The iconic British clothing label PPQ “Pounds, Pennies, & Quids” was founded during the early 90’s by design duo Percy Parker and Amy Molyneux in 1992 in London’s East end when they met as friends decided to start up a label together.

The signature PPQ Gabriel bag is back again this season but in leopard print and original signature patent.

Their signature style dna which the label is most notably known for was influenced by the British Music Scene and Percy’s background in music as a DJ and entrepreneur as owner of his independent record label 1234. Percy’s music label included Music Artist Peaches Gelfdof in Band Objects & Cosmetiques amongst a few others talents.

When PPQ London first set up the idea behind its great success was launched as a lifestyle brand which we know today to merge music, fashion and events including the 1234 Music Festival in Shoreditch.

For me it represents the iconic London Look with real British roots being founded in Shoreditch back in the day. At one point I do recall the label included Menswear on the runway and I hope they produce more lines as such in future to cater to male clientele.

This season PPQ returns with the self titled collection theme Purple Reign signifies the fashion labels signature style of rock and roll influences is still going strong from season to season.

For Autumn Winter 2016 it was all about Biker Jackets with zip details, Pussy Galore Blouses, elegant evening gowns, leopard prints, mohair jackets, leather pants, leather mini’s, elegant ruffled dresses. My favourite signature piece was a siren yellow jacket with fur sewn into the hood.

Ensembles included Leopard print tees which were worn under jackets revealing skinny hot pants. Colour hues throughout the collection had shades of purple, lilac, black, yellows, turquoise blue worked well as a contrast together. In my opinion the collection always makes the perfect go to pieces for party wear and looks really fun and versatile to build a capsule wardrobe for fall season in style.

Styling wise it was about back combed beehive hair channeling the late Amy Winehouse and the signature PPQ Gabriel bag is back again this season but in leopard print and original signature patent. It’s no surprise that Celebrity Fans of the signature bag have all included Paris Hilton, Mischa Barton, and Kirsten Dunst on the red carpet. As always I really enjoyed viewing this seasons collection and really looking forward to see what’s trending next season.
