It’s safe to say that everyone loves Peter Som. What’s not to like? He’s charming, he’s funny and oh yeah, he designs fantastic clothes. (Okay, we really dig him.) His Spring 2015 collection was full of gorgeous prints in the new color of the season: olive.

We chatted backstage with Peter about the latest shade of green and burgers. Yes, burgers.

theFashionSpot: Can you talk to us about the colors and what inspired you to use them?

Peter Som: I really like the idea of more nuanced colors for spring because I feel like dressing now is so seasonless. So, I was really obsessed with this olive green, which to me is …

tFS: it’s the color of the season right now

PS: And I love it. It takes Kelly green and takes it down a notch.

tFS: Kelly and army combined.

PS: Exactly! And I love that color mixed with petal pink and some softer colors and some navy in there.

tFS: And you’ve got gold lame in there too. I hope someone wears that suit to the office.

PS: A little Studio 54 moment…

tFS: You’re a big foodie, what have you been eating to get through this week?

PS: I’ve been eating a lot of juice press, and then I’ve been cooking at home.

tFS: So, what’s your celebration dinner going to be?

PS: Probably go to Soho House with my parents like I always do and eat a burger.
