boom

One question we get a lot is: "What's so-and-so showing this season? Any hints?" As fashion month gets closer, people seem to become increasingly obsessed with what's going to be coming down the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan. Well, we've got a little hint for you. Peter Som was recently asked by New York Magazine to share a photograph and one word to describe his inspiration for his Fall 2012 collection. Som chose the word ' boom' as well asthe below photograph of a sculpture by John Chamberlain at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, exhibited in 1971. Chamberlain was an abstract sculptor most famous for his pieces made from recycled automobile parts; he passed away in December 2011. Now, I'm not sure how much you can guess about his collection from these hints, but one thing's for sure: he's bound to remain true to the preppy-with-a-twist aesthetic for which he's become so well-known. Can't wait to see how ' boom' and Chamberlain tie in...
