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.
