Riffing on the subcultures of the British Isles is at the heart of Topshop Unique. For SS15, it’s the faded glamour of the British seaside, from pier to Pleasure Beach. At its core is a switched-on, youthful spirit – a dance-all-night, sea-sprayed celebration of British youth culture that lives for the weekend.
With bold cycling jerseys, floral frilly knickers and made-for-dancing pleats, the collection is inspired in equal parts by sportswear (all eyes on the velodrome) and the dance hall. Girl’s girl meets tom-boy: for every pretty dress there’s a hint of lad’s-casual, which is the enduring cool of Unique.
