Anyone who has ever seen a collection at the Tents has experienced the electric sense of anticipation that occurs when the music softens, the lights lower and the acrylic sheet is lifted to reveal a pristine white runway before a show. There was good reason for excitement on Wednesday morning when Peter Som showed his fun, buoyant and definitely girly take on spring. Som’s sassy spring presentation drew many famous front row faces, including fellow designers (John Bartlett), socialites (Tinsley Mortimer) and starlets (James King).

The majority of the collection featured unusually heavy taffetas, jacquards and linens in daffodil yellow, buttermilk and a montage of greys, accented with burgundy and cerulean. Botanical prints in burgundy and ochre were reminiscent of vintage upholstery fabrics and seemed out of place with the reinterpreted trapeze silhouettes that dominated Som’s runway. For a finale, he sent out a set of empire-waisted column dresses in every shade of cerulean chiffon, accented with contrasting velvet sashes.

The overall themes were big buttons, big poufs and big patent pumps in a show with the bounciest music on the runway and the ideal dresses to bring to your next social soiree.
