It’s the Topshop collab we’ve been waiting for all year – the high street giant’s first collaboration with London fashion week star- Irish designer JW Anderson.
It goes on sale on the 15th September in BT2 Dublin and Brown Thomas Cork, offering customers a number of exclusive styles that are not available to purchase anywhere else including quirky printed t-shirts, chic short kilts and a super cool varsity jacket.
Counting Alexa Chung and Kirsten Dunst as super fans, the collection focuses on signature Anderson prints including paisley and tartan.
Jonathan feels strongly about creating a collection of credible, wearable clothing and accessories, with the idea of layering which is key: so shirtdresses over trousers underneath V-neck school jumpers.
Taking its cue from JW Anderson’s collection to date, his range for Topshop is an amalgamation of his signature styles; you’ll see School girl chic meets punk meets American high school preppy and varsity jackets emblazoned with the JW logo. Conversational prints including turtles and zebras are repeated on denim, a traditional heritage tartan appears on cropped tapered trousers on the back.
The Derry born designer was in town recently to showcase his capsule womenswear collection for Brown Thomas Dublin (see main picture above) as part of the Irish Designers CREATE which pays homage to Ireland’s home grown design talent.
With prices ranging from €45.99 to €197.99, we preview JW ANDERSON for TOPSHOP in the gallery below, which features everything from shoes, bags, berets and, all with the JW logo. Our favourite pick is the candy striped iPad case (€29.99) and navy beret.
Availability: JW ANDERSON X TOPSHOP is available in Ireland BT2 Dublin and Brown Thomas Cork from Saturday 15th September.
