London Fashion Week Day 2 - PPQ (updated)

21.2.10

After seeing what happened at House of Holland, I decided not to go to PPQ as I didn't want to risk being squished and pushed around by the angry fashion crowd. Instead, I gave the live streaming a go and watched it from the comfort of my own living room.
Of course, seeing the streamed version and seeing the show in the flesh is a totally different experience as it makes it harder to judge the textures and fabrics at play. I will definitely go and check out the collection in person before I make up my mind about it (and I will probably write about it some more later).

I was not taken by the part of the show that  looked a bit too much like the 80's prom dress rail at Beyond Retro. A lot of black velvet and gold brocade, tassels, satin insert in power dresses etc.

However, I really loved the gold leather shorts, the shoes and the accessories.

The hair and make up were on the sexy side of natural, which I liked too.

I will definitely get back on PPQ once I have been to see the collection in person and touched the fabrics. I will also come back to you with some snaps!


Updated - I have added some photos after getting up close and personal with the collection and I have to admit streaming is definitely not enough to judge a show. My first impression of 80's prom dresses definitely vanished when I laid my hands on the little velvet numbers from the show. I am still totally partial to the gold leather shorts. 
I think on second thoughts, this collection mostly gets thumbs up from me!
