Peter Pilotto Spring 2012

Peter Pilotto Spring 2012

It's Monday morning, and I'm back again at the old Eurostar train station to check out the latest collection from design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos. The inspiration for Spring came from a trip to Indonesia. The exotic landscape and especially the leaves that overwhelmed the jungle, made such an impression on them, that they combined earthy looks with neoprene scuba materials to develop an eclectic yet feminine range.

Adrien Pinault was responsible for the natural, yet strong, Spring makeup style for MAC. ''Originally'', he said, ''Peter wanted to bring colour into the makeup to complement the collection, but ultimately we decided to tone down the face and keep it more unitone, as not to take away from the clothing.'' Adrien used Pink Rebel Lustre Drops mixed with Strobe Liquid Lotion on the skin before adding taupe blush to sculpt the cheeks. Then a bit of Dusk Cream Colour was applied to the cheeks, and loose powder was blotted onto the nose. The look is structured and contoured with transparent gloss on the lids and lips.

Hair was created by lead stylist Duffy to mimic the weaving and hatching dress-making elements. He used Frederic Fekkai Full Blown Volume all over and added water and hairspray to the back. The front was gelled before being styled and secured in place. What has been your favourite London Fashion Week show so far?
