All the World's a Stage at Topshop Unique Autumn/Winter 2016
Can you get more English than a Topshop Unique collection inspired by William Shakespeare, shown at the Tate Gallery? As ever, the brand played to its strengths with a heritage collection that will undoubtedly fly off the shelves. The Duveen galleries of the Tate Britain played host to a show that riffed on the boy-meets-girl theme, mixing masculine pieces like aviator jackets and long johns with feminine designs like slip dresses and lace minis.
You'll love the Winter's Tale story: tunic dresses and sequinned sheaths came printed with a forest landscape around the hem, and the closing evening looks — black velvet dresses and tuxedo jackets — were the epitome of modern luxury. The opening outerwear pieces are also likely to be big hits when they go on sale, especially those khaki bomber jackets and duster coats, and a houndstooth coat with a contrasting brown lapel. Our final top tip? The accessories. Chelsea boots got an update with chunky heels and Perspex inserts, while pearl chokers paid homage to Anne Boleyn's famous monogrammed piece. Add these to your shopping list immediately!
