Chains, smoke, and revolution have replaced Peter Pilotto's familiar language of flowers and sea foam for fall.

Peter, and partner Christopher de Vos, looked to the art and architecture of Russian Constructivism for a darker mood. Where nature has dominated in seasons past, in the designers' new era, technology and steel have seized the reigns of power. Swathed fabrics and and telescoping patterns keep the pieces feminine but there is a new dynamic at work, less botanical and more Bolshevik!
