For an inspiring color-blocking and pattern-mixing master class take a look at the five-week “townhouse takeover” by fashion designer Peter Pilotto (@peterpilotto). One of the highlights of the London Design Festival (@l_d_f_official), Pilotto, along with his partner Christopher de Vos and their creative friends (Peter McDonald, Bethan Laura Wood, Max Lamb, Schmid McDonagh, Jochen Holz, Francis Upritchard, Martino Gamper and others) transformed three floors of traditional row house into a color- and pattern-filled wonderland.
The palette of oranges, lilacs, pinks, and aquas, was lifted from Pilotto’s recent collection, with the other participants creating the furniture, rugs, lighting, glass and ceramic accessories to enhance and compliment. It’s continuing the conversations Pilotto says he and his friends have on the topics of fashion and design, and a continuation of his A/W 17 runway presentation which featured rugs, seating and lighting. ••••
Another factor for creating the temporary space was given by de Vos. ”Why would you go to a store nowadays? Instead we wanted to create something special that attracts people, where they want to hang out, and the fact it’s a temporary space creates more of a reason to go. This is part of questioning what retail can look like. One day we will open a store, but we need to prepare. This is an exercise about having fun and gathering our friends.” #decortours #colorinspiration #designinspiration #londondesignfestival #runwayinspiration #colorblocking #patternmixing
