A few fresh faces creating some buzz around town.
PETER PILOTTO

Austrian Peter Pilotto and Libya-born Christopher De Vos met during their design studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and formed the label after graduation. Their collection made its London debut two seasons ago, and spring 2009 is the first season they’ve received New Generation sponsorship to stage a show.

In the past, the duo have focused on offbeat prints: Their fall 2008 collection spotlighted patterns resembling cosmic starbursts. The collection as a whole featured structured garments such as wool coats with origamilike folds. For spring, the designers said they’ve taken inspiration from ideas that run from “a modern grotesque,” to “abnormal art,” using colors that mimic “the contrast between the subdued moth and the vibrant butterfly.” Retailers currently stocking the line include Colette in Paris, and Opening Ceremony in New York and Los Angeles.
