Peter Pilotto SS/11

Another fabulous Topshop sponsored london fashion week show.

This morning it was Peter Pilotto's turn of showing his inspirational looks for SS/11.

Again the show was held in the yummy location of the old eurostar building (with yesterdays Richard Nicoll beautiful show too) and again there was a plethora of sheer fabric gracing the catwalk.

The first look out was predominantly white (deja vu from yesterday anyone?) and absolutely gorgeous, when the model turned to walk back up the runway, the stunning,sensual detailing began to unravel: the back were of sheer fabric, it just looked stunning.

Throughout the show there was a lot of feminine shapes and textures, as mentioned the key fabric being sheer chiffon but we also saw soft suede, stretchy, slouchy jersey and some fab trousers, mostly white but with a huge shot of colour at the side seams, almost like what the fashionable crowd (but skint) people of the 1970's did to their 60's trousers to bring them up to trend-sew in more fabric to widen the shape and silhouette.

Pilotto played with proportion too which was cute and there was plenty of wrapping of textures over one another. Another trend I think we will see for SS/11 is the slashed skirt, Pilotto slashed the bottom of his long skirts (not midi,not maxi) right up to the thigh.

The collection looked very wearable, the women looked effortlessly stunning with a scruffy chignon and middle parting, and minimal make-up.

A great show for proportion play and playful with colour and tonal shades.
