Fashion in Motion: Peter Pilotto

Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion shows at the V&A featuring leading fashion designers from across the world. Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos presented highlights from the label’s collections.

Initially founded by Austrian-Italian Peter Pilotto, Belgian-Peruvian Christopher De Vos joined the label in 2007. The duo met studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and now base their label in London.

De Vos and Pilotto combine their skills in silhouette, drapery, textiles and print to create innovative and contemporary designs. Complex graphics juxtapose soft, sculptural shapes and combinations of textures and bold colours form the ever evolving style of the design duo.

The label is frequently worn by high profile celebrities such as Naomie Harris, Kate Bosworth, Lupiya Nyong’o and Emma Roberts. Pilotto and De Vos have undertaken a number of collaborations with brands including Target, Ancient Greek Sandals, Kipling, Lisa Marie Fernandez and Nicholas Kirkwood. The label is sold in over 50 countries.

Art and artefacts are such a source of inspiration to us that it seems fitting to be showcasing a retrospective of the brand amidst such incredible history
