The New Peter Som Collection Launches at Kohl’s + $100 Kohl’s Gift Card Giveaway!!!
Over the past month, I’ve had the opportunity to participate with Mom Central as a Fashion Ambassador with Kohl’s. I have loved exploring the different clothing collections, brands and accessories. But I especially have loved the DesigNation by Peter Som! On April 10th, the Peter Som DesigNation Collection became available at Kohl’s. Yay! There are so many cute outfits I want to purchase and add to my wardrobe. I already know when and where I would wear a few of those outfits.
ABOUT PETER SOM
Peter Som gives an aesthetic of bold sophistication and eclectic elegance, bringing a fresh point of view to the fashion world. This San Francisco native began drawing at a young age – being inspired by his architect parents and the laid-back elegance of the Bay Are. Today, Peter is still drawing from these early influences as he designs clothes for confidently elegant women. He is known for his signature bold prints, which are feminine and quirky, yet classic.
Peter graduated with a degree in Art History from Connecticut College in 1993 and continued his studies at Parsons School of Design, where he was a recipient of the Isaac Mizrahi Gold Thimble Award. Upon graduation, Peter honed his skills in the design room of the legendary Bill Blass.
In 2001 Peter debuted his namesake collection with a show at Bryant Park. Twice-nominated for the CFDA Perry Ellis Award for Emerging Talent, Peter was among the 10 semi finalists in the first ever Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund initiative.
Peter was appointed as the Creative Director of Women’s Wear for Bill Blass from 2007 to 2008. He also served as a consultant for Tommy Hilfiger from 2009 to 2012, designing the women’s runway collection. In 2011, Peter’s interest in interior design resulted in a line of luxury bedding with famed home linens company Sferra and also his most recent collaboration with Surya Rugs which will debut in the Fall of 2013. He was also approached by Anthropologie and launched a very successful ready-to-wear collection for the brand for the Spring 13 season under their Made in Kind initiative.
Peter’s clothes continue to win accolades from buyers and critics alike and are regularly featured in major fashion publications, including Vogue, W, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and InStyle. A generation of stylish celebrities have embraced Peter’s collection, among them Allison Williams, Kate Mara, Jessica Alba, Rachel McAdams, Lea Michelle, Scarlett Johansson, Claire Danes, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ginnifer Goodwin.
Peter has established himself as a singularly original voice in the world of fashion.
PETER SOM’S INSPIRATION
As Fashion Ambassadors for Kohl’s, we had the opportunity to see a few of Peter Som’s drawings. These drawings were amazingly close to the clothing available to us in Kohl’s stores throughout the country. He also drew inspiration from his visits to St. Barth’s. I can definitely see his inspiration in the clothing he has made available for us to purchase. Can you?
