Love. Want. Need. Topshop Unique Dress
14th March 2011
Words Penny Brewer
From the Spring/Summer 11 CollectionTopshop Unique is now a firm fixture and favoured highlight of London Fashion Week. With the usual excitement and anticipation, last season crimped haired models were sent down the catwalk, floating on perspex wedges and perfectly nailing the now current 70's trend.
An oversized smock dress sees boho chic and glam rock mix in a psychedelic swirl of smoke printed silk chiffon. Airy light and fluid, details include sheer panels, gold rope piping and a diamante fastening,
Other pieces from the collection tell a tale of mysticism, fantasy and the ethereal cosmos in a palette of hot pinks, neutral nudes, deep purples, and ochre yellows. Silhouettes are lean and long with movement added by boisterous flares on sleeves and at ankles, fringed jackets and layers of printed silk billowing dramatically. With all the glamour of Studio 54 and the casual charm of an elegant hippy pieces are whimsical and feminine but not sickly sweet, they're free spirited, playful and bold.
