light, airy and unpretentious that it is easy to overlook how skillfully the fabric is handled and fitted. In a series of dresses, an almost invisible Lucite belt cinched an hourglass sheath with gently sculpted shoulders and peplumed hips, an emblem of their understated tailoring abilities. The duo also fashioned their own version of Rodarte’s famous collage dress, with malleable scale-printed jersey and draped panels of watercolored silks. In their agile hands, the expansive swaths of fabrics melded together seamlessly to form a real dress that fit like second skin and not merely an art project.
