The upscale retail shop of Gokongwei-led franchisee RSSI Topshop launched their transitional trends this year. Spring and summer crooked their fingers and gave us the come hither look because Topshop makes you want to beg for a seasonal overhaul.
Inspired by all things synonymous with wild west glamour with a casual element, cancan ruffles and saloon frills detail shoulders, necklines and sleeves contrasted against eyelets, studding and lace up details. Prints are washed out, dip-dyed and faded. Dirty washed florals are dip-dyed, checked shirts are faded and muted in khaki greens and greyed blue. Motifs are horse, mustang and stallion inspired, taking centre stage on tee’s and jumpers with horseshoe prints highlighting the washed out colour palette. Footwear by Topshop includes customized cowboy boots and new biker inspiration.
How to wear the Saloon Style:
This trend is all about posh luxury mixed with an element of French kookiness. Inspired by all the signature brands that epitomize French Chic – think Chanel, Lanvin, YSL and Hermes. Details are fussy with ruffles, rosettes, bows and ribbon. Shapes are tailored to neat waisted pencil skirts, prim fitted shorts and classic French trench coats. Prints are kooky t-shirt motifs, spots and polka dots and styled with Hermes type printed scarves, fascinators and tarnished silver chains….Vive la France!
How to wear the Parisienne style:
A look inspired by the downtown cool aesthetic. Taking the lead from luxury sportswear, it is an effortless look of laid back urban style. This trend has a distinct 90’s feel, the era when brands such as DKNY and Calvin Klein first made their name for taking sportswear to a new luxurious level. This trend focuses on computer generated imagery, with high performance finishes, mesh inserts mixed with super sharp tailoring and metallic finishes.
How to wear the Topshop Downtown Trend:
Topshop is THE fashion destination on the British high street whose targets women ages 18-40 years old. Its Cebu branch is the 11th store nationwide.
