Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Peter Som Adds Some Much-Needed Color to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week With His Fall 2010 Collection
Dear Peter Som, thank you thank you thank you for giving us some color with your Fall 2010 Collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week! I do love my black-clad ensembles just like the next woman, however to quote the line from the film hit The Birdcage, “One does want a hint of color.” And that is what dearest Peter Som delivered to us swatch-starved attendees of Fashion Week this season. And not only did Som mix colors, he also mixed patterns. I’ve been sensing a nod toward the ‘30’s and ‘40’s with the many Fall Collections, and Som definitely gave that era some recognition with this collection as seen by the fur coats, delicate caps and the tie-front blouses. I have to admit, I never thought large furs would work so well with a feminine pantsuit, but work it did. Now what a statement that would make at a client dinner meeting before coat check!
