Peter Som 2011 Fall New York Fashion Week - Uptown Girl Downtown Chic With A Twist

Peter Som is known for his lady like, uptown girl with a little downtown girl cool & quirkiness looks. This season he has delivered another beautiful collection with a feel of the American socialite “Olivia Palermo” takes a taxi from her uptown apartment to downtown Soho gallery for a “René Gruau” fashion illustrations of Dior’s “New Look” gallery opening.

Olivia Palermo is an American socialite, model and actress. The daughter of real estate developer of Italian descent Douglas Palermo and interior designer Lynn Hutchings.

Depart from his usual bright color pallets with mixing prints, he choose a darker & more neutral color pallet for this fall. The show is full of beautiful tailored jackets and pants, a hint of the famous 50’s era “Dior New Look” with exaggerated peplum waist detail suits & beautiful fur detailed jackets / coats with a different twist – instead of the usual all over fur coat, which usually makes you look fat or like a big gorilla, Peter masterfully shift the proportion a little by just having the fur around the back and sleeves; it makes it a totally modern fur coats / jackets that every cool girl would want to wear & not looking like they borrow from their mother’s closet.

I especially loved the sequin textured ¾ sleeve dress with feather pocket detail look, the luscious navy sequin trouser pair with a boyish sleeveless button down shirt look, and the super luxurious looking heavy gauge cashmere cable knit sweater twin set that has a fur cape detail and the all black deep V-neck dress pair with a thin black leather belt …. Just too much fabulousness for one to handle but all with subtle luxurious details that screams the uptown chic but with a downtown cool twist, which Peter Som easily mastered this cool combo in every of his designs.

Here is the video of his fabulous Fall-Winter 2011 collection

Until next time, be well and look fabulous!
