LONG AND LOOSE
London: Still relative newcomers, design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos have already nailed down a handful of signatures, including elegant draping, texture prints and engineered sweaters. All three were showcased in their current collection, along with precise tailoring, a new element for the label. The collection began with an all-white look – a sophisticated coat over a draped crepe top and loose pants with a crossover waist that recalled Thai fisherman styles; the serene solids were a surprise for fans of the label’s standout prints. They appeared soon enough, this time in chain link and spiky windowpane motifs, as well as dreamy tie-dyed effects inspired by Japanese shiburi techniques. The long and loose silhouettes were of-the-moment, adding even more appeal to the compelling prints and drapery.
