As the age old adage goes, anything old can be made new again. This seemed to have been the Topman Design team’s mantra as they mastered up a powerful collection paying homage unmistakably to the golden age of the 70’s. Topman’s designer’s followed a rather simple colour pallet featuring neutral blacks, navys, beiges, and greys for fundamental pieces like pants and jackets. Meanwhile, the line showed personality by infusing bright hues of red and pastel to tie in the summery feel.
In 1970 the Topman Empire was founded in London, England and impressively spread to over 20 countries to date. To date, Topman remains one of the few luxury brands that maintains a true street style aesthetic. The groovy feel of the disco era is undoubtedly alive throughout the collection by way of wide legged trousers, fitted tank tops, and vintage-styled patterns. This could be a subliminal nod to the era in which Topman was founded. When trying to emulate the disco era it’s very easy to go costume with bell bottoms and afros. So it’s much appreciated that the Topman designers did not take such a literal jab at the challenge. They simply made an old style new again through stellar tailoring and modern color blocking that gave the collection an air of freshness. The easy, ready-to-wear, feel of the collection makes Topman’s Spring ideal for the everyday man.
