U Is for Unique on the High Street…. Topshop

Topshop Unique Autumn Winter 2015

Ahh Topshop a long time high street favourite of mine and millions of other, now around the world. The “Super” High Street British brand has gone from strength to strength with no sign of slowing down. Why you say? The innate ability to “know” what we women want to wear, the ability to translate Catwalk trends down to high street prices (be them top end high street prices) but without losing the details that make it special. The way that they offer something for everyone and that brings me nicely on the Unique label that is designed by Topshop itself.

A label that yes is High Street but shows at London Fashion Week. A HIGH STREET label that manages to attract no other that Anna Wintor ( who wore Alexander McQueen, you can’t have everything), Kate Moss & little model, soon to be super model, sister Lottie to their front row. The pull to Topshop Uniques LFW is their ability to cleverly combine the current fashion zeitgeist whilst adding its own youthful and relevant spin.

Their Autumn Winter 2015 collection is about English heritage and a “rebellious streak”. That idea of tomboy toughness combined with a reluctant pretty for a series of Margot Tenenbaums, all smokey eyes, bleach-blonde hair and fuzzy coats worn dishevelled and sloping off the shoulder.

The way that Topshop style their clothes is also another key element to their success. A mix of the belted and bunched yet simultaneously a little unkempt. It was a true reflection of how girls want to look and how they wear their clothes.

There were cropped little knits over gymslips and super cool, padded puffa parkas in steel and navy. Pinafore dresses came later and then prom numbers that again showed some shoulders – be it through a sheer, sequined top half or a squared-off neckline.

Sweatshirts were beaded and fake fuzzy shearling – colourful and patchworked to give a romantic quality to the whole thing. Even tomboys have a soft side after all.

Almost like a little bit of your own Catwalk Fashion magic….. very clevor Sir Philip Green!
