Need Peter Som apparel at a discount? This is the guide for some of the best alternatives, anywhere online. I've decided to list some websites that seem to consistently have the lowest prices. Below are the websites that I recommend.
Mr. Som was raised in San Francisco by parents who were architects, which help to imbue him with a aptitude for design and a laid back sophistication.
His designs are edgy, challenging and youthful playing patterns against solids against textures. His dresses and jackets feature wild layering, fur, brocades and a variety of fabrics. His resort wear is soft and cool. layered with heavy accessories. Recent collections are meant to redefine sportswear as refined and elegant, suitable for any occasion.
The brand's international offline retail presence ranges from boutiques to department stores in upscale cities and their online presence is at most major shopping portals.
FROM THE BLOGS:
Oh, I love when a designer is willing to get involved in controversy. To be real about this, I may take a stand on the side of a controversy, but it tells me at times that the designer has more little more going than just creating and selling apparel. It's difficult to create a webpage with enough information that Google thinks that it's worth existing in the internet universe. Generally, you find each designer has listing of fashion show and product reviews that seems routine and at sometimes mundane. That is why I see it as a gift when a blog search turns up something personal about the designer.
And that personal thing that comes up with this designer is his beef with the Sultan of Brunei. The Sultan of Brunei has enacted legislation to make "sexual crimes" punishable by stoning (to death). These "crimes" include being gay. Mr. Som, along with shoe designer, Brian Attwood, have called for a boycott of hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei, such as the Le Meurice in Paris, Principe di Savoia in Milan, or the Dorchester in London. This boycott is now a big deal with backers such as Sir Richard Branson and Anna Wintour and scandal for the British royal family for not honoring the boycott. My guess is that this boycott is limited to those of means, because I doubt that too many can afford to patronize a luxury hotel owned by the Sultan of Brunei, even if they wanted to.
