Style setter Topshop has consistently been a favored label for fashionistas worldwide – laying down the fashion law from London Fashion Week to your local Topshop boutique. Here is The Untitled’s briefing on the list of fashion brands they love that you should keep an eye out for.
Notable collaborations include Sophia Webster, Unique, J.W.Anderson, Marios Schwab, Nasir Mazhar, Marques’Almeida, Fashion East, Meadham Kirchhoff, Lucas Nascimento, Pistol Panties by Deborah Fleming, Kate Bosworth for The Collection, Kate Moss, Returning reign – and of course, Maarten Van Der Horst.
A label that started back in 1964 with modest beginnings in the buried basement of a department store has now grown to own over three hundred stores in the UK alone. The au courant brand is the flagship mecca for cool girls rendering the eccentric British style worldwide. Topshop has collaborated with the industry’s hottest designers on collections with the likes of Christopher Kane, Celia Birtwell, David Koma and Marios Schwab to name a few.
The Untitled Magazine focuses on a few designers who caught our attention with their jaw-dropping aesthetics.
Topshop is partnering with ‘Reclaim To Wear’ the second time around. They will be launching a capsule summer wardrobe with an ethical twist. A collection capturing the innocence of double-vented pencil skirts, elegant camisoles, and oversized shirts – made from recycled materials. Prices range from $50-$120. The collection launched this past June in Topshop.com.
Now, don’t ever overlook Maarten Van Der Horst‘s past and present collaborations with Topshop. You’ll have nobody to blame but yourself for the poor judgment. Horst’s second collaboration focuses chiefly on graffiti-inspired prints and pragmatic detailing. His past works have pivoted in transforming simple leather jackets, denim jeans, and silk garments with rioting prints. His boxy sweaters, oversize shirts, and loosely tailored shirt dresses are just what you need to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe.
Mary Katrantzou for Topshop, is a solid choice. Its much-anticipated high-street collection hallmarks the London-based designer’s easily distinguishable line. The line of stunning floral prints, various splashes of color and cutting structured garments is just what you need for spring.
Kate Moss returns to Topshop after four years. Her reign began in ’07 and ended in 2010. Her collection will be released come April 2014, and is mostly inspired by her personal wardrobe. With fearless design aesthetic, it is another collection made in sartorial heaven. The true British icon launched her return by posing in the windows of the Topshop Oxford Street store, pictured above. Dressed in a charming floral piece, Kate Moss thrilled all the spectators around. Moss made a statement of how pleased she is to be back on the Topshop board.
Topshop pairs up with Meadham Kirchhoff again – this time with a princess meets goth ensemble. Benjamin Kirchhoff and Edward Meadham, the fashion authorities of quirky and whimsical clothing, are coming back with a darling new collection. The eighty designs are set to hit stores later this month on the 21st and were inspired by glam rock and Marilyn Manson. The collection titled ‘The Cherrys’ showcases the duo designer’s romantic side. Expect sequins, furs, bows, frills, and a legitimate amount of couture lace. The haunting assemblage plays towards a passionate Wednesday Wendy vibe, propelling their clothes into new vogue realms.
