Topshop has launched their Pre-Fall 2019 Collection, IDOL, a vintage-inspired line which “elevates the rock and roll essence of the ’80s with a modern premium feel”. The launch which arrived on the Topshop website this week has us thinking ahead to those cooler months, ready to make some early season purchases to rock this Autumn. Here is the best of the high street collection which will undoubtedly sell out at rapid speed, so snap up your favourite piece before it does.
The inspiration behind the collection is clear to see, drawing on the tough rock n roll styling of ‘80s idols the pieces include leather detailing, acid wash denim and chunky metal hardware for a real rock-chic look. The collection does however range from these tougher pieces to softer paisley patterned dresses with pussybow necklines referencing alternative vintage looks from the era.
“Hardware, Snakeskin and Leather details give the Collection a Tough-Girl Edge”
“The Styling is Key. Add contrast with Vintage Floral Prints, Rah-Rah Skirts and Sheer Ruffle Tops”
There’s a distinct ‘80s inspired feel to the pieces, with acid wash denim, chunky bombers and high-waisted balloon jeans the era is hard to miss in the silhouettes of the collection. In addition, the leather accessories and lace accents really hark back to the styling of the era but in a contemporary way putting a twist on the romantic trends seen throughout fashion in the 1980s.
Footwear is also a key feature of this collection just as much so as the clothing. Western influenced ankle and thigh-high boots, as well as mules and studded sandals reference a key trend of both now and then with Western styling making a huge impact in recent runway shows.
