Topshop unique certainly kept things 'unique' with their choice of location at Waterloo's old eurostar terminal. After a 3minute walk after many ramps, we finally arrived at the platform transformed into the runway. Eagerly waiting for it to start I couldn't help notice the bar behind us and the many trays of champagne that were being served as well nibbles. Topshop had certainly pulled out the stops. Finally, it starts to a groovy funk beat. The models were olive in skin and were rocking the most amount of hair I have seen with yellows, pinks and greens dyed through the ends, the bigger the better I'm guessing, however tying in with a 70's feel, it made sense! Strutting to funk beats models were wearing tribal print cat suits where the cut of trousers were bootleg. Being even more hippie, models were wearing the flares with chiffon blouson blouses. Silk kaftans were another choice with the print botttoms accessorized with over sized sunglasses and high sandals with tassled straps. A very warm palette by Topshop including dusky pinks in prints, flame reds and corals taking shape in more kaftans and floaty dresses. Also if you thought batwings were banned, then topshop have revived them so either save yours before its too late or get the orders in! Camel was introduced through some more high rise bootleg cotton trousers with a contrasting texture of knit wear up top.
Topshop used a lot of embellishing in this collection taking the 70's free and hippie feel to giving it more edge. Frock coats were used over slim leg trousers but both the colours and the embellishing kept the look retro. The oversized sunnies worked really well here too. Topshop even introduced a little swimwear in metallic blues and zest greens keeping it funky. Last texture on the catwalk was seriously, and I mean seriously distressed denim with a lot of whole and the same applied to dusky pink leather. Once again both looks used heavy embellishing, tassled camel sandals and big hair to go.
