Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are known for their saturated colors and prints, and the duo didn’t stint on either front for fall — even throwing embellishment into the mix.

Their silhouettes nodded to the sporty, including a burgundy funnel-neck sweater-and-skirt combo stitched with blue-and-white bugle beads and edged in purple sheepskin fur, as well as a pink high-necked minidress glistening with fragments of mother of pearl in shades of blue, red and pink.

Color-drenched prints ran from purple-and-orange mountain motifs on a fit-andflare dress to a red-and-green repeat print of athletes on a cloque halterneck gown. The duo’s expert constructions stood out — particularly on the series of tailored wool dresses — but the relentlessly bright made the collection feel one-note. Those loud motifs seemed to work best when knit into ribbed ski sweaters, voluminous coats and pencil skirts for a gentler effect.
