Peter Som went mysterious with florals for Fall 2014

Designer Peter Som bounced lightly between shifts, suits and coats in his Fall 2014 collection, shown Friday at Milk Studios. After the show, he said he wanted to bring back a sense of romance from the ’60s, with the ease of the ’70s.

His pea coats, in marine and lacquered wool, were inspired by Jane Birkin. He also slipped in a black worsted wool jumpsuit with a tuxedo stripe.

“I feel like jumpsuits have been trending for a while, and I really wanted to do one,” he told Style Blog post-show. “It’s one of the most effortless ways to dress.”

But the real take-away was the blurred floral prints, all roses that he dubbed slightly mysterious, shown on sweaters, coats and on a final silk twill skirt.
