Another “famous” (hmm, maybe “notorious” is a better word) person is designing some stuff for a fashion retailer: this time it’s Pearl Lowe’s turn. She has collaborated with Peacocks to design a collection of party dresses for the Christmas season. Daughter Daisy is fronting the advertisements. The Pearl Lowe for Peacocks range is inspired by Bowie’s Hunky Dory album (?). I can see that the dresses have a sort of 70’s feeling, but I don’t really get the link with the Bowie album.

Lowe says, ‘Designing my collection for Peacocks has been a bit of a dream. I’ve taken inspiration from the things I love, classic vintage shapes, intricate detail, lace and wonderful textiles. I’m very proud of the designs and can’t wait to see them on the high street. It was important from the start that my designs were accessible and everything is under £40.’
Take a look at some dresses from the collection:
Black/gold Lurex-lace prom dress, £40
Red lace mini-tea dress, £35
Angel-sleeve, black jersey dress with beaded waistband, £35
Black sequinned wrap-dress, £40
I never been a fan of Pearl, but the dresses look great. Who cares about the tag when the dress is fabulous? And a big plus is that they’re affordable!
Pearl’s dresses will hit Peacocks stores on November 2 and will cost between £35 and £40. Available in UK sizes 8 to 16.
