I had to scroll a little faster when I noticed this was so similar to last season in the fact that, unlike his first collections, this once again consists of dresses made for the red carpet or other special events, not very different than what Christopher Kane does, and I know the comparison is outrageous (Peter is extremely talented). I wonder if it isn't more viable for his small business to produce a bigger range of clothing that women that don't go to cocktail parties or premieres 4 times a week may want to wear. A great jacket, trousers, a well-cut top with amazing prints that doesn't look ridiculous in an office would kind of make me love him more, and he'd probably make quite a bit of money too. I know that requires bigger production, but.. it might be worth a shot?

aquarium is the closest thing to what i'm picturing in my head looking at it.
seems like a mix of old structures and patterns and although it's still superior to 90% of collections out there, it still doesn't feel "right" or original, so to speak. it's good, but...

I adore the prints. Some of them remind me of pandora form avatar and others remind me of totem poles.

Like Mulletproof mentioned, I'd like to see them do something that is more office/non-special event friendly clothing.

yeah i'm not fond of this direction at all. like you guys said,this looks too generic....pretty but awfully bland for what we know peter is capable of. it also feels really impersonal and more fashion-y. and speaking of which,it does make me miss those early days when peter was a bit more "anti-fashion"......when he would create these magical collections drawn from alpine folk costume and the mundane juxtapositions like cowboy boots and these crazily structured bomber jackets.

and i get the climate is still a little uncertain and maybe he's trying to gain some financial traction but peter and chris really get lost here....there's nothing about it that says peter pilotto. just playing the fashion game it feels.

terribly disappointing.
