Peter Pilotto’s Fall 2013 collection is surprisingly pragmatic. The collection opens with a series of dresses and coats that could actually be worn together; the coats boxy tailoring and strong, wide shoulders allow for the strong shoulders of the otherwise softer dresses to fit beneath. That being said, it would be otherwise difficult to pair two Pilotto pieces, given the prints that dominate many of the dresses. Each print, unique in direction, color, content, assumes a role in moving the eye along the garment, the body, emphasizing the shapes that masturful tailoring and construction have achieved. Coat and skirt lengths seemed to be following the Fall 2013 trend of at and below the knee. The few pairs of pants in the collection were actually well executed, and stood out in the sea of skirts and dresses. The pragmatism of this collection comes back in the end, as the wearer of any Pilotto piece would need no jewelry, no special shoe, to present a Pilotto piece well. The only item that the wearer would need, in spades, to pull of Pilotto’s strong shapes and prints, is confidence.
