Peter Do is one of the most exciting new names to know and follow right now, adding some much-needed fresh energy in the New York Fashion Week scene.
A Phoebe Philo alumnus, the up-and-coming designer made a name for himself for his modernist ready-to-wear, which achieves the perfect balance between the classic and the conceptual. Think cool leather separates, pleated skirts and monochrome tailoring — all the ingredients a modern woman’s wardrobe needs.
Excitingly, the designer has been building on the success of his ready-to-wear collections and delving deeper into the accessories world too, shoes included.
For his latest fall 2022 collection, presented in New York, he offered the most chic croc-effect leather boots that would serve anyone for years to come. He also added some more directional pieces in the form of high platform ankle boots, which added an edgy touch to his minimalist looks. A snake-print pair worn with a graphic grey and black suit was among the highlights.
Buyers from all major retailers carrying Do’s clothing, ranging from Farfetch to Mytheresa, gave the shoes a big thumbs up after fashion week – given how much they aligned with the biggest trend of the season, platforms. So, keep a close eye on all things Peter Do for fall and get in early, as this is a brand whose star is bound to keep rising.
