Peter Pilotto RTW SS10

Peter Pilotto was the show I was most looking forward to and it was also where I had my one and only Anna sighting this season. I arrived very unfashionably early but not far behind me was the Wintour herself, because that’s just the way she rolls. She was quickly ushered backstage like the queen for her meet and greet with designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

The venue filled up painfully slowly so A-Dubs was left pretty much on her own on the front row while we waited for everyone to take their seats – awkward. She looked so tiny and alone that I was tempted to sit next to her and engage in some fashi week small talk, maybe get to the bottom of her inexplicable and slightly creepy obsession with Roger Federer. Luckily, Sarah Mower took pity and sat beside her. Peeps were also having palpitations at the sight of every blogger's favourite, Kate Lanphear, who I just can’t get excited about. Give me Vogue’s Kate Phelan over La Lanphear any day

So did the clothes get the Wintour seal of approval? – fitted dresses with capped sleeves are definitely her thing but I guess we’ll have to wait 6 months to see if they appear on a jumping Caroline Trentini shot by David Sims against a blank background in American Vogue. For SS10, the duo created softly structured silhouettes by twisting and draping the material around the body. The stunning watercolour prints were inspired by dawn, dusk, fireworks, the ocean and the night sky. My favourite print looked like a colourful yet fading, woven tweed and the perspex belts were another standout. Without doubt, the most polished and assured collection I have seen all week. NOK
