Peet Dullaert S/S 15

More often than not, contrast is what makes an ensemble exciting and for Peet Dullaert a young designer with a very grown-up talent, contrast was at the forefront of his spirited spring show. Juxtaposing divergent elements within his designs, Dullaert created a look that was elegant yet easygoing. Swaths of voile and tulle were reigned in and draped to create shapes that gracefully flowed against model’s bodies, while shapes were exaggerated and elongated to create a fluid look. Though the forms were relaxed each choice was deliberate and precise. When asked about his mood for the season Dullaert offered a unique raison d’être “I felt the need for something very clear and comfortable, almost hyper solutions in the manipulation of structural shape, fabric and color contrast. All together they add to the revelation of fragility that lies beyond the first glance.”

Given the beauty of this collection you can be sure the wearers will be getting more than just one glance. Each look provided something new to appreciate, be it Dullaert’s signature fabric techniques or subtly added crystals that sparkled without ever appearing blingy. By the time Irene Heimstra walked out in the striking finale look – a plum column with draping worthy of a Grecian goddess – viewers were enraptured.
