The infamous PPQ. After ten years of showing at London Fashion Week, the crowds have gotten wise to the oversubscribed, crazy popular PPQ show – people started queuing over 40 minutes early to ensure entry into one of the hottest shows of the week. With a star-studded front row including Peaches Geldoff and my LFW favourite Pandemonia (a 6ft blow up celebrity), the air was buzzing with excitement and anticipation. A soft piano version of Golddigger by Kanye West played in the background, a sign that Percy and Amy are still enamoured and inspired by hiphop.
The actual soundtrack to the show was much more upbeat, thumping 90s tunes were the perfect accompaniment to a collection which took them back to their roots. The first few looks were fairly pared back and grown up – sensible, pretty dresses with shiny gold buttons, big lapels and pocket details. The pretty pastel colours met with a tougher, Western look, courtesy of their collaboration with Lee Jeans. The duo also collaborated with Bebaroque for some truly stand out tights, leggings and bodysuits featuring the brand new PPQ crest which also adored most of the pieces sent down the catwalk. The fun, crazy prints also made an appearance as did heavy embroidery, for me some of the pieces were a little too young and trashy but on the whole I really liked the collection and the collaborations.
