For Spring 2014, Peter Som describes the collection concept as “surf style meets downtown”. The collection is full of iconic sportswear pieces—sweatshirt, moto jacket—and plays with the juxtaposition of menswear and women wear coming together. Peter Som’s signature print/pattern mix can still be found this season with digitized prints, graphic florals, and stripes. Peter Som’s aesthetic is well-known as classic clothing, with an eclectic twist—Surf style goes below 14th Street. The Look: Contradicting Tension
