Anonymous asked: I'm sure you've already hear (speed of the internet!), but what do you think of the Peter Pilloto / Target collab that was announced a couple days ago for Spring 2014? Also, thank you for making me realize how exited I am for the Peter Pilloto / Target collab!

i haven’t heard that! but we don’t have Target in the UK, and i don’t really do much highstreet shopping, most of my clothes are 2nd hand or occasionally from the internet. so.

This collection was inspired by a ceramicist named Ken Price, who was a big fan of bright colours, abstract shapes and iridescent glazes. Refreshingly obscure compared to Prabal Gurung’s Monroe-free Marilyn Monroe show, plus when you google Ken Price you can definitely see where Pilotto was coming from.

Some of these outfits aren’t the most wearable (ie, navel-bearing button-down shirts are not for the faint hearted), but the colours are amazing and I’m really into the idea of modern crinolines. It’s not immediately obvious on all the dresses, but pretty much everything here has a flexible frame under the skirt, meaning that it’ll sway dramatically when the wearer is walking. — Spring 2014: The Row, J.W. Anderson, Prabal Gurung, and Peter Pilotto, at HelloTailor.

These trousers kinda look like there’s a really fancy rainbow bullseye drawing attention to the model’s vagina, which may or may not be the classy effect the designers were originally going for… — from Resort 2013: Alexander Wang, Peter Pilotto, Zac Posen, and more.

I feel like Peter Pilotto has my beloved Mary Katrantzou to thank for a lot of these outfits. I’m not suggesting anything so drastic as plagiarism because there is a certain amount of overlap between these two designers anyway, but this particular collection did combine two of Katrantzou’s main design elements: complex digital prints, and structured minidresses. — from Resort 2013: Alexander Wang, Peter Pilotto, Zac Posen, and more.
