Percy Parker and Amy Molyneax have developed PPQ into a London label with a formidable following. This season saw the pair attract a crop of London celebrities including Peaches and Pixie Geldof, Fearne Cotton, Leigh Lezark and Alexa Chung.

Having its roots in the London club scene and Percy's music background has helped set this label apart and they've continued to develop a reputation for being individual so maybe it is not surprising that they chose to show their spring/summer collection on a line-up of exclusively black models.

The colour palette encompasses vibrant greens, bright orange and electric blue but there is also a series of monochrome outfits together with a series of black outfits. Pink and black polka dot appears in a baby doll dress and ruffled playsuit while a strong print echoing primative tribal symbols is worked into vest tops, skirts and African Queen maxi and figure-hugging dresses. Monochrome pieces include a stunning backless playsuit with a collared neck and bow and a beautiful black and white blazer coupled with white shorts.

PPQ's collaboration with Adidas was celebrated in the designer version of an Adidas-logo emblazoned on a column dress and a T-shirt. Models sported elegant coiled buns and accessories included socks, colourful sunglasses and big hats which injected fun into this eclectic collection.
