LFW S/S '11 - Topshop Unique

Moving with the times, as always, Topshop's Unique show was streamed live from the new venue at Waterloo on Saturday afternoon. So with an armchair pulled up close to the TV and a giant pair of cans to soak up every sound, I was able to convince myself that I was on the front row...well almost! The look was ethereal festival fashion meets Seventies glamour via Studio 54.
Prints were key in sumptuous chiffon's and silks that took flight as the models strutted down the runway. The sunset colour pallet of burnt oranges, hot pinks and crimsons reminded me of the famous 'man in the moon' of Studio 54 with maxi's, flared trousers and sequin embellishment also giving a nod to the hedonistic decade. Fringed accessories and candy coloured denim jackets look set to be future best sellers. 

To add even more excitement to the occasion, Topshop's website plucked several outfits from the collection, which were available to buy whilst watching! Talk about fast fashion!
This stunning print with mythical white horses got me thinking of the iconic image of Bianca Jagger riding into Studio 54 on her 30th birthday
Studio 54's 'Man in the Moon'
This laser cut blouse and the shimmering champagne coloured skirt were two of my favourites.
