Appropriately titled Black Out, PPQ's latest collection was dedicated to "the apocalyptic romance of winter". Now if you are unsure of what this means, simply imagine the end of the world as a very stylish, smashing night out.
The show started with a bang as the first model made her way down the catwalk pushing one of the now infamous PPQ Rule Supreme Style Bikes - it was unusual, playful and grabbed my attention straight away. Models were far from being in cycling attire, wearing flawy dresses, midi skirts, belted coats, but also PVC hot pants and embellished tights instead. It was definitely a more grown up show from what PPQ had got us used to in the past few years with Veronica Lake hairdos, peplum waists, longer hems, cinched in waists on jackets and dramatic fur collars, greatly inspired by 1950s Hollywood glamour.
If green was slowly introduced throughout the show, colour was far from being the focus of this collection. Instead it was all about animal print, textures and materials. PVC was paired with soft chiffon, tweed and fur for an edgy, yet fun look, perfect to embrace the end of the world in style. It's 2012 after all.
What did you think of the show? I personally loved it!
