Topshop AW12 Old Billingsgate Market, London Fashion Week

I can’t highlight enough how admirable Topshop is when it comes to spatial arrangement – seated in the first row or standing in the back the view is simply spectacular. Thankfully there’s also none of that courteous yet begrudging ‘nod’ to online media so popular in other shows that help fill the space near the walls but eventually fill the blogosphere with badly taken photos of model’s scalps. Topshop Unique truly is one of my most anticipated shows at LFW, not just because time and time again they being the frothiest milkshake that naturally pull the boys and buoys, but because they seem to give a lot of effort to show respect to all individuals of media. Well, I’ll stop there before I start taking the butt-kissing to second base, but you get my drift. The collection was spot-on and right up my alley – military, utilitarian, urban, sharp cuts and great draping – absolutely wearable. Less of the gimmick and more of the chic – HEY THAT RHYMES – overall a more sophisticated package with pieces that might as well end up as timeless wardrobe staples.

  17. I’m kind of loving the nod to the overalls… I recently went to the Diego Rivera exhibit at MoMA and have been constantly thinking about the utilitarian, industrial theme. Thank you for sharing!

  24. THANK YOU, Shini, for pointing out the fact that FW these days seems to be all about excited girls with wanting photography skills and less about the fact that it is a TRADE show of designers/the fashion industry showing (to finally sell) their creations. Beautiful photography as always – and I can actually SEE THE DESIGNS, yay!

  26. Great show and images! Unfortunately not for me as along with a lot of people begrudgingly made to go stand on a balcony, with a standing ticket the view of the show was all scalps. Alas further if you unfortunately stuck behind someone on the balcony and you can kiss away your hopes of seeing anything! Almost not worth it if you have a stand ticket at the Topshop venue.
