Peter Pilotto is certainly a name to watch. The fashion house is made up of design duo Peter Pilotto from Austria and Libyan Christopher De Vos, who met at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.

Their Autumn/Winter 2008 collection, featuring otherworldly prints and softly sculptured shapes, inspired by an image from 1830 named ‘the mineralogist’, led to fervent praise and was credited by Style.com as one of the ‘Ten Most Promising New Talents’.

The pair draws inspiration from a varying range of the weird and wonderful from 1920s Ballets Russes, the illustrations of Léon Bakst, medieval Page Boys, Byzantine Churches, warriors of ancient Rome and science fiction.

Spring/Summer 2009, sees a delicious collection, crafted in the fashion houses’ signature mineral tones and swathing shapes.
