PPQ Collaborates with Eshvi Jewellery at London Fashion Week

A ticket to PPQ’s London Fashion Week show is one of the most covetable around, and that’s proven by the army of celebs who eagerly want to sit in its front row.

The label is known for quirky aesthetics and signature printed patterns, and this season they opted for full on glamour with breathtaking gowns in an array of eye popping colours including vibrant yellow and orange for Spring 2014. Prints were mostly bold and often tropical on separates with the addition of printed scarves tied around the middle of outfits to create somewhat of a colour clashing effect. We were also treated to the inclusion of a few staple polka dotted numbers and classic LBDs.


If you've taken a look through images of the show, no doubt the dazzling choice of jewellery has also caught your eye, which included amazing jewel-encrusted rose gold cuffs, stunning chandelier earrings and thick chain chokers.


Eshvi Jewellery from PPQ show

The runway jewellery was created by new designer label Eshvi in collaboration with PPQ and was debuted on the runway during London Fashion Week. Eshvi is a London-based jewellery brand that creates statement pieces via attention to intricate design detail and the choice of vibrant colours, which of course, fits in perfectly with PPQ’s style.

You can find out more about their jewellery designs on Eshvi’s website.

Daria Werbowy Channels Prince (Looking Very, um, Tan) on the Cover of Vogue Russia

Styled with a pompadour mullet and a very dark tan (oy, on both counts), model Daria Werbowy appears on the October cover of Vogue Russia, photographed by Willy Vanderperre. According to images from the accompanying editorial, which have been posted to the tFS forums, the model is meant to be channeling pop legend Prince

The title of the spread translates to "Known as Prince." The intro copy reads, "Jackets with epaulets, bows, platform shoes: Fashions of the 80s superstar shown through the eyes of our contemporary street style." That's a rough translation, but you get the point: Vogue Russia wanted to pay homage to Prince and show how his iconic style is still relevant today. 

The fact that Werbowy manages to make the mullet look almost cool is a testament to her modeling ability, but you couldn't say the same for the second skin of bronzer piled on by the creative team (led by stylist Sarah Richardson, with makeup by Yadim).

On the cover, the Ukranian-Canadian model's tan is merely weird, but in the accompanying editorial (you can see it in full here) some shots are borderline-offensive. Prince has never publicly confirmed his ethnicity (he may be biracial, he may be African American), but he is certainly a person of color and Vogue Russia could have hired any number of black or multiracial models to represent him without the bronzer.

LUXX Ready to Wear Teases Western Canada Fashion Week Reveal

1 Luxx WCFW

So you couldn’t make it to New York Fashion Week this month. Pfft! Who needs the glass and glamour of the Big Apple when you have Western Canada Fashion Week on your doorstep? Ok, so maybe they’re not quite the same – let’s face it, even Toronto Fashion Week struggles to hold a candle to NY – but that’s not to say there won’t be some fabulous finds in Edmonton this season.

Kicking off on September 19, WCFW began its fashionable antics with an MC College showcase of talented graduate work. September 20 will then see a crammed schedule of shows that will include the Emerging Designers Competition, Le Monster Clothing and Heather Bouchier. You can check out the full roster here, but I think what many people are most looking forward to is the LUXX Ready to Wear catwalk that will take place on September 25.

You see, Edmonton’s Derek Jagodzinsky of LUXX is said to be debuting an exciting new native-inspired collection that’s generating many a blogger’s buzz. The designer drew approving nods last season for his line of seemingly simple day dresses with twists of panelling and backless capes, crafted in watery ombre shades of patterned silk. Asymmetrical hems and gathered skirts were plenty as Jagodzinsky concentrated on movement and soft silhouettes.

For those not so familiar with the LUXX brand, the ready-to-wear label is an Edmonton based company that designs and is hand produced solely in Alberta with small quantity runs. It’s a heritage company owned by Jagodzinsky (a University of Alberta graduate) and rooted in producing sophisticated, sleek, polished clothing for the modern woman of today.

Now gearing up for Spring 2014, Jagodzinsky posted a teasing snap to his Facebook page with the accompanying text, “This season I am doing a Native inspired collection with the four directions colors in a Modern way, so excited for it and show at Western Canada Fashion Week September 25th.” That has certainly pique my interest; how about yours?
