Founded by Percy Parker and Amy Molyneaux, and famous for luxurious and modern, but fuss-free designs and it's music links, (PPQ also runs a record label), PPQ is the perfect fit for Peaches' public image. After modelling for the PPQ catwalk in 2008, it seemed right that the label was the first to launch a clothing collection on her behalf. Designing a range of dresses, bags and separates, Peaches said she drew inspiration from the Japanese street styles of Harajuku, especially the Gothic Lolita look; ring any bells with Gwen Stefani and her LAMB label anyone? Having seen the collection I think that while it plays it safer than it needs to, it's still incredibly stylish, and has a very 'Peaches' feel about it, my favourite pieces from the collection are the 'scripture party dress' (above) and this patent leather vanity bag.Despite being the former girlfriend of love-of-my-life-to-be Faris Rotter, I've always had a soft spot for Peaches, the quintessential London girl about town, who knows how to cut a look and hangs out with the London rich and fabulous, but since watching her one off reality tv show, 'Peaches: Disappear Here', I've not been so sure. Did anyone see it? Well since the it's main stage Sunday, prime time slot only attracted 8,000 viewers, the odds are that you haven't, so let me summarise it for you: it was shocking. Meant to show the process of Peaches creating her own magazine (Disappear Here), taking it from brainwave to print, the programme showed not much more than Peaches looking great in amazing outfits, and being a "wee bit" of a bitch. Contrary to her usual 'butter wouldn't melt' expression, Peaches came across as a self obsessed, arrogant bully, ridiculing her colleagues and at one point reducing one writer to tears with her sharp tongue. The portrait of Peaches was so unflattering that I was convinced she'd been stitched up by a cruel production team, except it turns out that the whole thing was produced by no less than her father's production company, which begs the question - is this what she's always like, because if that's how she behaves in front of the cameras, I wouldn't want to cross her when the cameraman is on his break ... But even if her on screen persona isn't a sweet as her blond curls might suggest, her collection is still really cute, and definitely worth a gander online at Oli.
