London: After being inspired by the reflection of fireworks on water for their the spring collection, the duo behind Peter Pilotto turned towards the more urbane influences of Modernist architecture and Seventies interiors for fall. With those references in hand came a dose of reality, as the team grounded their usual mix of draped cocktail frocks with tailored separates fit for day or night. Pants ranged from the skinny-legged leather sheaths of an urban warrior to flattering brocade high-waisted trousers. Dainty pencil skirts received the special Pilotto touch with wrapped panels draped over belts and insets of lightning-silver PVC, while jackets were masterfully shaped out of panels of Harris tweed, leather and fox fur. At the core of it all, the label’s trademark texture prints and freeform yet strategically-placed fabric collages gave the collection a consistent visual rhythm. Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the collection was the color palette, which was inspired by the tastefully-worn interiors of early Woody Allen films. Rusty earth tones and greys warmed the futuristic tendencies of the collection, while surprising flashes of bright tangerine provided just enough punch to keep it utterly cool.
