Fit And Flare

The BFC Fashion Forward winning duo Peter Pilotto's Spring/Summer 12' collection was simply mesmerising. 
As your immediate attention was brought to the fantastically bold prints you couldn't help but focus on the tailoring and shaping details. I felt a very architectural flare running throughout within the asymmetric cuts and shapes, although femininity was not lost. The classic pencil silhouettes and nipped in waists whispered back to trends of the 40's although, modernism was definitely key with the use of print and open work  fabrics and embroidery. I would say this collection had a strong tribal , exotic edge with a daring dash of surrealism. ( referring to shadows and silhouettes of indigenous flowers and white waves ). 
The duo certainly tied this collection in neatly with the earlier Pre-Spring collection. However the flower power prints, kaleidoscope graphic digital use and sexy open work combination made it for me. 

Ultimately the drama the flounced flared skirts and dresses bring shouted volumes. 
These designers know what their women need!
  “She is beyond pure classification of age or style, just like the clothes themselves.”
