It’s print or dye at Peter Pilotto, inspired by traditional Japanese ceramics and Poiret and Martino Gamper’s chair compositions. One thing is for certain, it’s working serious magic on simple dresses and tops, and gives structure -together with a feel of sharp tailoring- to jackets. Prints include rope or chain, stripes and zigzags, waves and even false pockets, before deconstructed shirts take centre stage, made into draped, asymmetric dresses or tunics. As the long, military style jackets and the maxi dresses close the show, I manage to formulate the thought gnawing at my all along: I’m afraid I might just be in need of... a pair of quilted puffa boots.
