Yesterday evening, Topshop Edited in Oxford Street gave us a little preview of their upcoming Unique collection AND collaborating with Mary K. Even if it was snowing like crazy outside, summer arrived inside, with cocktails and models wearing the Unique ss ’12 collection.
The Unique collection is inspired by Elizabeth Taylor in the iconic 1963 adaptation of Cleopatra and 90s hip-hop. So expect loads of Egyptian geometric patters and gold details.
But the highlight of the event was definitely the collaboration between Topshop and designer Mary Katrantzou with her eclectic floral patterns. Mary K. is a well renowned Greek fashion designer, and even if I’m not much of a print fan, Mary K’s print overdosed pieces always seduce me, if you go for print, you should go all the way!
The Unique Collection, inspired by Elizabeth Taylor:
The Unique collection is in stores now, and the Mary K. collection will officially be launched in Topshop on February 17th, the first day of London fashion Week.
What do you think about it? To much prints, or the exact right (over)dose?
