What a collection from Topshop Unique for Spring Summer 09. Young and fresh but with more than a hint of eighties nostalgia. The Topshop brand always evokes a certain amount of nostalgia for me, with my memories of scouting the stores for the latest fashion on a Saturday afternoon with my teenage friends. After a session of trying on every possible combination of the latest must have items, we all trotted off home to put on our newly bought clothes and fluff our hair up for the Saturday night roller disco.
The Topshop Unique label has taken Topshop to the next level for me and whilst keeping that firm association with high fashion it has always been recognised for, it has set itself apart from some of its high street rivals. At London fashion week, the collection of eighties Bananarama style headscarfs was something I am just dying to try (again). It wasn't all about the eighties though, there was a touch of neoteric style that kept the look young and upto date.
