Topshop Unique London Spring 2018 Fashion Week Style

Fashion Bytes: Topshop Goes Clubbing at London Fashion Week

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at London Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Topshop

The history: One of the first “fast fashion” chains in the world, Topshop was born as a youth-culture boutique in the 1960s. (It was one of the first stores to stock Mary Quant’s famous miniskirts.) The cool, affordable riffs on runway style captivated famous shoppers like the Spice Girls in the ’90s, and in 2002, the brand started sponsoring young designers for its first London Fashion Week shows. Ten years ago, Topshop launched its first capsule collection with Kate Moss; collaborators since then have included Kate Bosworth, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and even Beyoncé.

The designer: London fashion fixture Kate Phelan (who also works at Vogue UK, and has styled everyone from Zoë Kravitz to Victoria Beckham to, of course, Ms. Moss herself) created this collection with her team. In August, Phelan announced her impending departure from Topshop this September.

A Perfect Match: Topshop for Brides and Bridesmaids

Topshop Bride

No matter the occasion, we love it when our pals show up looking their best. And that certainly includes a special occasion like a wedding.

Topshop’s new collection of bride and bridesmaid dresses makes coordinating and complementing each other for the big day a spring breeze. Every elegant dress has its own romantic interpretation of the nuptial theme–from traditional white to something navy blue to a bouquet of pastel floral prints to vintage-inspired lace and retro embroidery. It’s enough to make a bride blush with pride.

So don’t worry about who’s outshining whom–there’s enough loveliness to go around.

Last Looks: Yesterday’s Runways at Preen, Mary Katrantzou, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith

With decades of industry experience, Vivienne Westwood has created an unapologetic design niche, this season breaking away from fall’s inescapable bohemian trend and opting for edgy London flair.VivienneWestwoodRedLabel_134_fw16Creating a collection for adventurous, intellectual femmes (so basically the Dame herself), the designer delivered an offering of juxtaposing designs wrapped into singular looks. She channeled her quirky spirit into slouchy, wearable power suits, evening dresses over tartan trousers and workwear shirts with covetable blazers that played on proportion and crisp tailoring. Of course, there were staple Westwood pieces like a cardinal red check Prince of Wales coat, floral-lined fedoras, statement prints and haphazardly draped silk dresses that prove to be timeless.

London Fashion Week: The Topshop Unique Look Everyone Will Be Wearing Next Fall

Like all the rest of us, Topshop Unique is right in the middle of the nostalgia for the old days and excitement about the brave new world. The Brit brand teamed up with fashion photography’s most forward-thinking documentarian and producer, Nick Knight, to live stream their fall show—and more. The SHOWStudio founder took over the Topshop Instagram and Periscope for three hours, and proceeded to use a 3D scanner to make sci-fi evidence of Topshop’s retro girls.

We had some time before the show to ask Creative Director Kate Phelan what inspired the season’s statement coats, natty sweaters, and slinky and sheer dresses—and the move to share them all with fans and followers in such a big-bang kinda way.
