THE FULL REPORT: PETER PILOTTO

Like everyone else, we want everything from the Peter Pilotto AW12 collection – from the star spangled puffa jackets to the incredible Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, from those razor-sharp printed trousers to that incredible peplum full-length printed gown.

This season, Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos drew inspiration from Asian subcultures, and their signature digital prints were influenced by images of Japanese trucks and Chinese opera masks. Sounds abstract? It was anything but – the clothes were pulled together with a remarkable precision and sympathy to the feminine form: we're talking cut-out bodices that lifted the bosom just a little, mesh panels details to show off elegant shoulders and backs, fit and flare skirts for just the right amount of swagger and the most elongating high necklines.

And as usual, the fabrics were a triumph. Rich lasered velvet contrasted with airy chiffon and luxurious jersey, with a dramatic spattering of embellishment that is new to the Pilotto outfit – sequins, beads and rich texture providing a new dimension to the brand's ever expanding offering.

Commit these pieces to memory now, because you'll be seeing them on a red carpet near you very soon indeed. Well done to Peter and Christopher – if the backstage rush was anything to go by, you've got another great season ahead of you! If you missed their show, you can watch it again right here!
