London Fashion Week was a huge success. But don’t take our word on it: The buyers from some of the U.K.’s leading department stores have been waxing lyrical about the collections that caught their eyes and their purse strings. Namely Peter Pilotto and Christopher Kane.
Liberty’s managing director, Ed Burstell, commented, “My favourite collection was Christopher Kane – it was a master stroke full of fresh ideas and fresh directions that will resonate at retail.” Meanwhile, buying director at Browns, Laura Larbalestier singled out Peter Pilotto and Ashish as commercial hits.
We couldn’t agree more. The bold use of colour, print, and tailoring on show at both Christopher Kane and Peter Pilotto were inspirational and invigorating to say the least. It will be exciting to see which of the runway pieces make it on to the shop floors. Let us know which ones you have your heart set on, in the comments. (Drapers)
