Cherry Pie : Topshop Unique Autumn/Winter LFW 2011

Topshop Unique Autumn/Winter LFW 2011

So, I mentioned yesterday that I would be watching the Topshop Unique live stream and boy was I impressed!

The show kicked off with the 101 Dalmations Disney tune which was a real indication of what to come...Dalmation print galore! Dalmation print is not something you'd expect on the runways of LFW, but it worked so well.

There was a distinct Cruella De Vil theme with the faux fur coats and trim but it worked nicely with the knee high socks, lace tights and animal print chunky heels.

Elasticated cropped trousers in a variety of prints were kooky and fun and I loved the print party dresses and the tailored silk shirts. The runway models were all sporting smoky look eyes with cute painted dog noses and their hair styled to possibly represent dog ears.

I knew I'd love the Topshop Unique show, so I was really not disappointed. Some of the pieces are particularly wearable if you think you can pull of Dalmation print. Leopard print jumpsuits, midi skirts and cropped trousers are still going strong and the white lace tights reminded me of the socks I used to wear to school as a child.

When I was younger I sported an animal print fur coat and now I wish I'd kept it as the Cruella De Vil trend is definitely coming back!

  1. I was speechless after I saw the show! I needed a moment to think about whether I absolutely adored it or I found it cringeworthy, haha! But I think I LOVED it! :) It's definitely memorable, right? Everyone's talking about it, and mentioning Cruella and everything! Perfect marketing :)

  2. It was lovely to see peter pan collars still in full force! Really liked the venue too.
