Hi there – its Shereen here – I have just started at MLPR and my first week has been very hectic indeed! The first thing I had on my schedule was the Pistol Panties SS’11 press day which was a very glamorous and exciting start.
It all happened in the most stunning penthouse suite at the Courthouse Hotel. If you haven’t discovered this hidden gem you should definitely check it out – just opposite Liberty’s on Great Malborough Street. It is a a magnificent listed building which used to be the Magistrates Court and still has the original court-room where John Lennon, Mick Jagger had trials for naughtiness in the 60s.
Anyway we were lucky to have the most sumptuous rooms to showcase all the fabulous swimwear from Pistol Panties, right at the top of the hotel. It was great meeting the designer Deborah Flemming who was telling us how the 1970s and octane glamour have inspired her new collection. The press loved it and it was so much fun bringing some sunshine and summer fun into gloomy February.
As you can see the collection is stunning and every bit as cool. A couple of my favourite pieces are the paint splash cut out swim-suit. love the pastel palette, alluring cut-out detailing and uber cool print. British Vogue also think so and featured it in the March issue.
My other favourite piece is this leopard print swimsuit, I love the animal inspired print in this seasons neon colours.
Talking of neon, it’s going to be huge for this spring, and Elle have already spotted a very cool bikini from the little sister label Pistols and featured in their March issue.
The John Lewis team also came along as Deborah designs the “Disco” swimwear range by Pistol Panties range, exclusively for John Lewis – but most excitingly she has also created the prettiest but sexy lingerie collection for them in contrasting Liberty print which was inspired by English summer picnics.
Oh for the summer to arrive – but if you want to be ahead of the game, all the collections are going in-store shortly (Selfridges will have large selection) and will be on-line at www.pistolpanties.com very soon.
