NYFW: Peter Som Provides Plenty of Pattern

NYFW: Peter Som Provides Plenty of Pattern

Peter Som's runway show provided a fascinating tension between a variety of bold contrasts. As Som explained following the show, his inspiration for the show emerged in the tension between the structured, geometric silhouettes of the 60s and the free-flowing, bohemian silhouettes of the late 70s. Likewise, there was a contrast in material between a leather A-line miniskirt or a structured blue overcoat and a feather ruffled skirt or a flowing silk gown. Similarly bright floral patters and extravagant leopard prints were contrasted with muted blues and solid blacks to emphasize the tension inherent in the collection. Mid-length black leather boots predominated. In the contrast between the bohemian and the structured, the reserved and the exuberant, Som captured something of the intensity of a New York fall in all its rousing changes and brilliant color transformations.
