Coutura's Current Obsession: Peter Pilotto

Guys, I am extremely hard to please. My favorite designer is Karl Lagerfeld, who is a complete genius that I had the pleasure of meeting (said meeting induced a lapse in breathing and speaking English) and yet even sometimes I'm not happy with his collections. So when I find a designer and obsess over him, he's something special.

Meet Peter Pilotto. While shopping on Net-a-porter.com, I came across the London brand's amazing draped dresses with pops of energetic color and slices of emboldened prints. I fell deeply in love. Among the qualities that make the line simply irresistible, fit is a skill designers, Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, have truly mastered. The flattering silhouettes are a testament to their keen understanding of a woman's physique.

Take a gorgeous painting (let's say, the brainchild of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko) and compress it into a short, sultry frock and you've got Peter Pilotto's latest dresses in nutshell.

A genius when it comes to patchwork, no fabric is too conservative or too futuristic for Pilotto to interweave it into his masterful creations. Whether he's overlaying a 'mirror reflector' atop wool, leather and tweed, or blending paisley and floral prints over silk crepe, his wizardry is nothing short of extraordinary.
