About Us

Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the creative force behind the luxury womenswear label Peter Pilotto. 

Pilotto is half-Austrian, half-Italian and De Vos is half-Belgian, half-Peruvian. Their fusion of cultures is reflected on their catwalk; constructed silhouettes, couture fabrics and intricate prints are all part of the label’s DNA.

Pilotto first showed at London Fashion Week in September 2008, with the support of the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN scheme. In 2009 they received the Swarovski award for “Emerging Talent: Womanswear”; in 2011 they received the Fashion Forward sponsorship for their Spring/Summer 2012 collection, supported by the British Fashion Council. In 2014 they were awarded the prestigious British Fashion Council/VOGUE Fashion Fund and, most recently, in May 2015 were awarded the Inaugural Swarovski Collective Award. These awards reflect the unique viewpoint the designers bring to fashion.

Peter Pilotto is sold in over 50 countries worldwide, and is featured at over 220 retailers including: Selfridges in London; Le Bon Marché in Paris; Bergdorf Goodman in New York; and Joyce and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and China.
