PEACHES GELDOF DRESSES UP: Peaches Geldof already has a magazine column, DJ gigs and a television show for MTV in the U.K. under her belt. So launching a clothing line was the obvious next step for the Brit girl-about-town, who has unveiled a 10-piece capsule collection for the London label PPQ at Selfridges in London, made up of chiffon, velvet and lace dresses with a Gothic edge. “I’ve always been interested in fashion ever since I was a little girl playing dress-up,” said Geldof, who’s now based in Williamsburg in Brooklyn. And, while Geldof said the collaboration came about through her scenester connections — she got to know PPQ designers Percy Parker and Amy Molyneux “while dating a boy signed to their record label, 1234,” — the pieces are also inspired by her social circle’s look, which Geldof said involves “a lot of black, white and lace. The whole collection has a vintage feel to it, as I’m a big vintage buyer,” said Geldof. “I also looked at icons like Siouxsie Sioux and Robert Smith, and took notes from Gothic novels like 'Dracula' — the cape came about while I read this.” Geldof said she expects the project to span “at least several seasons,” and her spring collection is in production.
