Peter Som is apparently heading to Tommy Hilfiger. Vogue covered the story this morning, saying that he will be going for a part-time position as creative consultant. I’m not really familiar with him as a designer, but his latest collection is a beaut.
It’s a bit Luella, a bit Marc Jacobs Americana but all his own at the same time. Digital prints are everywhere at the moment (and I’m sure that in their current incarnation they’re going to reach saturation point very soon) but Som makes them look fresh for Winter by teaming his prints with tweeds and faux furs. It’s very commercial, but nontheless interesting, and makes me want to root around my cavernous wardrobe for all my retro prints and granny knits.
