What you've all been waiting for.....

07 October, 2009

So I'm finally getting round to posting some of the pics from LFW, first of all it was highstreet/ East London cool kids favorite PPQ. The collection itself is extremely disappointing, everything looks sloppy and outdated. The cuts and the prints looks are just bland and remind of something you could get from Lipsy or even Clothing Club. But then again this is PPQ, they have never really been know for their innovation, but more for the celeb association.

The only good thing about the collection was:
1). They used all black models.
2). It gave us a sneak preview of the PPQ x Addidas Collaboration, but even that is boring, the t-shirt is well, just a t-shirt, and looks no different from any other Addidas shirt. The jumper dress is a little bit more interesting, the trademark logo a key focal point, but still a bit hit and miss, especially when compared to Addidas' other innovative collaboration with Jeremy Scott.

Next was a show that I had been really looking forward to, Ashish, I wasn't really sure what to expect but I knew it would involve sequins and loads of it. The theme for the S/S 2010 collection was holidays and vacations, giving us a sequined snapshot of summer holidays of the past. The collection focused mainly on dresses, which showcased clouds, palmtrees and the ultimate summer staple, the Hawaii print shirt and shorts, this time given the Ashish treatment and bedazzaled to your hearts content.

Ashish also threw in a few shoulder spikes for good measure. The shows highlight was the Statue of Liberty maxi dress, the iconic image did all the talking, however the Mona Lisa dress however left a bad taste in my mouth. It reminded alot of the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Barak Obama dress from a few seasons ago.

Like PPQ, Ashish used LFW to showcase a few pieces from their own sportswear collaboration, this time with (surprise surprise!) sportswear giants, Nike, erm not much to say here, from what I've seen here the collection looks like it's just going to be a bunch of oversized Nike t-shirts with millions of sequins, which is what I expected, but then again I didn't. Ashsih could have come much harder than this, it's just very lazy. (I would still be very happy if I could get my hands on one though)
