LFW S/S '11 report: PPQ

18 September 2010

Last show on Day 1 of LFW and predictably, a crowd of extroverts fill the foyer of the PPQ show space in the tent at Somerset House as eager Fashion Week attendees wait to be granted entry. We witness a most surreal meeting and making of friends when one of Brit singer Jamelia's people approach Amber Rose (Kayne West's ex-girlfriend) for a photo of the pair together, camera phones out and they hit it off straight away and are later spotted next to each on the FROW.

PPQ is always a bit of celeb circus and we later spot Paloma Faith and Michelle Williams (Destiny's Child) taking up their seats, oh and a rather unexpected Brigitte Nielsen (Sylvester Stallone's infamous ex-wife) but this time there are no famous faces on the catwalk. Instead, cone-hatted models begin the parade of PPQ's "Hassan" titled collection. Fun day-to-evening separates appear,  featuring a vibrant, abstract print that runs throughout - even on their classic frame bag. There's an unmissable Eighties vibe to the collection; and it's cocktail hour with black and bright taffeta.

Three things we loved....the classic sundress (that PPQ do so well); the black and gold scalloped shoes from their collaboration with Office (there's more to come in that department so watch this space!), and the head-turning pink, belted party frock!
