We knew Peter Do for his endless quest to perfection and evolution, through his loose-fitting outfits, vibrant rare colorful pieces, or showing off women’s shapes by superimposing various textures. For this Spring / Summer 2022 collection, we were predicting a similar wardrobe with more asymmetry and architectural constructions. But Peter Do is willing to reshape and rethink the rules of the fashion industry.

Let’s rediscover Peter Do…

How would we qualify his style? Is it gender fluid? Is he advocating the elegance of the unmatched? Is it futuristically minimalist? Is it intimate and provocative?

Maybe it is all at once. His timeless, powerful, and unexpected creations prove to us that this high-skilled designer reinvents and renews himself through his collections.

The more we look at his pieces, the more we see that he steps back from other fashion brands we know.

Even though his aesthetic reflects a clear inspiration from Celine, whom he learnt a lot from, working by her side, or Maison Margiela and Comme des Garçons, Peter Do firmly define and settled his own style.

The inventive label of the 46 looks is distinguished by its elaborate aestheticism and out of the codes.

Even though Peter Do’s main style is very close to minimalist looks, he also decided to step back and cut out its excesses to privileging lighter-weight garments. The only pattern which stood out most in the show are large white or burgundy flowers, to give an organic, fluid aspect of the clothes and to maintain a discreet connection with nature.

The runway show opened in New York City, offering a view on the large buildings, and the Hudson River, to dive deep into a softer elegant universe.

This season's show entitled “home” is calling for a reconnection, to establish a stronger link with communities and to invite everyone belong to this space. "Home" is the place we have spent most time the past few years, so we believe, the quarantine might have inspired the designer as cosy soft loungewear with plain colors, were presented to us yesterday. We could definitely wear that at a future Zoom call.

Peter Do seems to play a lot with duality. The contrasted colors as well as his will to create an immersive experience by combining ready-to-wear and haute couture fashioned pieces, shows the two faces of the designer.

Presented both livestream and in-person, the show's will was to reconnect people online and offline to create a common memory.

Diverse and inclusive Peter Do is adaptive to one’s identity and is creating garments for human stories.
