Call us old-fashioned (circa. 2011), but we still love a good fast fashion collaboration, so the news that Topshop had dropped its latest pairing — with Portuguese design duo Marques’Almeida — had us giving a *whoop whoop in the Brit exports honor.
Perpetually interested in youthful style, Marques’Almeida’s Topshop collection is 68-piece is a celebration of 90′s ‘youth code’ dressing. “We’ve always focused our research around teenagers and what we call the ‘youth code’ of dressing.” a Topshop statement from the duo read, “…working on this collection meant we could go back and dig deep into those archives, finding old editions of i-D and The Face, Corinne Day and Kate Moss shoots.”
Priced between $30 (camisole) and $500 (leather trousers), the line is definitely for the cool kids with plenty of separates that will appeal to the grown-ups too. Think taffeta tops, knit skirts, jersey triangle bras, a monikered denim shift dress, plenty of other denim goods and a few turtleneck dresses.
