The UK mega retailer Topshop & Topman sets up shop in Sydney

Topshop & Topman is finally here and it’s huge. Topshop international's Creative Director Kate Phelan, a former fashion director at British Vogue, says, "The Sydney store really is a big slice of Oxford Circus [their flagship store in London] – it's a fashion playground that the Sydney girl is going to love."

There was speculation as to whether the quality, frequency and seasonality of the iconic British chain would translate into the Australian market, but fear not: it looks like they have nailed it. Keep your eyes peeled for the JW Anderson collection – a collaboration with the young Irish designer, which fuses luxury tailoring with classic staples, tartans and clashing prints. Topshop’s Unique line is also in store: it has shown at London Fashion Week for the past four years and offers higher-end, minimalist looks.

Sprawled across four levels in the former Gowings building, the mega-store houses personal shopping suites, shoes and accessories, a make-up section, capsule/collaborative collections and full lines of both Topshop and Topman, delivered twice-weekly direct from the UK. The onslaught of Topshop-mania is well and truly here.
