The final preparations for the Peter Som Fall 2010 Collection runway show at Milk Studios on February 13th were not exactly calm. The sense of anticipation and energy was infectious, leaving everyone backstage with an emanating glow. The collection itself, exploding with edible-looking color and tripped-out pattern, hung impatiently on neatly arranged racks. Such fresh, vibrant clothing only contributed to the contagious spirit of vitality and creative purpose. Everything seemed almost ready to burst. Eventually it would, making the moments before the show seem like the calm before the print-laden, sequin-adorned, fur-clad storm…
Notice the details… granny booties are a sky-high daydream, and a gush of lagoon-blue Mongolian lamb lends quirk and whimsy to grey tweed.
Delicious purples, pinks and blues for Imogen.
A yellow “trippy plaid” blouse (as Peter Som calls it) is in the psychedelic spirit of the collection.
Ginta’s black and white trench looks exotically feathered.

This is what I call calm.
