NYFW AW2014: Peter Som

This season in the Big Apple, Peter Som has pleasantly patented the welcome warmth of a free-spirited elation, and the crowning corpus, a fabulously fleeting, blurred floral bouquet print, an exemplary reflection of fashion in 2014 for the footloose and fast-paced life of the young and vital fashion heroine.

But for now, consider the generous lashings of loud leopard print, reprising its influence after appearances last year at Som and making for an exotic twist by way of short, sheared fur jackets, captivating feminized trench forms and dresses, the ultimate in demure statement pieces.

The animalistic undertones also found their way to a myriad of furry textures, kick-starting outré silhouettes via feathery bursts of superior ostrich plumage peplums and swank shaggy skirts. The fuzzy charm undoubtedly enlivened the animated, blossoming brushstroke, prints, applied to skirts, coats, and even slight crops, arising from an apparent ardour of the rose, Som coming forth to proclaim, “These are all roses. I was trying to give things a bit of mystery.”

Other shapes included elegant, tastefully tailored pea-coats and chic reposed suits, however it could be said that other prints almost pale in comparison to the scintillating, sketchy, liquid bouquet aesthetic, which positively reaches it’s apex of effect when in motion, positioned on flowing gowns with a breezy, faintly bohemian, opulence.

A palette of cheerful, zesty, heated tones paired with the kind of sapphire and true-to-life slate hues that recollect an awe-inspiring ocean view, hone in the plush collection, which captures a fabulous mood for our time and cements a commendable addition to the Som archive.
