Topshop to collaborate with British designers Meadham and Kirchoff
Well known for their up-market designer and celebrity collaborations, Topshop makes a return to a designer duo that have already had one successful capsule collection with them. So what shall we expect from them this time around?
The designers are Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchoff, who attended Central Saint Martins together and are now alumni with their very own fashion house: Meadham Kirchoff. They are a relatively unknown fashion brand, with flamboyant and eye-catching runway pieces, but how will this translate into a high street collection?
We need look no further than their previous collaboration with Topshop which, while it only featured twenty pieces, definitely gave an insight into the duo’s tastes. With plenty of sequins, gothic lace and tones of black and neutral, this is grown-up glamorous fun, so when we heard that this collection was inspired by glam rock and Marilyn Manson, naturally we were intrigued! Sounds like it’s along the same kind of lines as previously, but with a bit of added drama…
A selection from the spring collection previously released in 2010 by Meadham and Kirchoff for Topshop. The theme of glittery polka dots and draped black lace ran throughout. But how much will the designers have changed in the last three years?
Their latest offering is their biggest collection yet, featuring eighty pieces, and has been named ‘The Cherrys’. Their first collaboration with high street superstar Topshop bought recognition to their name, and this one seems set to rocket them to success. With Topshop backing you, so are the fashion masses. Check their collection out as it goes live on the 21st of November and in the meantime: expect big things.
