An elegant, refined collection
London Fashion Week: Topman Design

'Big Papa' aka, Philip Green unveiled an elegant, refined collection for Topman Design. The show conjured a 50's Parisian mood for this year's Autumn Winter collection. Elegant suiting was paired with thin, patterned neck ties, round neck sweaters and faux fur stoles. There was lots of heavy tweed - a clear trend for menswear this year. Printed shirts were very retro and trousers were high waisted, clinched at the back worn with heavy, buckled belts. Styling was simple yet effective, the silk neck scarves and small hoop earrings added a roguish flair. Jaquared evening suits were worn over white waistcoats, it was decadent and luxurious yet still very wearable. Models strolled out to the sounds of Chapel Club's, 'Surfacing' and Django Django's, 'WOR'. Romance and rebellion coalesce and result in a dandified rock 'n' roll aesthetic.
