Topshop Announces Its New Autumn/Winter Collections

Topshop have just launched their autumn/winter collections, High Performance, Out of the Wild, Dark Nouveau and Outsiders.

Topshop Announces Its New Autumn/Winter Collections

Continuing on from the summer’s sportswear inspired craze, High Performance features panelling, clashing textures and high-tech fabrics. Giving sportswear a tougher feel for winter, styles are layered, worn under and over one another, while panels of aertex, mesh, lace, jersey and leather sit together to create a new look. Finishes use sportswear technology; seams are fused, while edges are bonded and laser cut for precision. Prints are also central to this look and are at once tribal and technical – a car tyre print adorns a loose-fitting chiffon trouser while graphic prints adorn dresses which feature mesh panels.

Tapping into the colours of autumn, the Out of the Wild collection is founded upon the elements. Faux fur, bondage-style strapping, dishevelled fabrics and patchwork feature heavily, making textured knitwear and mixed materials central to this trend. With pieces that are knotted, laddered, and adorned with feathers and wild trims mixed with checks and tweed, the collection has an outdoors throw on feel. Softer elements combine with tougher pieces and feature photo real-prints inspired by nature; a leaf skeleton print decorates a pleated chiffon maxi skirt that also features animal markings and looks great teamed with cable knit knee high socks and oversized, chunky knits.

Topshop Unveils Exclusive Collection Designed By Up-And-Coming Fashion Star Mark Fast

Topshop has unveiled Mark Fast’s first capsule collection. The high-impact five piece knitwear collection echoes the aesthetics of Mark’s mainline label, featuring his trademark intricate knitwear and sexy skin-revealing panels.

Mark was inspired by sleek exotic birds for his collection for Topshop, particularly the shimmer of their wings and the movement of their feathers as they fly. This references his SS09 mainline collection, his first collection following his graduation from Central Saint Martins which captured the attention of the international fashion press.

Mark Fast is a Canadian born knitwear designer. His work is often inspired by the endless possibilities of lycra yarns, sculpting areas of tension and areas of volume over the body. He is also obsessed with texture, and the relationship between garments and the wearer’s body. All these things are evident in his latest exclusive work for Topshop.

The star of this five piece collection is a body-conscious high-impact dress which is heavily embellished with matte rubberised beads, adding weight and drama to the fine knitwear. A knitted skirt in dark grey hugs the hips, whilst a one-shoulder dress in pale pink is subtle and understated.

The Mark Fast collection is concluded with a lilac-grey crochet dress covered in tiny holes, so as to appear moth-eaten, and a black sleeveless mid-length dress.

Topshop And Teenage Cancer Trust Unite For Summer Bandstands Picnics Throughout The UK In June

Every day in the UK six young people are told they have cancer. Being a teenager is tough enough without having to deal with a serious illness that takes away your normal life at home, at school and with friends. Young people often feel isolated when facing a cancer diagnosis and rarely meet others going through the same experience. Teenage Cancer Trust believe that teenagers shouldn’t stop being teenagers because they have cancer and build specialist units in NHS hospitals where young people can be treated together, in an environment suited to their needs.

Topshop And Teenage Cancer Trust Unite For Summer Bandstands Picnics Throughout The UK In June

Throughout the month of June, Topshop has joined up with the Teenage Cancer Trust to help raise money through a host of special events and by selling dedicated product instores and online. The product lines consist of a bespoke print head scarf, kaftan and bag designed exclusively for Teenage Cancer Trust, as well as friendship bracelets which reflect the summer trends – a percentage of all sales goes to Teenage Cancer Trust.

The unique outdoor Bandstand Picnics will be hosted around the UK in June featuring many up-and-coming music artists such as electric trio Chew Lips, Welsh indie-popsters Los Campesinos and the hotly tipped Summer Camp, plus pop-rockers I Blame Coco.

All events will take place in the loveliest green spaces in London, Bristol, Liverpool and Birmingham and will be transformed into classic picnic style areas. To complement the picnic theme, Native Faces – a London based Face painting company – will provide festival decoration using Topshop Make Up. Sk8 House roller skates will also be available to hire, while sports day games will take place for amazing prizes. There’s a special sun-shaded area where you’ll be able to relax with sun cream on hand.
