Peter Pilotto Prints Pop

I'm a sucker for a popping print. An outfit combining a print adds vibrancy to my day, lifts a dark mood and puts power in my stride. Whether its in colour or in black and white it definitely changes the way I feel. It exudes confidence and says a lot about a persons personality. When you combine a print with beautiful fabric and quality cut you get noticed for all the right reasons.

One of my favourite labels for a print is See by Chloé, the younger slightly less expensive Chloé line. Bold, bright prints in beautiful silk have been a feature in the See by Chloé collections. I never fail to get a compliment or enquiring stare when I wear one of their dresses.

One label renowned for its prints is Peter Pilotto. Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the designers behind the London based label whose AW08 collection was credited by as one of the ‘Ten Most Promising New Talents’. Pilotto and De Vos (who met at Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2000) compliment each other with Pilotto focusing on print and De Vos shape although it truly is a combined effort. Their Fall09 collection is inspired by science, nature and the big bang theory and you can see this in the colour blend of the print. You can just picture lava, explosions and starry constellations.

Peter Pilotto is sold exclusively in Australia at Blonde Venus in Brisbane but is also sold at Colette in Paris, Matches in London and Opening Ceremony in NY, LA and online.
