SS09 trend report: Topshop
Sport Nouveau, Memphis, Voodoo, Aztec and Eighties were just some of the words and phrases bandied about at the Topshop press day. Unlike Miss Selfridge, Topshop can take inspiration from a bygone era and style it so it looks new for now. That’s just what they’ve done for SS09 with tribal graphic T-shirts and leggings giving a gentle nod to Bodymap (Google them) but adding a noughties edge with silk boyfriend blazers, suede perforated peg pants and roll-up jeans. Last summer’s Liberty sprigs reappear next season along with plaid flannel shirts – this time reworked with heavy studding- and ’80s-wash denim (yuk). Shoes are as strong as ever…look, they’ve even done a Chloe ‘inspired’ boot!

Loving the black studded boots (however Chloe inspired they may be) at the bottom of the page, must keep a look out for those or something similar!

I’m not really being grabbed by any of it – apart from the lovely little leather belt with book/thingy on it and the purple shoes are very cute.
I’m not a massive fan of most of those trends though so I’m gonna be a tough sell! I’ll agree that most of it doesn’t look dated/old.. The 80s whitewash denim is never a good idea though!

When I first saw the Chloe boots a couple of months back I was hooked. I wanted to have them so bad, as a matter of fact I still do. But they are simply unaffordable. The Topshop ones look all right, but they are nowhere near as beautiful as the the original. They look a bit cheap. However, I might still get them. :)

Lots of 80s mid-western references there, with a bit of early 90s rave thrown in for good measure, which I kind of did last time. I love it for the fun and the memories but think it is a sign I may be getting too old for TS.
