Last Fall, I happened to be in London during the London Fashion Week. At the school I attended, Topshop built their show space in the gardens of the school. It was amazing and I got to see a backstage look at the models, clothes, and attendees of the event all from my dorm window. I saw so many people including Anna Wintour, Tanya Burr, Daisy Lowe, Jordan Dunn, and Kate Moss.
Every year, Topshop always does it right for me. Whether it’s their make-up, socks, shoes, or clothes, they always bring something fresh and interesting to the fashion world. During London Fashion Week, Topshop Unique didn’t fail to impress this Midwestern girl.
The collection was “College-School-Sport-Girl-chic.” Is that a thing? I’m making it a thing. The A-line skirts were divine with colorful, frilly trim. There were beautiful nautical designs at the start of the show. The gorgeous striped tops! The leather accents! The patterns! The bags! I was drooling, okay? Drooling.
At the close of the show were the “night out” pieces, which are always my favorite. I was obsessed with the sheer nude dress that Cara was wearing to close the show. It flowed behind her so beautifully, and from my laptop screen I could see how it sparkled. I can’t imagine what it looked like in person.
My all time favorite piece from the collection, however, was look #34. The black lace with the peek-a-boo undies was divine. If I could have one dress that I had to wear forever, it would be that one.
The audience brought it too. My favorite looks from the day are from two of my all time favorite models: Daisy Lowe and Alexa Chung. Alexa adopted the Topshop theme of school girl, while Daisy’s look was more classic. What were some of your favorite looks?
