Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the designers behind the Peter Pilotto label. Pilotto is half- Austrian, half-Italian and De Vos is half-Belgian, half-Peruvian. They met whilst studying at Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the year 2000.
Peter Pilotto’s vision of womenswear embraces both new and classic perspectives on elegance. Otherworldly prints combine with soft sculptural shapes to form the handwriting of the design duo, something which evolves and is explored each season as opposed to being reactionary. Pilotto is focused toward textiles and print whereas De Vos concentrates more on silhouette and drape. However, the duo work beyond their individual perimeters to create something new, their process being very organic and beyond an integration of the two fields.
Their distinctive bold prints and designs, have caught the attention of everyone from the fashion industry and celebrities alike. Miranda Kerr, Gwen Stefani, Sienna Miller and Cate Blanchett and many, many more can be seen on the red carpet wearing Peter Pilotto.
Winning the Vogue/British Fashion Council Fashion Fund in 2014, this collection definitely deserves to be on your hit list this season!
