Peter Pilotto Showcases Art by Francis Upritchard, Martino Gamper, and Others with Their New Collection
For the debut of their Autumn-Winter 2017 lineup on Sunday, Pilotto and De Vos amplified still further the role that close artist and designer friends play in their creative processes. Colorful, textured pieces by Gamper, Francis Upritchard, Max Lamb, and Bethan Wood were selected to accompany models and onlookers in a striking room—the Palm Court at the Waldorf Hotel, a vast, Edwardian, white space with milky skylighting and a sunken center floor. Such stark visual contrasts, Pilotto and De Vos say, are a cornerstone of their label’s aesthetic, as is sharing intimate aspects of their private world.

Playing with scale, color and texture, Upritchard has populated the gallery with a vibrant collection of materials, expertly blending figurative sculpture and design to transform the 90-meter gallery.
