Tripping the Censors... FrostFrench's Next Phase... Dresses and Denim

Despite Coty's efforts, network censors have refused to allow the company to run the steamy ad Steven Meisel shot for its new Calvin Klein Secret Obsession.

London’s party scene continues to rumble on into the summer. On Wednesday, London label PPQ, known for its chic party dresses, held a cocktail party at its Conduit Street store, which they’ll soon be vacating for new premises in London. Guests including Peaches Geldof, Jaime Winstone, Henry Holland and Alfie Allen were all given free rein by hosts Percy Parker and Amy Molyneaux to kick up their heels as they sipped potent vodka cocktails, with scant regard for the fixtures and fittings. Molyneaux shared a few details of her label’s upcoming collaboration with Geldof, which she described as “goth, mod and punk.” The collection is set to launch in November.

Meanwhile, Holland dished about the television show he’s filming for the U.K.’s channel 4 station, which he’ll present with fashion plate Alexa Chung. “It’s going to be proper fashion, filming in young London designers’ studios,” said Holland, adding that he’ll take a film crew along with him to a dinner that he and Agyness Deyn are hosting in New York.

The same night, Diesel hosted a party with Dazed and Confused at its King’s Cross showroom, to celebrate the launch of the premium clothing collection, Diesel Black Gold. A crowd including Roisin Murphy, Ben Grimes, Alice Dellal, Tamsin Egerton, Carl Barat and Adele all gathered to check out images of the punkish collection displayed in the gallery space.
