For AW15, Topshop UNIQUE presents a covetable collection of sixties-inspired separates composed of tactile fabrics such as plush velvet, luxurious shearling and patent leather. Creative director, Kate Phelan, visualised ‘an aristocratic UNIQUE girl leaving her country pile for a weekend under the dazzling lights of London’ – an image I aspire to.
In homage to the English countryside, dandelion print adorned high-necked blouses and prim dresses, whilst appearing in an intricately-embellished form on A-line mini skirts and dresses. Cable-knits were re-imagined in sky blue and mustard yellow and tucked in to corduroy skinny flares, or layered beneath lustrous pea coats. The block-heeled pumps tick all the need-it-now boxes, with their squared-off toes, metal eyelet detailing and velvet finish.
