Evoking the narrative and precision of board games, Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos rediscover their multi-hued layouts throughout their AW15 collection, with references of snakes and ladders, connect four and ludo.
Shiny counters and pieces, winding mazes and chromed cabochon buttons trace circuits down pinball inspired ensembles. Tracks are needlepunched through boucle jacquards and textures shiver resplendant with intricate handwork.
Tundra whites, dusty rose, caramel and hunter green are shot with chartreuse, peacock blue and mandarin. Tactile snowflakes are knitted into split collar ski sweaters for an opaque density that returns in the chenille-effect of baby alpaca intarsias.
Diverse tactile embellishments continue as wool embroidery blooms across silk crepe picked out in icy crystals flowers, creating a futurist motif through woolen eyelet lace.
