This morning I got up bright and early for the 9am Peter Pilotto Spring 2011 presentation which was held at the Topshop show space at the old Eurostar Waterloo terminal.
Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos were inspired by Californian retro rock climbers and their colourful sports wear. They also looked to multicoloured muscle illustrations for inspiration.
The duo’s signature prints were refreshing light on a palette of white, eggshell blues, peachy nudes, vibrant electric blue, coral, black white and beige.
I loved the sporty feel of the collection. The parachute silks kind of reminded me of the 80s shell suits, but done is a more sophisticated way.
We were presented with full-length dresses, cropped jackets with sporty panelling and zipper details, knit turtlenecks, drop-waist colour-block dresses, a double zip sleeveless jacket worn as a dress and mini print dresses.
As this collection was about sports and movement, we saw new cuts, longer refined silhouettes and fly away panels to visually illustrate speed.
The key accessories from this collection were the Nicholas Kirkwood heels which either had a hollow heel, print straps or gold details.
I really loved the large gold paper clips which were incorporated into necklines and used buckles.
Favourites: The blue, nude dress above with the pleated skirt and striped knit turtle neck with the matching pants
