PPQ designer Amy Molyneaux describes how the five key shapes of Spring Summer 2013 are inspired by varying degrees of triangles and triangles inverted; from a A line trapeze, to floor length gown. Their desire was to create a dress for all occasion’s with out any reference to the age bracket the customers might be in. They also threw in some psychedelic 60’s prints and colours to end up with a massive fashion “party”!
John Rocha took inspiration from light and time that he spent at a vineyard near Aix en Provence. Describing his collection as Happy! Love it everyone should be Happy.
Took his inspiration partly from Stanley Kubrick’s seminal movie 2001: A Space Odyssey which was made in 1968- when 2001 and seemed like along way away. Inspiration was also taken from the 1966 film Blown Up starring model Veruschka. The collection has been exclusively snapped up by Selfridges so it must be ok.
Three very different starting points in terms of inspiration and overall three different collection. However you can see similarities in terms of colour palette and silhouette.
