On the runway, it was naughty 60s/70s boarding school girls sneaking out at night to play dress-up via the 80s and go partying. Outside the venue, it was full-on teen hysteria with hordes of teenage girls screaming for Kendall and Cara, iPhone cameras at the ready.
Country meets cocktails:
Citing the English countryside and the extravagance of a gilded cocktail hour as their references, the Topshop team kicked off the show at Tate Britain by sending out sexed-up kilts, Aran knits and fake fur-lined duffel coats – the latter worn over vinyl miniskirts or dandelion print dresses of the prim kind the Duchess of Cambridge might wear, only sliced way up the thigh.
Marabou and velvet:
The girls didn’t wear ruby slippers, but their red square-toed velvet shoes gave the impression they wanted to click their heels and be transported out of the muddy fields and into a nightclub, courtesy of the marabou-trimmed dresses and heavily embellished velvet frocks that closed the show.
