Peter Som Interview

Peter Som Talks East Coast vs. West Coast Style, and Holiday Indulgences

Encompassing a penchant for laid-back elegance, Peter Som has left the industry smitten with his effortlessly beautiful gowns and separates. With fans ranging from FLOTUS Michelle Obama to celebs like Eva Mendes, it's safe to say the San Francisco native has created a buzz worth talking about. Most recently, the designer teamed up with Rent the Runway to offer a few of his party dresses and shared with us his holiday season indulgences, thoughts on East Coast vs. West Coast style, and celebrities he would like to dress. Listen up:

On East Coast vs. West Coast style: "It's all about the ease and nonchalance of West Coast style mixed with the high-impact glamour of East Coast dressing. In other words — never look like you've tried too hard (even if you did!)."

On celebrities he would like to dress: "There are so many women who inspire me for their talent, spirit, and confidence! I'd love to dress Cate Blanchett."

On his favorite indulgent holiday treat: "I love cooking and baking so it would have to be my Panettone bread pudding."

On the best and worst presents he ever received: "All presents are great if there's thought behind them."
