Founded in 1992, Percy Parker and Amy Molyneaux’s label PPQ became known for dressing fashion-forward names in the mid-noughties and continues to draw a trend-setting crowd, with blogger Bip Ling and postmodern artist Pandemonia in the front row this season.
For autumn/winter 2012, immaculate coat dresses in black mohair, white wool and grey tweed were paired with black visors with a single silk rose at the nape of the neck (courtesy of House of Flora for PPQ), hinting at the wardrobe of a Gothic heroine. One-shoulder and off-the-shoulder gowns were realised in animal-printed satin and velvet and a host of leotards mixed wet-look fabrics with ombre chiffon. The stand-out accessories: boxy PPQ Gabriel bags, Bebaroque for PPQ hosiery and PPQ Rule Supreme bikes in black, white and olive green. These brought together a mature collection that proves the brand hasn’t lost its edge.
