MODEL CRUSH : MISS CARA D

Posted on August 10, 2012


It’s time for a love-in moment and today we’ve fallen for the lovely Miss Cara Delevingne. The model and socialite stole the fashion industry’s heart when her serious eyebrows and Cinderella-blonde hair landed her the ultimate campaign as the face of the achingly cool Burberry Prorsum and the work hasn’t stopped since. Spreads in fab French magazine Self Service, shoots for Chanel Cruise collection and starring on the cover of hip zine i-D; we just can’t stop waxing lyrical about the London teen (she’s only nineteen, you know!)

So, we squealed with excitement when we found out she’d be starring alongside Keira Knightley and Jude Law in the up coming cinema epic, Anna Karenina. The lucky lady swapped Bruce Weber - who shot her for LOVE magazine’s last issue - with Joe Wright behind the lens, for the film set in a very glamorous 19th century Russia. As if her new acting career wasn’t enough to fill her plate she still manages to hang out with hot rap property Azealia Banks (another office fave), dance the weekend away at the raucous Secret Garden Party and take a trip to Ibiza! Her Twitter account is one endless stream of fun.

TOPSHOP FOR OPENING CEREMONY

Posted on August 1, 2012

We’re waving the British flag, Opening Ceremony style! Following in the oh-so-fashionable footsteps of Rodarte, Chloe Sevigny and Maison Martin Margiela, Topshop has joined forces with cult US brand, Opening Ceremony to create a limited-edition collection in honour of their first ever UK store in London’s Covent Garden.

Dedicated to all things red, white and blue (with a requisite hint of black) – the Union Jack inspired capsule collection combines sporty enthusiasm with a patriotic twist. From  body-con silhouettes and a-line dresses to high-waisted knickers and luxe sweaters, it’s both minimal and directional and a guaranteed wardrobe win! Yes, Topshop and Opening Ceremony are the champions – even if we do say so ourselves…

So get your marks set because the line launches tomorrow on Topshop.com and is also available from our US flagship in New York and Opening Ceremony’s Covent Garden store – see you at the checkout!

ASHISH FOR TOPSHOP

Posted on July 20, 2012

Go on, be a good sport this summer with Ashish for Topshop

From the ‘King of Sequins’, comes a sportswear line with an ironic twist and it’s just landed on Topshop.com today!

Celebrating his 8th capsule collection for Topshop, Ashish Gupta shows off his trademark comic style with a winning concept designed for the underdog. The result? Varsity jackets and slouchy sweat sets featuring slogans such as ‘2nd place’ and ‘Don’t play games’…

Sporting ability aside, when it comes to shopping Ashish for Topshop, you’re guaranteed a sartorial win!

SENSATIONALIST

Posted on July 17, 2012

Prepare to spellbind this AW12…

Our next collection, Sensationalist is due to drop this Friday but we’re far too excited here at Topshop HQ to wait that long! Here’s a sneak peek at what to expect…

For Topshop’s Sensationalist, the only way is to shine. Jewel-encrusted utilitarian shirts are tucked into metallic snakeskin tailoring to create the ultimate high-low ensemble, while stud-embellishment adds intrigue to an all black canvas.

Fringed dresses meet patent knee-highs for daring dominatrix appeal and sequin party wear ensures the season goes off to a shimmering start.

It’s time to emerge out of the darkness – think moody, dark romance: a little gothic and very rock ‘n’ roll

STELLA SPORTSWEAR

Posted on July 12, 2012

We love Stella McCartney – in fact we’re a little obsessed here at Topshop HQ…

Stella

So you can only imagine our excitement when we heard that both Stella and the mighty Adidas had come together on a limited edition ‘My2012’ collection, designed to “project the energy of the Olympic year and inspire young women to engage in sports.”

Safe to say, our sporting fever has now skyrocketed! We’re joining tennis clubs, running to the office, hitting the gym; we’re even giving Prince Wills a run for his money on the Polo field (ok the last one may be a slight fib but you get the picture).

Forget the LBD, Stella has spoken – this summer it’s all about the GMSD (grey marl sweat dress). From bright and enigmatic running tanks and sunshine-yellow track shorts to graphic hoodies and water-resistant jackets, it’s time to get in the team spirit and hit the ground running, literally!

So keep your peepers peeled and muscles flexed as the ‘My2012’ collection will be coming to Topshop.com, Stratford and our Oxford Circus London Flagship very soon…

Until then, we’ll see you on the track!
