Since its announcement in May, London-based designer Louise Gray’s debut collaboration with Topshop has been one of the most highly anticipated collections of the year. A capsule range of dresses, shirts and trousers, with an accompanying collection of make-up, will be landing in selected stores across the UK and USA on August 23rd. And by the looks of things, it’s a collection for the most daring, bold and colourful fashion personalities out there!
The pieces, almost exclusively adorned in sequins, interpret the “colour and fun” of Gray’s designs, creating a vibrant collection for “the Topshop girl to stay out all night in.” Humorously named eye palettes, lipsticks and eye liners compliment the outlandish and whimsical designs of the clothes.
While it’s all not quite my personal cup of tea, I am totally in awe of the craftmanship, and these photos are so playfully styled they make me want to save all my pennies and splurge on, say, the sequin-covered dress in the last photo above. The art of Gray’s designs is bright and avant garde, further sentiment to London’s reputation at the forefront of creative fashion.
