Peter Pilotto

Peter Pilotto presented his cruise/resort 2012 collection.

New York: Though the optic works of Belgian artist Walter Leblanc and California beach culture inspired the vivid color palette of Peter Pilotto and co-designer Christopher De Vos’ first-ever C/R 12 collection, prints, precise tailoring and draped silhouettes epitomized the fairly young British label’s already signature aesthetic. Telescopic views of fabric were printed in clashing brights and intense, pure colors drawn from nature, while some tailored pieces were offered in striking solids. Prints undoubtedly took center stage, but artful fabric manipulations (another Pilotto trademark) provided pleasing updates to classic silhouettes. –Whitney Kessler
