Looks like 2008 will be a busy year for Peter Som. While his namesake line continues to grow, the designer revealed his first collection for Bill Blass on Wednesday. The chic pre-fall looks pay tribute to the house's early days in a smart — and, all-importantly, controlled — way.
'Tis the season for pre-fall, and for Peter Som that means one thing: his first Bill Blass collection. The designer delivered it in an effortless yet luxurious way with a tailored lineup that kept true to the Blass heritage. Reem Acra, meanwhile, offered various versions of drama and glitz, and Bryan Bradley struck a light tone at Tuleh with romantic florals and a touch of color.
