Runway Review: Peter Som Spring 2014

Labor Day has long gone and here comes Peter Som with his array of perfectly white pieces tempting every girl in town (that is able to get her hands on his clothes right after the runway show) to defy the unwritten rule of American sartorialism.

In a recent interview with WWD, Som declared his inspiration behind today's show as "Surf's Up In The City". Girls that throw a printed overcoat on a 50s style swimsuit and roam the city opened the show. The blurred paint print in shades of blue and black was quite Pucci-esque and great for a spring/summer collection.

There were plenty perfectly toned abs on display. A mega-trend that shows no signs of stopping, according to Som, is the crop top. My favorite rendition was a printed one paired with wide leg striped trousers (trend alert!) and a boxy black jacket casually thrown over the model's shoulders.

Another print that caught my eye was a superbly modern floral which was shown on the chicest (and most classic) pieces such as pencil skirts and crisp tops. Prints aside, I think what will make women open their wallets (with little or no hesitation) will be those incredible crisp white skirts, shirts and jackets. They are clean and polished without looking clinical and easy to combine with pieces that every woman has in her closet.

The draping on a few day-to-night dresses was beautiful and flattering for any woman. It almost resembled a casual, floor length T-shirt dress casually gathered at one hip.

Sheer panels (also seen yesterday on the BCBG Max Azria show) showed hints of skin when placed on the bottoms of skirts for a sexy, yet classy look that (still) seems quite fresh.

Peter Som gave women a few more reasons to look forward to the next spring/summer season...and defintely provided plenty of motivation to keep working on those abs.
