FIRST LOOK: TOPSHOP
no dalmatians were harmed in the making of this collection.
First Cruella De Vil gets her own makeup line from M.A.C. Now she’s got an entire collection devoted to her sinister style, thanks to Topshop Unique. Their Fall collection is totally dotty, and not just in the literal sense. It’s also a kind of madcap, slapdash take on 1930′s New York City, with oversize “fur,” drop waist sheer dresses, and art deco lettering stenciled across many tees and bikinis.Those details added some depth to the collection, but really, it belonged to the spots. They covered the kill-for-it booties and Mary Jane heels. They splatted on fake fur jackets, sleek blazers, and boxy bags. They even coated the models’ nails - an effect achieved with Topshop’s White Witch base coat, and Chanel Black Satin droplets. (Yes, our resident DIY kid Ali Hoffman will show you a detailed how-to very soon.)The final song of the show was Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog,” but let’s be honest - if you’re a girl between the ages of 12 and 35 who likes to have fun (sometimes too much fun) with your clothes, the only anthem for Topshop’s latest heap is “Puppy Love.” Take that, Justin Bieber.See backstage photos, plus full shots of the runway, in our galleries!
