"There was this shop in the South of France called Cappucino," said Zara Martin after tonight's PPQ show. "It was such a big deal in the '90s, and they sold all these embellished, beaded jeans - kind of like Versace was back then, when everything was sparkly and slightly tacky but fabulous." Martin was describing tonight's PPQ show, a London staple among the dance floor set. ]
Celebrating their Tenth anniversary at LFW, the British party-girl label rolled out a denim collaboration with Lee Jeans that was indeed both over-the-top and very cool. In their version of the must-have pant, the designers worked with tapered legs and embroidered letters, emblazoning the calves and thighs of their blue jeans with giant Ps and Qs. Perhaps it's perfect, then, that PPQ stands for "pretty personal question." In this case, the question is, "How much are those jeans and can you buy them in America?"
Stay tuned for an answer, and in the meantime, check out the crave-worthy pink dress with the flirt skirt - the one that will certainly end up underneath a bomber jacket at a Claridge's Sweet Sixteen party, the same way a Luella one would have been there ten years earlier...
