Freedom & Topshop Reclaim To Wear
Sunday, 23 June 2013
So as of Friday the 21st of June 2013 I am officially done with secondary school and free! Next up on the agenda is having an eventful and exciting summer full of travel and new experiences. It still hasn't dawned on me that I don't ever have to tie up that god awful mint, maroon and green tie again but it's a great feeling. Roll on the college life in September (if I ever make up my mind of what to do).
On the 20th of June Topshop made ripples in the fashion pond again by releasing their second capsule collection with 'Reclaim To Wear' consisting of 'up-cycled' waste materials. The collection's aim is to create a successful way of reducing textile waste and encourage sustainability in the fashion industry.
“The inspiration behind the collection was to turn away from
disposable fashion, giving a new lease of life to disregarded prints
from previous seasons,” explained Stephen Mongan, Topshop
head of sourcing and technical services. www.styleite.com
The collection itself is very relaxed with a slight ethical twist featuring loose floral crops and a boho-chic feel to the colour scheme and a play on lace and cool silhouettes.
Check out pieces of the collection here:
Quite a soft and fragile collection created this year I think.
Anyway that's just a little update from me on what's going on with Topshop. I'm off to London for about month on Tuesday to do some work experience (and of course reduce my bank account balance to zero) and I can't wait to escape dank and wet Ireland to actually get a chance to feel the summer sunshine!
Thanks for reading,
