LFW Day 3; 20/02/2011;

Best thing about Topshop, apart from that amayonaising lemon-ginger ice tea before the show, is that you’ll know where to find the IKEA scarf hanger dress if you really wanted it. The 101 Dalmatians was the theme with Cruella deVille’s cackling opening the show – already a win in my book. Although not so crazy for the collection overall, the fact that they’ve moved on from boho I’d give it another win.

  3. Maybe the pieces would me nice as individual pieces but all thrown together it looks like someone has just raided the nearest charity shop! I suppose catwalks are meant to be a bit mishmashy but its just a little too complex for my liking…

    Really nice photography, as ever! And those pre-show iced teas have my mouth watering!

    That’s sort of what I thought, well put though! Yarh it was mishmashy and I guess it is a highstreet store in the end, but I felt like it was missing that really strong gold thread of some sort of awesomeness… maybe it’s just not me. Some love it, some hate it ;)

    @Shini,

    I guess I don’t really get catwalk collections anyway, true once in a while one is amazing but a lot of the time its just a blur of so many people trying to be new and different with models that look exactly the same. And when so many people try and achieve that… it all ends up looking the same I’m sorry to say.

  4. Looks like an awesome show. I always love TopShop Unique. It is truly what it says it is. This collection looks like a bit of a mish mash, I am excited to see how it translates in stores.

  5. Stunning shots shini.
    I’m a little disappointed with the Unique collection though, it’s anything but unfortunately. I’d probably wear most of it but it looks a little tired. It’s bits of old bella freud, 00′s prada and last SS miu miu. Anyhoo, love the shot of QM and other lady (I’m frightened to say who I *think* it is and be a complete numpty!)

  6. I love the aesthetic of the show but I am not crazy about the clothes either. Your comment on the IKEA scarf hanger actually made me laugh. SO TRUE!

  10. This a brilliantly genius theme and a show and a collection! It literally has everyone talking, and either people love it or they hate it but that’s ok because it has that hype and it’s instantly recognizable.. that;s SO hard to do! :) I love all your shots Shini! you need a picture of yourself too though :)

  25. I watched the livestream and despite liking some pieces, the collection overall wasn’t very much pleasing. The shoes on the other hand, were amazing.

  27. Whoa that’s a lot to take in. The dalmatian print heels are delightful, but the rest is going to take a bit for me to process.

  28. Those drinks look by far the best part of the show! I do love the dog print on the dress though… it would be a nice compliment to my cat print shirt :) But not feeling the dress itself sadly.

  31. They had me with the iced tea in the first picture even if I’m not crazy about Dalmantions- little too Cruella…

  32. of all the venues this season, the topshop venue is the best in my personal opinion in terms of the sheer amount of space in the thing! Great shots and I love the writing.

  41. I am so loving that dress with the cutout circles and the dalmatian printed heels. The looks are overwhelming collectively. I’d love to see the collection on print or digital lookbook. Hope all has been well!
