#FILM: THE “HARLEM SHAKE” SUPERMODEL EDITION
As if we needed another reason to love these girls! Yesterday, something amazing surfaced - being this video of Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Rosie Tapner doing the ‘Harlem Shake’. The three supermodels had time to meme it out amid the hustle and bustle backstage at Topshop Unique’s Fall 2013 show. Check it out after the jump:
#LFW: TOPSHOP UNIQUE FALL/WINTER 2013
London Fashion Week has officially begun and has started off with
more Cara Delevingne a bang! This season, Topshop Unique toyed with “laidback luxe” what with over-sized everything, wet-look fabrics, furry crop tops and decadent sequins embodying the entire collection.
#LFW: TOPSHOP UNIQUE SPRING/SUMMER 2013
Talk about innovative. Topshop Unique SS13 was aired live online, where the collection could be personalised to the own customers taste and purchased straight from the catwalk.
Kate Phelan, Creative Director of Topshop explains: “The spirit of 90s fashion was all about women wearing clothes their own way, about a free and individual style that isn’t about copying catwalk looks. That’s what this idea of a 90s revival is about, because that’s the way I look at fashion now, so those ideas feel very powerful.”
OPENING CEREMONY + TOPSHOP CAPSULE COLLECTION
In celebration of the XXX Olympic Games, the super popular Opening Ceremony (who’ve just opened a new London store) and Topshop have teamed up to create a capsule collection featuring clean tops, shorts and skirts in traditional Union Jack colours. The collection was launched at the OC pop-up and is now available from Topshop as well, both in-store and online. The whole collection is very limited to cop it while you can!
MARY KATRANZOU x TOPSHOP
The long-awaited Mary Katrantzou for Topshop collection will finally hit the stores February 17 during London Fashion Week. The nine-piece collection focuses on Mary Katrantzou’s vibrant fantastical prints and sculptural silhouettes with the porcelain bowl-inspired pheasant dress as one of the stand-out pieces (yummy)! Who’s shopping?
TOPSHOP’S SOUTH PACIFIC COLLECTION
How fun and daring! Think florals and bright colors in floaty fabrics and bad-ass print combos! Topshop delivers a bright, mismatched collection with relaxed dresses, skirts + adorable accessories. The collection includes pastels and is somewhat reminiscent of 80s resort attire.
Almost like a darker and more intense version of the Versace x H&M collaborations. So good! And we want all of it! Dubbed “South Pacific” the collection is stocked and ready to be shopped on Topshop.com right now!
A MONTH WITH BRYANT ESLAVA - WEEK 2
Name: Bryant Eslava / Age: 19 / City: NYC / Occupation: Photographer
For WeTheUrban’s first “A Month With” series, we will be joining fashion photographer Bryant Eslava throughout the month of December as he so kindly gives us a glimpse into his fast-paced city life where he’ll check back in each week. So join in as we chronicle the much desired and inspirational life of a kid in a big city with a dream. This week -
I shot CFDA finalist and menswear designer Carlos Campos. Looking through his pieces, I found myself falling in love with them all. I’m more of a jacket, sweater type of person, so it was refreshing seeing some of the newest pieces Carlos is currently working on.
Now that finals are over for the majority of college students, I had a fun guys night out with two of my good friends, David Urbanke and Jesse Jacobs who are also both fashion photographers. We went to see a movie that had a rating of less than 3 stars and it was hilarious for having such bad effects and scene transitions. I also attended the Oliver Palermo styling event at Topshop.
Next week I’ll be flying to California to visit my family and friends. Stay tuned for next weeks post!
