Every season sees a new Topshop space unveiled; this season’s concrete backdrop in the very heart of the Tate Modern was the perfect setting for the brand’s renowned androgynous aesthetic and muted tones. Covering the show for Wonderland this season, I found myself awkwardly sitting behind the glittering front row of Olivia Palermo, Kate Bosworth, Pixie Geldof and a boy from One Direction who's name I'm never quite sure of.
Blur vaulted us back to the mid 90’s, toes tapped as Cara Delevingne breezed down the catwalk with an air of nonchalance.
The show unfolded with a sleek sensibility; models paraded the catwalk in oversized long line bomber jackets, calf-length flippy skirts and court shoes paired with ankle socks. What started sensibly soon morphed into a parade of slivers of skin and sequins. Black outwear was injected with blood red. Textures were mish mashed together; matt slouchy jumpers sat upon glossy calf-length skirts, fuzzy fur snoods came married against satin pastel dresses.
What begun with “girls who are boys”, as Blur so eloquently put it, ended on princess pink hues and glitz that would cause any three year old girl to turn green with envy.

The AW13 Topshop Unique girl is a power dresser; she’s the talk of the office with her classic style and structured silhouettes during the week but come 6pm Friday, she puts on her strappy pink shoes and sparkles and is the life and soul of the 90’s Brit pop party.
