"We took inspiration from sexy seductresses,” said Topshop Creative Director Kate Phelan. “Think Charlotte Rampling, or Kate Moss - it’s a celebration of these gorgeous, powerful women.” And what are they wearing? By day, the statement coat is key, with classic bikers re-imagined in metallic sheepskin and felted khaki. Come night, it’s all about ‘undressing’; double breasted blazers are undone to reveal bras and leather, fabrics become sheerer and dresses are slashed to reveal breastbones and thighs.
"Tailoring is very important. We’re playing with a different silhouette – shoulders have become bigger, the car coat comes back into play, and boxy double breasting is key.” KATE PHELAN, Topshop Creative Director
"The way each girl is styled is never the same. The most important thing is to emphasise her individuality and character; you have to believe a girl in her outfit.” BETH FENTON, Topshop Unique Stylist
