Meadham Kirchhoff was an explosion of colour, a 60s pop art show with ballerina dancers, a life size magic box ,a huge balloon installation, bubble wigs, neon lips and glitter - mixed with the Magic Roundabout in a nursery rhyme mix up: clownish platforms of layered glittery rubber and frills let the models stomp around in pompom dresses of ostrich feather, big rhinestone knickers, cardigans smothered in hearts and dollies and apron dresses featuring teddy bear faces. The clothes were straight from a dress up box, with structured sequined knicker-shorts, bright pinafore dresses and heart motifs in bold canary yellow, pillar box red and turquoise.
Peter Pilotto's SS 2012 collection embraces both new and classic perspectives on elegance. Otherworldly prints combine with soft, sculptural shapes to form the handwriting of the design duo, something which evolves and is explored each season as opposed to being reactionary.
