TOPSHOP UNIQUE / London Fashion Week AW16 / BRITISH FASHION COUNCIL / BFC / AW16

Topshop’s Unique Autumn/Winter 2016 collection debuted on the catwalks of London Fashion Week, alluding to a very British style of daring, but with a relaxed and sensible attitude. Cozy coats, 70s boots, light-brown trenchcoats, leggings, loose pants, and leopard-print jumpers were some of the sensible daytime options for today’s woman. For the daring night; mini-dresses made of delicate fabrics, pencil skirts, long faux-fur coats, lace, transparencies, ties, choker necklaces and kohl-lined cats’ eyes saw her dressed to kill.

The brand reveals the return of military green, mainly in tops and coats. Khaki, earthy tones, and black and white dominate the colour palette of the collection, complemented by touches of fuchsia and mustard. Some of the outfits featured were monochrome and even totally black, retaining a darkly romantic vintage essence.
Supported by its own makeup brand, Topshop featured a high-definition style with trendy bold eyebrows, wide black cats’ eyes and matte lipstick in nude, fuchsia and purple.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
