Topman Design hits the pubs and clubs for AW17

Topman Design look to the archetypal British traveller for AW17

2 years agoText by


Following on from an eclectic tribute to conventional British fashion at LFWM last season, Topman Design carried on their patriotic celebration for AW17. The show took place at London Fashion Week Men’s on Friday 6th January and featured an array of looks fit for any quintessential British traveller (or club-goer for that matter.)

Inspired by Britain’s pubs and clubs, essential garments included neon puffer jackets, graphic printed t-shirts and sweatshirt co-ords alongside rave-inspired oversized and stretched knitwear and a mix of romantic silhouettes. The collection included a range of ultra bright sportswear which was paired with unconventional suits and utilitarian workwear mostly in a relatively muted palette; grey, brown and beige.

Key looks from the collection involved pinstriped wool trousers, distressed animal print jackets and snippets of mismatched denim, not forgetting the psychedelic prints that adorned a number of mohair sweatshirts and oversized hoodies. To truly achieve the signature rave aesthetic, models paraded down the runway dripping in punk-inspired trinkets, earrings and wearing plenty of hair product. Each look could define a character you’d find in a typical 90s pub, both unique and part of the same tribe.
