LFW: Peter Pilotto, Ossie Clark, Marios Schwab

I've always been a sucker for a good star print - especially galaxy and solar system print (a lot harder to find than your standard and now somewhat iconic star print from Chanel's Spring 08 collection. Peter Pilotto did an amazing galaxy print for his Winter 08 collection, and has developed it further for the collection he just showed in London for 09. Also love the use of twisting and draping - takes it to another level.

I found most of the Ossie Clark collection underwhelming, maybe thats why these dresses really stood out. The strength is the simplicity and fluidity - the movement of the pieces (even captured in a still shot) looks amazing.

Although it was a winter collection, its the short pieces that really shined for me in Marios Schwab show. The neckline and shapes of the first dress are great, and the folded, crisp white origami-like quality of the second dress is my favorite (and reminds me of one of my all time favorite Stella McCartney dresses). I don't think I need to explain that tantalizingly soft blue fur.

those ossie dresses are so beautiful, although i can never seem to wear long dress, i guess my life never feels glam enough. i do have a vintage ossie top that is amazing and has a very similar plunging neckline. the schwab middle dress is pretty much perfection. u would be the hottest thing in the room in that, great pics.
