I know most of you will have probably seen these lookbook images everywhere by now & I don’t really see this blog as somewhere to post about all the latest fashion news, but I am far too excited about this not to share it myself!
I’ve been a huge fan of JW Anderson since his first womenswear collection, so I was extremely excited to hear the rumors of his collaboration with Topshop. I’ve felt a bit ‘blah’ about most of the recent Topshop collaborations & I didn’t want to get my hopes up too much, but I can safely say that this one has easily exceeded my expectations. I want almost every piece here, but especially the sweaters & shirts.
I would wear quite a few of these looks head to toe (minus the plaid trousers!), if I could afford to buy that many pieces, something which I rarely find myself saying about Topshop’s lookbooks. However looking past the brilliant styling, all of the items are classic wardrobe staples that could easily fit into most wardrobes. The chunky knit sweaters, stripes, oversized shirts & crisply tailored jackets are exactly the kind of things I buy over & over again. They’re chameleon pieces that can be worked into almost any style or look, seasonless & immune to changes in trends, the perfect investment pieces.
I love the grungey styling & look of the images nearly as much as I love the clothes, if not more. We all know I have a soft spot for grunge, but it’s so good, it’s almost convincing me that I need a pair of plaid trousers that I know I’d never wear… Oh, and some roller skates…
