LONDON COLLECTIONS: BACKSTAGE AT TOPMAN DESIGN AW13

We went backstage at yesterday’s Topman Design show and found ourself in a winter wonderland of down-filled anoraks, roll-necks and boys who were ready to climb Everest. What would Edmund Hillary say?

Topman Design occupies the unenviable position of having to toe the commercial Arcadia line while positioning itself in one of the most vibrant menswear scenes in the world – which is why its success and willingness to push boundaries is a real delight.

At the Old London Sorting Office, the AW13 Topman Design men came down from the slopes in roll necks, cropped peacoats and down-filled parkas in all shades of winter white, burgundy and navy. (Though our eyes were firmly on the eye-popping section of the show that came in hues of orange, acid yellow and hot pink.) Bronze compasses and hip flasks swinging off oversized rucksacks rounded off the ‘apres-ski explorer’ look.

If you want to relive all the alpine madness again, you can head over to the Topman 360°app, which lets gives you a panoramic view of the show from any angle you want. Other than from David Gandy’s lap.
