Designers are a dime a dozen. They come, they conquer, and occasionally they succeed in this chaotic business known as fashion. But every once and awhile there is a designer who struts onto the catwalk, (literally), and surprises all with their unique aesthetic. One of those designers today would have to be none other than, Mr. Peter Som. With an original and quintessentially quirky eye for style, he is one of the most talented designers in the business.
If you’re a bit skeptical on that theory, just take a look at his Spring 2014 RTW collection. With an array of prints and colors, the collection is bursting with incandescent elements of spring. The entire collection is incredibly refreshing and sleek with contemporary features and refined silhouettes. If you glance closely, it’s clearly obvious there are bits of futurism and 1950’s surfer girl added with touches of menswear. Throughout the years, Peter Som has swiftly stolen my heart with just the effortless ease of a simplistic stich,
The way his creativity and playfulness leap out from every seam, is enough to cause me to go into a brief state of comatose. There wasn’t a single “Ooohhh” or “Ahhh” that didn’t escape from every individual who was present at Som’s Spring 2014 show. Although I wasn’t actually present for the runway show, I can only imagine. But just by taking slight looks at his work, one has to wonder why one wouldn’t be shocked by the designers immense talent.
