London Fashion Week: Giles and Peter Pilotto
Flower power from the Seventies seemed to take over Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos' SS15 offering, from a psychedelic colour palette to folk-art embellishments the groovy force was strong with this one.
Referencing the vibrant hippie-craft movement, fabrics featured black macramé straps, paisley motifs and neon 3D flowers, which adorned almost every piece in the detail-saturated collection. Stand out looks included a group of color-blocked mini-dresses that were heavily embroidered with abstract paisley patterns and shiny patchwork style coats made from iridescent organza.
With the sounds of the jungle playing in the background, Giles Deacon took an adventurous route for Spring/Summer 15, using the rainforest as his wild inspiration.
The designer created several looks, including oversize T-shirts worn as mini-dresses and flimsy silk gowns, with decorations of sketched tiger paw in pastel colours. While digitally deconstructed images of tigers were printed across chic ballgowns. A metallic snake print also slithered its way on to feminine frocks and coats. In addition to flower appliqués stitched on leather dresses for a less edgy and more feminine spirit.
