Topshop’s NEWGEN T-shirts: 10 Years of British Fashion
In celebration of the tenth anniversary of Topshop’s NEWGEN initiative (the British Fashion Council’s talent program which has brought to light some of the biggest up-and-coming names in the fashion community) Topshop has released a limited-edition collection of t-shirts designed by some NEWGEN designers.
This collection features 20 different t-shirts from 20 different names, for just a tiny fraction of their usual prices. The shirts are available online and in-store (yes, that means the New York and Chicago stores will have them as well), so grab one or two or all twenty while you can!
I got a good look at some of these shirts at work today. The Christopher Kane one needs no additional accessories — the mirrored decorations are gorgeous and the shirt is perfectly oversized. Wear this one with some pastel skinnies, or if you’re short enough, belt it and wear it as a dress.
My personal favorites include Gareth Pugh’s black and white graphics and Holly Fulton with her iconic drawing of lips sipping on a cityscape. My co-workers seemed particularly fond of the Jonathan Saunders design, and the more adventurous customers today gravitated towards Meadham Kirchhoff’s creepy doll print. And of course, Mary Katrantzou’s shirt was at the top of everyone’s list — her prints look just as amazing off the runway.
And one really awesome tip for Topshop Chicago shoppers — if you spend $100, you get an AMAZING free Mary Katrantzou tote bag, featuring a technicolor floral print. I love mine, and I’ll be rocking the bag to work at the Chicago History Museum tomorrow.
Happy shopping! I’m off to go live Tweet the Oscars tonight — follow @RustedRev!
