LONDON, United Kingdom — The Peter Pilotto fashion show started with a very sci-fi atmosphere, with large multicoloured neon lights flashing on the ceiling, and reflecting against the large mirrors that divided the different sections in which the guests were seated, while a pounding and metallic noise reverberated through the room. Immediately after the models started coming out at an incredibly quick pace, so fast in fact it was difficult for people in the audience to take in all the details on the garments; the collection designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos was bright and colourful, from pastel tones to bright and vivid nuances. All shades were used to create landscapes and more abstract digital prints. Silhouettes were rigid and architectural, and often featured sportive details such as white, plain belts with buckles on the front so the gowns seemed striped. The pipe-like sleeves were often longer than the arms, and collars were elongated too and trimmed with sheepskin fur, the result was some fascinating hybrid creatures which are difficult to place. Dresses are decorated with geometric multicoloured applications in metallic red, gold and purple, stitched to the torso and the length of the arms. Even the casual-wear is based on contrasts, there is no sign of softness in the rib knit fabric, but a strong futuristic impression which runs through the whole collection.
