“The Faded Glamour of the British Seaside” was what Topshop Unique were going for with their Ready To Wear SS 15 Collection, and boy did they get there. Add to that a little bit of disco dancing style and preppy tailoring and you have what is a very ‘now’ collection. Pleats a-plenty, bold and bright stripes, athletic themed crop tops and undoubtedly romantic diaphanous chiffon slips spoke of a seaside getaway where tennis and tea filled up the daily agenda. The colour palette was clean and crisp with tones of baby blue, muted tones of yellow, dusty pink and then shocks of fushia pink and dashing white. Odd aditons of black and darker reds grounded what could have been a very frou frou collection.
Not forgetting their core market, the fashionistas, A-line mod slips were paired with stroppy dancing heels fit for a day of meetings or a night on the town. Paired with simple flats most of the collection could be just as suitable for a summer getaway. One thing is for sure, summer 2015 is all about the leg. The collection drops March 18th 2015.
