Vivid designs, mesmerising motifs, bold and thoroughly refreshing. These are some of the words that come to mind when describing Peter Pilotto’s Spring 2013 collection. I have been dreaming about this collection ever since I saw it a few weeks ago. The aesthetic inspiration represents one of old world charm meeting the new age. The colours seem to purposefully drag you all over the world from Europe to South America to Africa or India. There is a lot going on with each piece, a mish-mash of total exaggeration with contrasting silhouettes , ruffles, baroque, ornate diamonds, abstract to art deco-ish zig zags and trumpet hemlines. Yet there is a dignified demureness to it all. Magic.
