So I didn’t actually get to physically attend the TOPSHOP Unique show but I thought that I would do a short review on it because it is a brand that I am fond of. If I had to round up the collection in one word I wouldn’t know which word to use. I really enjoy the TOPSHOP Unique collections because I think TOPSHOP has set themselves apart from their high street contenders buy producing quality clothes that are catwalk worthy. Since then, H&M has followed suit by doing the same but, TOPSHOP really are the deacons in this regard.
When I saw the images from the SS14 I was a little confused. TOPSHOP usually pull out all the stops in terms of creativity but I think they could have done a bit better with this collection. I can say that yes, I think the clothes are wearable and love the impulses of the yellows and royal blues that were ribboned throughout the collection but the garments did look, a bit, ‘normal’ if I must say. The collection looked like some of the merchandise that you’d see in the normal side of TOPSHOP rather than the unique side that starts from at least £150.
Usually TOPSHOP’s collections live up to their ‘unique’ name but this collection did fall a little short from its brazen title. One thing I will say is that you could tell from the images alone that the garments are made from quality fabrics and I think that will be the reasoning behind (what I expect) to be their expensive prices.
None the less, well done to the TOPSHOP team.
