PETER SOM: SPRING 2010 RTW
Middle Look A Top Pick--- Trouville Stripe Day Coat...with a Chartreuse Splash Floral Charmeuse T-Shirt, Steel Digital Leopard Jacquard Skirt
Presentation: Milk Studios West 15th Street, NYC
Inspite of the major ‘tude we experienced from a black clad Allie in the lobby downstairs…Peter Som was one of our top presentations of NYFW S/S 2010, clothing wise.
Sparkling whimsy came to mind as soon as we got an eyeful of the really stunning printed fabrics that ranged from polka dot paired with leopard, to floral and marine stripe. Bright, cheerful and upbeat.
It all worked. Usually the Brits can only pull off this quirky mash up of graphics and colors…in a sophisticated manner…but Peter Som certainly did. And the polished attire was all beautifully made. Not a single loose thread anywhere.
Vintage flair cruise wear (swim shorts)-mixed up with uptown girl pouf minis with pockets, and pretty dresses -- were styled just right too.
Influences cited included Lartigue’s black and white photos of Deauville (like Lacoste another line we loved for S/S 2010), Japanese (Hokusai) delicate woodcut images, and…cruise wear like the kind our grandmother wore when sailing the QEII…meaning dress-up outfits not leisure wear velour sweats.
