To Top

topmandesign Topman Design Fall/Winter 2012 | London Fashion Week

After Midnight–Taking a dark turn, Topman Design channels a young Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe for their fall/winter 2012 outing. Mixing and meshing rich textures for a rebellious season, a traditional English sensibility is juxtaposed with a relative edge. Alternating between tapered trousers and pants of PVC, Topman’s hero demonstrates a knack for clean dress with a modern spin. Translating Mapplethorpe’s lily print into graphic dressed silk shirting, the finishing touch to a collection of lush knits and structured outerwear is a range of rosaries, crafted by Husam El Odeh.
