Sjaak Hullekes and PPQ @ Boutiq 2010

As I already told you yesterday I was invited to the second edition of Boutiq. A fashion show of two designers in collabo with Wella Professionals where new collections and the inspiration behind these collections are show cased. The two designers were our own Sjaak Hullekes and the UK duo PPQ (Percy Parker and Amy Molyneaux). Host of the show: shoe designer Jan Jansen. What a man! He totally messed up his intro ('oh I lost one of my notes..' 'what's up now?' 'I think we can start the show.. or?'). But everyone loved it.

First up was the man who considers himself as his muse, Sjaak Hullekes, with his new F/W 2010 men's collection called Small Town Boy. A really dandy-like collection with nice shaped (a little too tight and too short but therefore stylish) pants and jackets. Great choice of fabrics and color scheme (pastels and terracotta mixed with greys, chocolate brown, whites). Best of it all: the bags and shoes (with blue socks). Check it out yourself.

After that PPQ hit the catwalk with their 'Fantasia'. I was not very impressed with their collection. A little bit too much (old fashioned) black velvet. Together with the gold not a winning combination in my eyes. The overall was a little bit too theatrical. I did love a few of the coats and ofcourse the shoes which were pieces of art on their own. And I must say that the clothes were very well made and beautiful techniques were used.

The ambiance was great, stylish location and a nice mix of people (celebrities, fashion people, journalists) and I got to meet some fellow bloggers like Le-Roi from CommeDesLeroi and Andy from Style Scrapbook. Make sure you check out their blogs too!
