NEW YORK, NY September 20. 2014/FR/
The spring/summer 2014 impressive Topshop Unique show space was situated within leafy Regent’s Park, a far cry from the bustle of the British Fashion Council’s base at Somerset House. The front row this season was littered with the television, film and music stars of the moment including Ellie Goulding, Daisy Lowe, Pixie Geldof, Sadie Frost, and the beautiful indie sibling trio, Haim.Phillip Green took centre stage, sandwiched between none other than Kate Moss and Anna Wintour herself. Even the catwalk was crawling with fame, with models du jour Jordan Dunn, Cara Delevigne, andRosie Tapner walking this season.
Emma Farrow and Kate Phelan showed a stellar collection. Entitled “Heat Rave.” Topshop Unique’s SS14 collection is for the young and the carefree and most importantly, it’s a collection for everyone. Items were layered and casually thrown together – the ideal post-beach getup of shirt-dresses and loose hoodies. Denim played a large role in the collection, as did denim hues. Yellows and greens also stuck out as key shades.
Shoes were sensible – there were no heels on the catwalk – it was all about effortless cool (and, also, perhaps because stilettos on a grass runway would have been cause for disaster). Hair was dishevelled and make-up was morning-after sultry. The Topshop Unique SS14 girl is nonchalantly cool.
