Museo Salvatore Ferragamo
Florence, Italy

Housed just downstairs from the company’s flagship boutique on Florence’s ultra-chic Via dei Tornabuoni, the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo pays tribute to this legendary Italian fashion company’s products — and the global celebrities who helped make them famous.

Peter Pilotto Fall 2012

Peter Pilotto’s Christopher De Vos and Peter Pilotto continue to be one of the bright spots on the London calendar and a runaway shows favorite of the British press. With more collections like fall, it’s well deserved praise. Their inspiration was Asian art and architecture. Their lineup was sexy and bold.

They channeled the bright neon lights of Japan into stripes and abstracts printed on skin-tight t-shirts and paneled skirts. There were shades of Nicolas in the strong attitude of the girls. The duo took the turtleneck and turned it into a sultry velvet look for evening, its bodice a structured lattice of straps and and cut-outs. Skinny cropped pants, t-shirts and dresses were worked in big florals. When sleeves didn’t hug shoulders and arms, they were pumped up. The same lean lines applied to evening, a gray floor-grazing look paneled with what looked like skewed neon lighting.
