Haven't you heard of him yet? :)
Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the designers behind the Peter Pilotto label.
In December 2009 they were awarded the Best Emerging Talent Award at the British Fashion Awards.

Peter Pilotto’s vision of womenswear embraces both new and classic perspectives on elegance. Their prints combine with soft sculptural shapes to form the handwriting of the design duo, something which evolves and is explored each season as opposed to being

Pilotto is focused toward textiles and print whereas De Vos concentrates more on silhouette and drape. However, the duo work beyond their individual perimeters to create something new, their process being very organic and beyond an integration of the two fields.
Peter Pilotto prefers to guard a little magic around its creations for the wearer’s own input. This is reinforced by the idea of the curiosity cabinet, which is something that holds stimulus for the duo. 
The curiosity cabinet is a metaphor for journey, their cultural mix and a collection of recurring things that enamour them, such as natural phenomena. The duo are particularly fascinated with a scientific view of nature, as reflected in the microscopic, encrusted, hyper-real prints of the collections.
Their customer is unique in that she is beyond pure classification of age or style, just like the clothes themselves. She is instantly attracted to the clothes and will wear them with her own expression, whether she encounters their designs through a chance discovery or is a loyal follower.
