Here is the first look at the new Spring/Summer 2011 trends by Topshop.These new styles will reinvent your summer wardrobe, so be the first to get these amazing dresses.
The Snake Valley collection sees a new breed of festival girl, inspired by the 70s ‘Gypsy Rocker’ character embodied by Jimi Hendrix and Lenny Kravitz. Tough elements like snake prints, python leather, and battered biker boots are mixed with Navaho flourishes, including fringing, feathers and tapestry detailing. Prints include paisleys, animal tie dye and feather prints, whilst accessories have a ‘dress-up’ feel with feather headdresses, laser-cut frontier hats, brightly coloured fringed cross-body bags, and sturdy tapestry-detail desert boots.
Swedish Summer draws its inspiration from a glamorous 1970s era, where vintage-inspired pieces have a luxe feel and a dramatic, sweeping silhouette. Homespun cotton crochets and laces are key to this trend, and appear on cream and ecru tunic dresses, whilst soft, transparent fabrics such as crepe de chine and georgette are used in long printed tiered folk dresses and maxi skirts. Accessories include floppy hats, clumpy clog shoes, floral hair garlands and macramé bags in natural colours.
New Age Constellation is a new, modern take on classic tailoring, incorporating urban sportswear elements in luxe new age fabrics and taking inspiration from the pared down look of the mid-‘90s. Fluid flared trousers are teamed with matching T-shirts for a fresh take on the all-in-one, but can also be mix-and-matched, whilst modern ‘combination’ shift dresses of sheer and solid fabrics are twisted and shifted with asymmetric hemlines.
Finally taking the 1970s as its key inspiration, Graduation features bold mix and match separates in cute conversational prints and stripes, like something from the pages of a Jackie annual. Shapes are crisp, clean and simple, with interest coming from contrasting colour and print. Denim is also key and comes in knee-length culottes and chambray playsuits.
