Topshop Unique Fall 2014–Looking like the wardrobe for the cool girl next door, the fall-winter 2014 collection from Topshop Unique mixes high street with editorial glamour. This season’s trend of fur is continued on in London with the use of faux color-blocking swatches and furry dresses and coats. The silhouette this season is full with bulky tunic coats belted above the waist. Some standouts of the lineup include a leather python printed coat, a multi-colored fur coat with red, black and pastels as well as a sheer top worn by Querelle Jansen that features modest embroideries over the bosom.
Topshop’s Worldly Bohemian – For its spring 2014 collection, Topshop Unique embraces bohemian style with an outing of worldly prints, relaxed silhouettes and romantic embellishments. A color palette of rich jewel tones such as emerald, sapphire blue and amber evokes the summer season. Besides what one would expect from a bohemian collection like maxi-length dresses and pretty prints, the Unique woman also lets out her artistic side with oversized, menswear inspired shirts and lightweight knits layered on top of wide-legged prints. Topshop Unique tapped one of Britain’s biggest exports, Cara Delevingne, to close the show in a white dress adorned with colored mirror pieces.
Unique’s Military Chic – Topshop Unique tapped into the fall season’s trend of military inspired pieces for its latest collection presented during London Fashion Week. Models hit the runway in army green, dark plum, ash grey and black. Silhouettes were lax yet modern with a rock and roll vibe that took hemlines to the upper thigh. Layering was a must for autumn with long coats placed on top of lightweight dresses and slouchy trousers. A vast change from last season’s Egyptian themed show, Unique appears to be growing up beginning with fall 2012.
Unique’s Egyptian Spring – Topshop Unique takes a trip to Ancient Egypt for its spring 2012 collection shown during London Fashion Week. Featuring hieroglyphic prints, gold accents and bandage dresses, the Unique girl stands out from the crowd in gold leaf hair and mid-drift baring tops. The showing also included t-shirts with the late Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra and scarab beetle prints paired with pyramid-shaped bags for a cheeky interpretation of the stylish theme.
Topshop Unique looks towards Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians for its fall 2011 inspiration where models sported Minnie Mouse hair, Cruella de Vil like outerwear and Dalmatian spots. Besides the spots, prints also included ’30s skylines, pinstripes and canine cutouts. Overall Unique presented a lively collection that goes to the dogs–literally.
