Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited to view the Arcadia AW collections. Arcadia run Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, to name a few. I was obviously particularly excited to sneak a preview of the Topshop collection and I was NOT disappointed – however, Miss Selfridge delivered an incredible collection and Dorothy Perkins particularly surprised me. The only bad news is that we have to wait for aaaaages until these incred designs hit the stores!
Alot of the pieces from Topshop’s AW collection seems to theme around ‘pretty punk’. Grungy but still feminine and a LOT of pink. I absolutely love the sheer jumper with the bra underneath and all the writing over the pieces. I have always loved painted text on clothing.
Every now and then, Topshop release a KILLER pair of leather trousers. GRAB them whilst they are there otherwise you will definitely regret it.
I am absolutely loving the Carrie Bradshaw style shirt with the bralette over the top! Also another big trend that I’m seeing is the casual hoodie underneath a structured trench coat.
Massive vintage vibes! RED LEATHER, high waisted trousers with 70’s style belts… oh my.
So the dress above and below are definitely going to be in my wardrobe as soon as I can get my hands on them. I am absolutely in LOVE.
Fur bomber jacket… NEXT LEVELS.
And finally, I’m going to end the Topshop collection with this period style dress. I have not stopped thinking about it since it first caught my eye. It is so elegant and the choker absolutely makes it.
Miss Selfridge has certainly delivered. With a clear theme of either floral or B&W chic the items are creative and drop dead gorrrrgeous. P.S. I NEED THE BEIGE SANDALS BELOW.
This coat absolutely screams 90’s/early 2000’s Miss Selfridge… I’m pretty certain they stocked this coat back then as it’s very familiar, maybe my mum had it or something… but I need it.
Love the cropped element of this leopard print fur coat!
Get in my wardrobe!!!!
These shoes are also my favourite from the day.. the shirts below I’m absolutely loving too. CHIC AF.
Dorothy Perkins has COMPLETELY upped their game. With a whole new team of designers, I predict a whole new audience purchasing their clothes including myself. These Miu Miu inspired shoes stole the show from their collection and so did their other booties. Following Fendi’s lead – DP has also done a range of handbags with collectable/different style straps.
