Peter Som Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

Yesterday’s schedule of New York Fashion Week was full of bright and charming fashion shows including the Peter Som spring/summer 2014 collection. In the impressions of most attendees we can notice one thing – they all agree that Peter’s inspiration subject is quite evident, it’s the sea, and to be more accurate, surfing. “Surf style goes below 14th Street” read the inspiration notes at Peter Som, which was quite enough to guess what to expect from the show.

Particularly, Peter Som models were like surf-girl characters. Though the motifs are mostly loose and leisure ones, most of the models are tightened with jackets. Those can be men’s motorcycle jackets or jean jackets, but in the Peter Som spring/summer 2014 collection they are filled with feminine delicacy and charm. As Som himself called it, “It’s surfing mixed with menswear and the ease of being away at the beach, with a downtown twist”.
The colors and prints of the Peter Som spring/summer 2014 collection vary from blues of worn jeans to classic black and white, from wave strips to anemone flower prints. In general, Peter Som seems to be one of the few designers, who can use the bold prints in the most experienced way without making things flagrant and appalling. Only one or two models represent the warm summer color of the sun, but anyway, the wavy patterns of their skirt layers keep reminding us about the sea surfing.

The key concept of the entire Peter Som spring/summer 2014 collection is motion. It is everywhere, in every piece of the collection. You seem to imagine the models making waves like in the sea even when they just stand still. It is just the appearance and the freedom of movement in the skirts, dresses and wide leg pants that gives this impression.
The overall impression of the Peter Som spring/summer 2014 collection is like the girls are on the beach for surfing, but they keep their everyday outerwear and bare their city life along with them for any case.
