Peter Som Fall 2012
Melding sculptural tailoring with soft details, Peter Som played with the differences between masculine and feminine aesthetics for his Fall collection. He cited Katharine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich, Hollywood icons who mastered menswear, as muses for the clothing. "I wanted to convey a sense of strength and beauty — this collection is about a streamlined and bold silhouette with lots of textural mixes inspired by John Chamberlain and Brancusi." Balloon-sleeved wrap jackets and peplum tops gave pieces a sculptural feel, while the use of organza and fur offered Som fans more glamorous options.
