I’m not sure whether it’s down to its wearability, its relevance or its status but somehow Topshop ALWAYS draws the in crowd at fashion week. This year their SS11 collection was no exception. The venue alone caused quite a stir – held in the ex Eurostar tunnel in Waterloo, the glass tunnel gave the fashion crowd a welcomed opportunity to sit and observe the collection in perfect sun glass sync.
As usual the FROW (front row) was full of the fash pack, including a pristine Olivia Palermo, a grungy Pixie Geldof and a glowing Lily Allen – all keen to see what the trend setting shop would dictate for our SS11 wardrobes. Warm Autumnal colours streamed through the collection, and a 70’s vibe dominated. Think afro’s, think platforms and lots of decadent glamour.
The collection was daring, vibrant and sure to make the 70’s big news next season. So if Phillip Green is to be trusted then the other side of this blustery season keep your eyes peeled for metallic bikini’s, tye dye dresses and maxi style skirts. Amaze.
