Following a recent trip to Okinawa, Japan, design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos, decided to share an "alternate vision" of the East in their latest collection. Hotter and more tropical than they’d imagined, the island inspired a combination of barely-there asymmetric dresses, one-shoulder tops and flowing skirts, alongside a selection of more athletic pieces including tailored silk joggers and luxe track tops.
Their Spring/Summer 2018 signature? Ikebana-inspired print dresses – the Japanese art of flower arranging having been a holiday hobby – that showcased audacious designs of wild orchids and anemones, as well as more structural pieces in graphic stripes and sequin checks. All 42 looks came in a colour palette of acid-hued pastels after the Anglo-Japanese artist Peter MacDonald, a perfect fit with the brightly coloured plastic stools that filled the Waldorf Hilton’s Palm Court.
