Did you go crazy in the JW Anderson x Topshop drop? We were up early to make sure we got the pieces we wanted online (they have just arrived – yay!) and there were queues at Topshop’s Oxford Circus store. But there’s another designer/high street collection around the corner too and they’re like chalk and cheese. We reckon you’ll be picking a team!
First up, JW Anderson for Topshop. You’ll have to indulge me here. I’m crazy for all of Anderson’s designs from his whimsical prints, powerful paisley, effortlessly chic knitwear and grungy brilliance; made especially wonderful thanks to his sense of humour. If you regularly use our app/website and drop in on our blog (and I do hope you do,) you’ll know that team Snap Fashion is crazy for animals on clothing.
So we are gaga for the collection’s tortoise print separates, cute kitty trousers and I’m in ecstasy over the sporty separates- the perfect varsity-style jacket, quilted paisley tops, humorous jumpers and the little black skirts, which will make the work wardrobe that much cosier and easier this winter and will layer-up a treat. And then there’s the signature tartan and the duffel bag…which might play a part in enticing me back to the gym.
Here’s some of our top picks (trust me, it was like choosing a favourite child).
And now for something completely different. Anna dello Russo’s opulent collection lands in H&M on 4 October and is all about maximalism, gold, bright enamel, gold, turquoise, gold, baroque, more gold…got it? It’s one for glamour girls who like to stand out and love the Vogue Japan editor’s inimitable style. I love the chandelier earrings and statement emerald necklace (that I would wear with a shabby Breton tee) but am leaving the rest to the glossy possie…especially the glam suitcase!
