With the Veronica Lake hairdos and all kinds of peplum waists, slim midi-length hems, and dramatic collars, there was a clear retro thread. Molyneaux politely dismissed the notion, calling focus instead to the intricate draping tailored into sleeves and shoulders. While we're on the topic of construction, it's worth mentioning that no one comes to PPQ for fine craftsmanship, but seeing models hobble painfully down the runway in ill-fitting dresses spoiled some of today's fun.
Ultimately, PPQ is one of those Pied Piper London labels that manufactures energy and brings the kids along. It's tailor-made for collaborations, like their newest one with Rule Style Bikes, as well as easy-to-sell accessories like the oversize glossy cases that many of the models carried today. If you saw the bananas scene of paparazzi shooting the front row, you'd know that energy is one product the duo isn't skimping on.
