The second show of the morning was Topman Design which took place at the spectacular setting of The Royal Opera House. As the models sauntered down the runway, the ultimate Topman Design boy was unveiled and one thing became abundantly clear- This was one cool kid.
"The Topman Design Spring Summer 2011 boy is found hanging around the record shops of Brighton, rifling through the vintage stores for authentic pieces and second hand finds. Slightly psychedelic and mod in style, he is not afraid to mix old with new, techno with retro, honing his look through accessories and styling".
Touting sleek charcoal suits with vibrant shirts peeking out underneath, the retro feel continued with washed authentic vintage sweats tucked into shorts and teamed with matching parkas in lustrous nylons. Stand out pieces included bright knits emblazoned with kitsch vintage motifs while key accessories included over-sized military canvas bags heavily decorated with old-school tie pins as well as a tribute to The Beatles with John Lennon-esque circular shades.
Topman Design's signature silhouette this season is modern and structured with a short torso and high waisted shape created with the aid of the accessory du jour- The skinny brown belt.
