SOCK HOP MODERN
London: British model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne opened the F/W 13 Topshop Unique presentation, a savvy nod to the indefatigable trend driven nature of the popular brand and an indication of the fun to come. 50s circle skirts were done up in patent leather, menswear overcoats trimmed in red shaved fur, silk jumpsuits printed with an abstract wallpaper motif and knit tops youthfully cropped. Fall’s digital floral matched sets became an unexpected highlight, seamlessly pairing a chunky mohair sweater with a below-the-knee sequin skirt. A handful of pastel ensembles accentuated the retro direction of a-line silhouettes, but this was no ordinary sock hop and asymmetric Mongolian lamb accents as well as experimental oversized outerwear capped off yet another confidently cool Topshop Unique season.—Nina Stotler
