Duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos never shy away from a bold print, however there was something bolder about the Pilotto woman that was sent down the runway this season. Materials evolved through this collection with the ever present prints being newly engineered over layers of lace. Furthermore the clean lines of previous seasons were replaced by big shapes; a-line skirts, boxy sleeves and multi-layered jackets. The colour palette broke into newly neon territory, opening with a series of perfectly captured green looks which evolved into blue, then to pink and finally into orange.
Pilotto's digital dexterity has always been their calling card and their strength lies within pushing their clothes into new territories. We saw it here; geometric, sharp lined sweaters layered over organza, laser printed floral skirts which encompassed a whole range of colour. The Pilotto woman has always been bold, but the SS14 woman is carrying a new kind of strength. It's exciting to see the brand pushing into new territory, especially after rising so fast through the London fashion ranks. The new sights at Pilotto were a reminder to even the best that creativity and innovation can always boost the brand.
