Runway Report: Topshop Unique Fall 2017

Topshop Unique presented in The Tate Museum this year, lining the corridor to the main room with juices, champagne and other refreshments, foreshadowing one hell of the party for Fall 2017.

With a bumping soundtrack and a killer model lineup (with a British focus), Topshop showed that their girl was searching for something a bit more eclectic and eccentric this season all the while maintaining her urban roots. This, in turn, made it so there was a little something for all of their young consumers just as long as they’re looking to beam rays of optimism with their ensembles.

There were fanciful florals in silk thigh-high slit dresses and skirts paired with colorful embroidered jumpers. Great outerwear like nubby shearling coats in a mix of vibrant colors thrown over everything from rainbow striped swimwear to fanciful jumpsuits. Along with multiple layers of shirting, tweeds, weathered denim and bias-cut dresses, the bottom line? Keep it fluid and mix and match as you please.

Without a dedicated color palette, an elaborate mix of texture and patterns while playing with a free sense of layering provided a bit more cohesion from start to finish. However, it was really a ‘come one, come all’ feeling that we came away with in the end. From the striped pants and beaded black jumper that opened the show to the sheer, nearly nude embellished halter dress that closed it, the tomboy, tailored, polished and even the glamorous flirt, are sure to be excited about the first delivery of next season.
