Peter Som Pre-Fall 2012 Collection
Inspired by the 1972 French movie “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie” and also Wallis Simpson, this collection was summed up as well as it can be by the person who designed it. “It’s a ladylike approach to dressing, but a little undone,” says Peter Som. That nails it. There are some really great pieces in here; love the coats and the pieces in that slightly unusual and witty “jewelry floral” at the end. Love the various shades of red and pink, as well as the low key chic feel throughout. Don’t love the animal prints or most of the pants, though. Still, these are excellent wardrobe-builders for the lady who wants to look good and look stylish but doesn’t want to spend an hour in her closet trying things on for the day. Style for the gal who wants her style to look effortless.
