It's here. The UK's most legendary clothes store has found a new home, smack bang in the middle of our famous fashion strip; Chapel Street.
With 1600 square feet of fashion, you should probably pack a lunch and set aside a few good hours of browse time.
Oh Topshop, let us count the ways we love thee. First you give Chapel Street a much-needed kick up the jacksie with your flagship store, now you bring London’s latest fashions to Highpoint.
Also kicking off this month – in the Chapel Street store only – is a new series called 'Edited By', which asks fashion tastemakers to curate their favourite garments from the new season's ranges. This scheme was a hit in London, with big names such as Pixie Geldof, Katie Shillingford and Julia Sarr Jamois taking part. It launches in Australia with Stevie Dance – an Australian-born, New York-raised stylist who is the Contributing Fashion Editor for Vogue Australia and a Fashion Director for POP Magazine. She was previously Fashion Director and then Editor of cult fashion title RUSSH. Catch Stevie's choices between April 4-14.
To see the latest season in full, pay either store a visit in April. In the meantime, here's Time Out's sneak preview...
The Debutante: Sharply cut fifties frocks in girlish fabrics, like organza, lace and jacquard. Florals, catseye sunnies, dainty brogues and a cute doctor’s bag are all highlights.
Arthaus: Modernist, minimalist looks with boxy coats, geometric shapes and strappy block heels.
Rave New World: Turning up the heat Ibiza style, as though the ’90s never went away. Zig-zags, tie-dye and psychedelic colours, but glowsticks not included.
Comic Book Girl: Pop prints, bright colours and sporty pieces that will make you feel like you can vault tall buildings.
Sports safari: The Med meets the Sahara with these rich prints and colours. Shrug on some Bear Grylls-style survival wear and desert boots, and mix it with cool linens and tribal or animal prints.
Memphis: Inspired by the postmodern art movement of the same name, as well as brightly coloured furniture and architecture by the likes of Ettore Sottass. All you really need to know is that with digital print techniques and pop art motifs, all eyes are on you.
Acid Surf: Match the girls’ Ibiza mood with your own Balearic-inspired surfwear and sportswear. Rainbow neons teamed with sun-bleached denim are the go.
Topman Lux: Create a suave-as-hell evening look with an edge, via modern shapes and high-end fabrics.
