Candy colours, gemstone embellishment and clashing logo/floral prints punctuated the PPQ SS12 collection. Beginning with a 1950′s twist in the form of gingham prints, the collection swiftly moved to encapsulate a spectrum of colours and patterns, the signature of which was a gold-based print featuring the PPQ logo and brightly coloured roses.
Applique details carried throughout, layered on top of denim for an urban-inspired edge. Colours ranged from ice-cream tones of lilac, peppermint green and blue, with a pink-haired model adding to the rainbow effect. Silhouttes became more dreamlike and voluminous as the collection progressed, with blouson sleeves and floaty palazzo trousers in flowing fabrics. Oversize gold buttons, leather straps and accessories completed the looks, but most striking were eye masks teamed with angular hats that added a theatrical edge to an already visually elaborate runway.
