This week, Topshop Unique graced the catwalks of London Fashion Week with their new S/S12 collection, and I absolutley could not wait to see the images (seeing as I sadly couldnt attend this year- work commitments!). I love the Topshop Unique label for one very obvious reason – the garments are that little bit ‘off the wall’ and individual – hence the brand name ‘Topshop Unique’ – and immitate that high-end designer look.
As soon as I heard the show had finished, I was checking online at every possible moment to get a glimpse of this collection. So, to summarise the key looks, think of a striking black and gold summer, with glitzy gold hair pieces and metallic gold materials. Bandage wrapped dresses give an Egytpian mummy-style look, with drawstring pants adding a sporty edge.
Fabrics are luxurious, mixing liquid leathers, stretchy jersey and silky velvets with embellished embroidery and sequins. In terms of beauty, this glamourous Topshop Unique SS12 look conicides with sleek hair and minimal make up. The collection itself has been describes as the ‘Twisted Gold’ look…
Here’s a round up of the fabulous outfits. I absolutley adore a glitzy combination of black and gold, and although it’s unusual to focus so much on black for the sunnier seasons, this dark style combined with metallic gold gives a subtle sheen look.
