Peter Pilotto’s Big Win

-------

peter pilottoPeter Pilotto is having quite a year—and it’s only February. Today, Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos, the digital-print masters behind the brand, have won the 2014 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, which includes a yearlong mentoring program and hefty £200,000 grant. Pilotto and De Vos were up against ready-to-wear designers Emilia Wickstead, Mary Katrantzou, Osman, Zoë Jordan, and House of Holland, and join the ranks of previous winners like Christopher Kane, Erdem, Jonathan Saunders, and 2013 champ Nicholas Kirkwood, who sold a majority stake of his brand to LVMH less than a year after his victory. With a hotly anticipated Target collaboration hitting stores on February 9, Peter Pilotto’s potential for total world domination is looking good. If Target’s website crashes, they’ll know they’ve really made it.

Shop the Look: Sports Authority

Although we wouldn’t exactly classify ourselves as sports nuts, lately we’ve felt inspired to embrace our inner athletes. Between the 2014 Olympic Games and the Super Bowl XLVIII in New York, February is looking like a very sporty month indeed (and we can’t pretend that Karl Lagerfeld’s couture trainers didn’t inspire us). To dress the part, channel the elevated gym-meets-streetwear we saw on the Gucci, Tom Ford, and Alexander Wang Spring ’14 runways: color-blocked sweatshirts, racing-stripe pants and, of course, the season’s must-have bag – a luxe backpack. Rose gold sneakers and a silver Nike+ FuelBand add a flash of shine. You’ll be more than ready to take on those endless viewing parties in style – and, as luck would have it, comfort, too.

Runway to Red Carpet: Awards Season Fever

-------

Lupita Nyong'oAwards Season is officially in full swing. Lupita, Amy, Emma, and Cate stole the show at Sunday’s Golden Globes, but plenty of other A-listers had their time in the spotlight on the busy party circuit. On Saturday, Sandra Bullock broke red-carpet convention by pairing a white T-shirt etched with iconic edifices with an emerald pencil skirt from Burberry’s fresh Pre-Fall ’14 offering for the BAFTA Los Angeles 2014 Awards Season Tea Party in Beverly Hills. The same day, Naomi Watts took a turn on the red carpet for the G’Day USA Black Tie Gala in an icy blue silk satin Spring ’14 Marchesa gown.

After the Globes, many stars slipped out of their red-carpet wares and into equally glamorous party frocks for some post-ceremony revelry. InStyle and Warner Bros. cohosted a bash that saw notables like Hailee Steinfeld, Emma Watson, and Miranda Kerr slink down the red carpet in their sartorial best. Diane Kruger, who was absent on the Globe’s red carpet, turned up in a black Pre-Fall ’14 Antonio Berardi gown sprinkled with gold crystals.

Silver-screen newcomers Lupita Nyong’o and Adèle Exarchopoulos each took home trophies at Thursday night’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. And they impressed on the red carpet, too. Nyong’o, who has topped countless Best Dressed lists the last few months, donned a statuesque, custom ivory silk crepe bandeau dress from Calvin Klein Collection (she also wore a printed Mary Katrantzou number to the DuJour magazine party this week, left). Exarchopoulos, meanwhile, chose a sheer Spring ’14 Louis Vuitton stunner spangled with beads and feathers. Tune in Saturday evening as the red-carpet excitement continues with the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Mulberry To Skip The LFW Runway

-------

Mulberry Spring '14Following Emma Hill’s departure from the house earlier this year, Mulberry has announced that it will not be sending its Fall ’14 collection down the catwalk during London Fashion Week in February. The British brand told WWD that it has “not finalized its creative director search,” and that it will still participate in LFW, on a smaller scale. Word on the street is that Mary Katrantzou, Roland Mouret, Erdem Moralioglu, and Sophie Hulme—whose handbags have generated quite a buzz among editors and consumers alike—are all potentially up for the gig.
