Topshop Unique launch their Resort 16 collection – think crushed velvet siting, heavily embellished leather and beatnik Breton stripes.
Now a mainstay on the fashion calendar, Topshop Unique present two catwalk collections and two pre-collections a year. Their Resort 16 collection journeys through the decadence of Soho’s nocturnal world – think a Pepto-Bismal pink crushed velvet two piece suit and dress, a draped silver lamé power blouse, a long-line leopard print shearling coat inspired by Margot Tennenbaum’s style, a thigh-grazing beatnik Breton knit dress, a series of heavily embellished leathers and a supple leather polo neck mini dress.
Nodding to the 80s – with the refinement of the present – the collection references great British style and heritage, building on from the classic Brit girl we saw on the runway at AW15.
The collection drops in stores November 2015.
